Still playing around with these glass tiles to see what they can do. Some things I’ve learned so far:
Glass heat embosses nicely – but it stays HOT for a long time. Leave it be for at least 5-10 minutes.
Aleene’s Tacky Glue, Beacon’s 3-in-1 Advanced, and E6000 will be your best friends for attaching things to these like brads (clip off the feet), rhinestones and the ribbon to hang. Put the Glue Dots away – they’re lousy on glass.
Glass is very friendly with acrylic paint, rubons, Staz On ink, Sakura Glaze pens, embossing powders, outline stickers…
You can also stamp the paper first and then put the glass tile down. You lose the layered dimensional effect (which you can’t see well in pics), BUT, it’s much easier to center your image – especially if you’re using wood mounted stamps.
Here are a couple more I’ve finished.
The ornament above has Basic Grey paper attached to the back stickles around the edges, a couple of outline stamps, and a Making Memories brad used for the hanger. I opened up the brad feet (on these decorative brads they’re on the outer edges then pinched in the middle) and glued the brad to the front. Then on the back (after the glue dried), I re-bent the feet to form a rounded holder I can either string ribbon through or an ornament hanger.
This one was simply to play with the outline sticker. I colored it in using Sakura glaze and souffle pens. A quick Making Memories rubon then used Beacon’s 3 in 1 Glue (because it dries FAST – otherwise I’d still be sitting here on the second side holding it down while it dried, lol) to attach the trim. Trim was something I picked up in a craft store a year or so ago – it has a lightweight wire within so it is somewhat shapeable. I couldn’t get a decent pic of this – the green is much prettier and the swished in colors on the scarf actually looks much better in person, lol!
