How am I? Doing great after a big scare from "the" Buster! I assumed he had a tummy ache the other evening, so I gave him a bit of Mylanta for his diarrhea; several hours later he was vomiting, and shortly after when he went out I noticed blood in his stool -- I panicked!!! To make a long story short, I got him to an emergency vet and it seems Buster must have picked up something "tasty" along one of our walks which caused a stomach infection. He was given meds and I took him to his vet yesterday morning for a follow-up where I was assured the meds would clear up the infection and that Buster would be okay. Of course since I've been giving him almost undividied attention, he's really playing it up... LOL!!! Who ever called animals dum?!!!
While monitoring Buster, I've been visiting with many of you and I'm so impressed by all the beautiful projects you're doing. It was so relaxing sitting here and browsing your blogs.
Last night, after Buster went to bed, I decided I wanted to play with something new I've been waiting to try. I wanted to practice using these new supplies on something small because I had no idea how to use them and/or how it would work. So a made a small box out of transparency and started playing. Now I'm no artist but I hand-outlined what I thought vaguely looked like a rose with leaves and filled it in. Here's what I came out with:
So, does it look like glass to you? I thought it came out pretty good considering I can't draw, and up close it actually really does look like stained glass!!! Maybe if you click the picture to enlarge it you'll see some of the effect.
Not only does it have the appearance of real glass, I love the texture and dimension it gives. So, what is it?
Has anyone tried this yet? If so, you've got to tell what what you think because I think I love this stuff!!! It's so much fun to play with too!!! Like glass it's transparent, dries absolutely clear and can even be handwashed. And, now that I've had a minute to play with it, I can't wait to move on to a real project using it (minus my own sketching--definitely!!!) It's made to use on most transparent surfaces where you want a glass effect!
