God! Do you guys remember Faster Plaster?!!! I was in love with this stuff!!! Because I have so much of both it and fabric transfers just laying around, I decided I wanted to see if the fabric transfer would work on plaster, so I molded an ornament with the plaster and transferred a picture -- and it works!!! Now my sample here isn't very good because I got overzealous and didn't allow the ornament to completely cool before removing the transfer, so if you try this please let your project cool completely before removing the transfer:
I think I'll do more of these, personalized for Christmas present tags, and cover them with varnish for a nice gloss! Add a bow and it'll be a gift on a gift! And, I'm going to try it other materials too to see what kind of results I'll get.
And lastly, I'd purchased some multi-colored glitter glue. I normally don't buy glitter glues unless it's Stickles but the colors were so striking I thought I'd try them:
Hated them!!! I've gotten so spoiled to Stickles whereas other glitter glues dry so flat and loses a lot of the glimmer and sheen. Well, not wanting to throw them away, I decided I'd see if I could use them to make embellies which can be used on cards or something -- you scrapbookers can even probably use them in your scrapbooks; create your own design!. What I did was spread the glue and made some swirls on a sheet of waxed paper. The glue I spread out, once dry, I realized could be cut, punched, reshaped -- now my mind is really reeling!!! Here are some of my samples I did in a hurry just to test:
Isn't that teddy bear cute?!!! Now that I know I can do this, I'll be a bit neater the next time I try it and more creative.
Now I'll leave you with a little tip you may or may not know; you can add a few drops of vinegar to white glue, mix it well and paint it along the sealing edge your handmade envies to create a lickable glue seal!
Just thought I'd share; that's all for now!
I'll be seeing you!
