1  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Re: GLASS Globs.... those silly little things... I need your help. on: July 30, 2013 09:43:29 AM
I used to make these all the time.  The picture needs to be thin (either paper or a can) and cut to fit the glass.  You must use silicon glue for this project!
Put a dot of the glue on bottom of the glass and press down on the image.  One shot so make sure you line it up correctly.  The silicon glue will spread out and any bubbles will disappear when dry.  For a necklace, glue a metal eye hook and then a cut piece of felt on the back with E6000.
2  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Re: preserving/saving beer bottle labels on a bottle on: July 30, 2013 09:35:59 AM
I have somewhat successfully cut a few bottles, but what I am looking for now is a way to preserve the label on the bottle. Any ideas out there?

We used a airplane grade varnish my husband got from work and painted it on over the label with a small overlap on the glass bottle.  We use it the bottle with the varnished label for olive oil and haven't had an issue with the oil breaking it down or ruining it and it's been 1 year.  We don't wash it, only a quick wipe with a damp cloth to wipe off excess oil. 

I don't think airplane grade varnish is something anyone can get but I bet boat hull varnish is the closest in quality. 

Hope it works!
3  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Faux panes on glass/mirror on: July 30, 2013 08:30:14 AM
Hello all! First post!

I am trying to create faux window panes on five 12x12 mirrors.  I want to create an antiqued pane glass look on these mirrors and want the faux panes to be 3D and as real looking as possible.  My first idea was to use half round wooden dowels but that won't work.  My second idea was to use puffy paint but the puffy paint peels off the glass mirror pretty easily.
I will be spray painting the mirror.  I can spray the mirror before adding the puffy paint if it will help the puffy paint to stick more permanently.
