Here's my supplies.
First, I spread a thin coat of Modge Podge on the inside of the pieces I wanted to “faux up” - LOL this sounds like a swear word. Then, I cut small squares of silver leaf and pasted these on the sides of the glass. I continued doing this until the whole inside of the thing was covered. After I had a sufficient amount of silver leaf, I took a dry paper towel and rubbed the inside lightly to expose some of the glass. Tha tha that’s all folks!
Add the silver leaf to the thin layer of Modge Podge.
This cost about $5.00 with plenty of materials left over.
This project was not difficult. It was, however, MESSY! Silver leaf can be hard to work with and sticky fingers don’t make it easier. Major handwashing here!
My advice, if you want to try this project yourself, is try to track down some looking glass paint, even if it comes from a guy who knows a guy.
I love that stuff!!! Great job! Thanks for sharing at TT.ReplyDelete
