1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Removing Years-old Pebeo Vitrea off glass? on: July 21, 2012 09:48:52 PM
Has anyone tried removing Pebeo Vitrea off glass after having it on for years? I didn't bake it. Just sealed it with varnish (I think the stuff for outdoor furniture). I'd like to repaint it. Or is it SOL? Thanks.

Just received my thank-you gift from craftaddiction:


A hand-carved stamp of my favourite dog breed (Siberian Husky)!
I don't usually use stamps so I had to dig around to see if I still had an inkpad...and judging from the result of said inkpad...looks like I might need to get a new one  Tongue

Thanks craftaddiction!

Well, I decided to use UTEE because it's a bit less fumey and a lot easier to fix if I make mistakes. However, I wanted to make embedded objects and am having trouble finding silicone ice cube trays that use dome-shapes instead of the perfect cubes. Also, I was wondering if stuff like Diamond glaze would do much in the resin molds?

In the shallower molds, I've been using polymer clay and paper clay to make pendant shapes, (and then embellishing with paper or other stuff and clear-coating). It's a bit tough to get the polymer clay ones out so I leave one side or piece with a long tail. And definitely sprinkle baby powder or corn starch in mold before pressing in anything.

Thanks a bunch! I do have quite a bit of paper clay. Some of them, though, I was hoping to encase stuff in (the jewelry shapes). I don't think liquid Sculpey would do the trick? =/

You might want to search up Chinese Knot tutorials too. There are books (http://www.amazon.com/Chinese-Knots-Beaded-Jewellery-Millodot/dp/0855329688/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1282173099&sr=1-1) - Amazon has tons of the Chinese Knot books in english. Have fun!

I tried Googling, and searching the forums, but there doesn't seem to be many answers aside from polymer clay...How about wax? I originally bought the molds to try UTEE with but decided to look for silicone molds or metal cookie cutters instead. Now I'm stuck with a bunch of resin molds and I don't know what to do with them. Any ideas?

I bought a bracelet mould, but put that UTEE in it and it melted, LOL..

If you're up to making your own molds, silicone should work with UTEE as well. Different silicone compositions have different melting points, but it's still a pretty safe bet that mold-making silicones won't melt like polypropylene Smiley

Crud. I know this is an old post....however, I bought a bunch of Castin' Craft molds just to see if they would work with UTEE...however...after reading this post...it sounds like it'd melt?? Can someone confirm? Thanks.
