This year I used the classic universal vinyl glue VINAVIL to create home made glass and window winter decoration for my house and as little presents for my friends.
To create this snow crystal I printed some templates from the internet (http://www.bastelideen.info/html/bastelvorlage_schneeflocke_11.html
) on a A4 sheet of paper and inserted them in sheet protectors (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Punched_pocket
Then I used a plastic squeeze bottle (sauce or condiment dispenser) filled with vinyl glue to cover the images with a thick layer of glue and I uniformly spreaded on the top of the fresh glue a lot of white transparent glitter.
When the decoration is dry and transparent, you can slightly wet it on the back side and press it on a smooth glass surface, like a window or a mirror.
My favourite is the golden star!
I also created some decoration without glitter and used some colored china inks to paint on the dry glue surface:
Sometimes I added I touch of glitter after the ink, and I completed the details with glitter pens, as for the "Nelli snowflake" decoration:
In this case, I finished the decoration with some layers of transparent acrylic spray paint to better fix the details on the surface.
For other examples and full explanation of my technique you can look at my italian blog here: http://vogliounamelablu.blogspot.it/2015/12/window-colors-fai-da-te-decorazioni.html
