My husband brought home some new oil bottles from one of our favourite stores Canadian Tire. Of course now that I use polymer clay, When I see plain glass or something smooth and shiny that can go in an oven, and yes even tin cans, wooden boxes, anything I can go In the oven at 275°F....I envision covering it with polymer clay somehow. Blank canvases, Waiting to be Decorated.
Blank surfaces, waiting to be decorated. Time flies by faster than one realizes. And "life" as it happens, doesn't always permit time for having fun.
But I made sure I got to have fun This past week. The smooth Boring glass oil bottles Look pretty good If I do say so myself, And so does my husband.
Here is the video tutorial if you want to see What I did...
Now they watch the video, You'll notice that I didn't discuss how I protected the polymer clay decorations on the bottles.
Because this technique is the same one used to make window clingies, The words Olive and Canola, Could just peel right off. So I made sure That the words were cut out As one connected piece. Once it was all baked and cooled, I coated the surface with an epoxy resin. I did push the resin past some of the letters Onto the glass, Hoping it would make sure The decorations stay on okay.
