Colouring on Glass!

Hi Everyone!  It's Sunday afternoon here and I'm teaching the Brisbane Copic Certification Class tomorrow, when I thought......hmmmm....might be good to have a colouring on glass sample ---- so this is what I ended up with!!  I found this cute glass jar at a discount store a while ago and thought it would work well for this project.

I used the centre and border from JustRite's Stitched in Love set and stamped it carefully (be careful, stamps like to slide on glass!) with Brilliance Graphic Black ink and heat embossed it with CLEAR embossing powder.  (Don't use coloured EP - your copics don't like it!)  I actually had to be careful with the EP and blow a lot of it off and then used a fine tipped paintbrush to remove fiddly bits and then blasted it with my heat gun!  Now colouring on glass is very different to colouring on paper, obviously it doesn't absorb because it's non-porous.  I coloured with Copics (R89, R85, G28, YR18, Y38, C7).  Did you notice how DARK those colours are that I used, with Copics being translucent on a non-porous surface they look much paler on glass!  I finished by simply adding some ribbon around the top and finishing with a bow.  Three guesses what I'm going to store in this jar!!  ;-)


Stamps - Stitched with Love (JustRite)
Ink - Brilliance Graphic Black
Accessories - Copics, Clear EP, Ribbon, Bow Easy.

That's all for today, thanks for visiting!!!!  :)
