Wow I love these! I've bookmarked this for when I'm allowed access to the glass lab at my art school (sadly not for another year or so). I'm sure they have the right tools, I just hope I don't lose any fingers haha. These would be really awesome with commemorative kitschy plates! I wish I hadn't given away that Ronald Reagan one I got at my thrift store as a Pollyanna.
Gosh, thanks! My glazier jokes "Let me be the one that bleeds [holds up hands scarred from 20-some years of workign with glass] not you." You are on to something with kitchy plates! I can totally see several Franklin Mint series being appropriate!
Beautiful! I'd like to know: is E6000 laden with lots of warnings? Epoxy kinda scares me - the labels freak me out. I'd love to try this but...scary epoxy...
I am a decorative painter dealing with lots and lots of products 99% of which are water-based and E6000 isn't any scarier based on reading the label than any other stuff. Even zero-VOC paint has paragraphs of warnings. E6000 stinks and you should use it in a well-ventilated area, but I mostly use small amounts and it's winter, so I'm using it indoors and just shut it in the bathroom with the vent fan on to cure. I've used some epoxies and the scariest thing about those for me is the speed with which I have to work.
Very pretty. I wouldn't have thought to cut down the wine glasses. That was a good idea. Also I think the dried leaves on the table on the second picture add to the photo, not detract from it.
Since the E-6000 would not be in contact with food, it should be okay to use.
Thanks, craftewoman! I can't take credit for the idea of using wine glasses. I saw it somewhere on the internet and decided to try myself. And that's a good point about the E6000 and food. I'd imagine that most cupcakes are in papers, too which would be an added protection if you was concerned.
