Quickly & easily color your rhinestones, brads, plastic buttons, and pearls to match
by Mary Noble
Instead of buying colored rhinestones, brads, plastic buttons, or pearls that you use for embellishments, color them with your craft pens - alcohol markers work the best, but often you can use regular coloring markers. Just make sure you color the entire rhinestone/pearl/brad/button and let them dry completely. Voila! Matching inexpensive rhinestones, buttons, brads, or pearls within a few minutes.
