So, after throwing away my bubbled botched attempt, I decided to try again. I was having numerous problems getting the Paper glaze to not have bubbles. I was squeezing it directly onto the washer, and someone suggested I use a paintbrush. Well.....that was no good for me either. I ended up wiping it off because it had evenmore bubbles than just sqeezing it did.
Well, I realized I hadn't cut the tip of the paper glaze enough, so trying to apply it through such a small hole was making teeny tiny air bubbles that I couldn't get rid of. Solution? CUT THE TIP!
Now, it seems to be working much better, but I am still annoyed at how long it takes to set. I got my sample in the mail of Diamond Glaze, and that stuff set in about 1/4 of the time as the paper glaze....super speedy. If only someplace in Tucson sold it!
My mother in laws birthday is today, and I decided to give THIS a try for her present. Remember the pretty drapery material I got for 88 cents? Well, I used that to make:
I had a small scrap from trimming around the pot, and thought....."Hmmm...could I make a washer necklace with fabric too?" So I gave it a shot. This is what it looks like (without the cord):
And here are the other washers I made that didn't have the bubble blasphemy!
Look at how happy they are to be bubble free??? :)
