The supplies don't have to be expensive.
I have seen similar Instrutables on pebble glass. I have made these for years. This is how I make them.
Step 1: Gather Supplies
You will need:
larger clear flat back Floral glass pieces
washable gel glue
stronger glue to apply the magnets
a pie pan to put a hot glue gun on (if using)
clear nail polish
plain white paper.
Step 2: Select, Trace, and Cut Out the Image.
Now place the picture behind it and hold up to a light. Pick the floral glass that looks best.
Use a pencil to trace the image. Cut a little inside your line.
TRACE AND CUT OUT AN IDENTICAL SHAPED PIECE OF PLAIN WHITE PAPER FOR A BACKING (IF NEEDED)
Flaws in the glass can alter the look of the finished craft- I am working on how to fix this!
Step 3: How to Improve a Flawed Piece of Glass
The polish seemed to fill in the textured parts of the flawed glass.
Step 4: Glue on the Image With Gel Glue
YOU MAY NEED THE WHITE PAPER BACKING PIECES FOR SOME IMAGES. IMAGES ON THE BACK SIDE OF MAGAZINE PAGES MAY BLEED THROUGH. JUST PLACE IT OVER YOUR IMAGE WHILE GLUE IS STILL WET.
Step 5: Clear Polish Used As Sealant
Once dry, a soft slightly damp cloth can be used to remove excess glue or nail polish.
If you don't like the look of the finished glass just soak in warm water with a little dish soap- the paper will come right off!
Step 6: Glue on Magnets or Use for Other Crafts.
Please follow directions and be extra aware of cautions listed on the package. Use glue in a well ventilated area.
Have fun and craft safely!
Step 7: Other Craft Ideas
This is my haunted candy jar. Add battery powered tea light candle and the pictures glow!
