Okely dokely, here's another tute for ya. This one is awesome!!!  Cheesy You're going to need a ton of patience and a lot of time for this. I've spent hours on one sheet of clay without noticing.

This tutorial will be for making a sheet of plastic. It can be stuck to a window, cut and pasted, used for books, bookmarks, jewelry...........

A little inspirtation before we begin...

pane of glass
oil paints
glass paints
acrylic paints
gold leaf
pearlex powders
paint brushes
rubbing alcohol
anything flat and heat proof Smiley

Paint your pane of glass with a very thin layer of TLS. I tinted it with a tiny bit of glass paints. If you use oil paints the finished plastic will be opaque. Sprinkle a bit of gold leaf, glitter or podwers if you want. Bake this for 5 to 7 minutes.




I start stamping my clay almost as soon as it comes out of the oven to make the paint dry faster.  Wink If you're using oil paints you need to bake your stamped piece for about 10 to 15 minutes. (they take forever to dry!)
I used black acrylic paint and pink and purple glass paints for these.

Fill in your stamped area with tinted TLS and bake again for 5-7 minutes.

Keep building up your plastic until you're happy with the look.  Grin I put another layer of TLS with pearlex powders on one and glitter on another. Turn your oven to about 300 to 310 and bake for 10 to 15 minutes.

Peel and use!
