Today's project is glass ornaments.
Glass ornaments are difficult to color with inks so I used etchall
® dip 'n etch
to etch my ornaments before coloring them.
I placed the ornaments in a bowl of dip 'n etch
for approximately 15 minutes. Once I removed them, I rinsed and dried them thoroughly. Dip 'n etch is reusable so be sure to put it back into the container once you are done etching your projects.
Begin by spritzing the ornaments with a variety of colors of spray Inks. I used Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays, but any spray inks will work.
Be sure to heat set between each color to avoid the colors getting muddy.
Spritz white ink last and watch how it interacts with the other colors.
Every ornament needs a bow so I used the Bowdabra
to create a bow for each ornament.
The Bowdabra can create any sized bow with any type of ribbon.
Use Fabri-Tac to adhere pearl lace to the ornaments.
Add a Joy Clair
stamped sentiment and die cut it with Spellbinders dies for the center of the ornaments. Use the excess gold wire from the bow as the ornament hanger.
