Fun and Easy Glass Transformation Project
Do you have glass accessories in your staging inventory that you would like to easily transform into something new?
Here's a project that takes very little time and is SO-easy. The results will give you a sea-glass look for very little cost.
This photo shows the supplies you will need, plus a fine bristle paint brush:
1)Glass object (candlesticks, vases, plates +++), 2)Elmer's Glue (undiluted), 3)Food coloring, 4) Paint brush
Make sure to wash the glass piece to remove any grease or dirt.
I used concentrated food coloring and it took only one drop for this color. For more depth of color add more food coloring.
Mix the color and glue thoroughly and simply paint it on to your glass object. It will appear quite streaky when first applied and wet as in the photo below.
Just wait and you will see a transformation as it starts to dry.
When I saw the results I rushed around looking for more pieces to transform, so I suggest that you gather a number of pieces before you begin.
Here are my results in a small vignette with an ocean theme.
I did have one client ask me if she could use it on a window and I would not advise it. The transformed pieces look quite nice in this type of use but when held up to light you can see some streaks and blotches.
Next I'm going to try brown and green.
ENJOY and have fun with the transformation!
