Window clings are really great for all kinds of things. Our favorite clings are the educational ones and the holiday ones are pretty neat too. Instead of buying them, I decided to try my cling making skills. I had never made clings before, but I had high hopes and the outcome looked pretty creative.
|ABC Window Clings|
* Gallery Glass Window Color Crystal Clear- 2 fl oz.
* Wooden skewer with one flat side and one pointy side
* Any kind of paint
* Gallery Glass Plastic Sheet
* You can use an outline of anything to trace as a design.
Optional Supply: Any kind of Glitter Glue- I put Crystal Clear on a star and once dry I spread a layer of Glitter GLue and let it dry. I used what I had on hand instead of going out for more supplies.
|Wet ABC Clings|
1. Trace out your chosen design with liquid lead on the flat side of blank. Let sit for a few hours until set.2. Fill the letters with Crystal Clear, then put a drop of whatever color in different spots and use the flat part of the skewer to blend out evenly to lead lines. You can play around with different colors and blends.
NOTE: Make sure the paint is touching all of the liquid lead outline and that there are no bubbles. Use the pointy side of the skewer to pop bubbles. You can tap the underside of the sheet to make air bubbles rise.
3. Let dry.
Unsuccessful supply: Stained glass paint purchased from Walmart. I applied it by itself on a few letters and it caused cracking and a unstable letter. I applied a coat of Crystal Clear to fix it. I would say blend it in all together next time around.
If you try it out let me know how it goes!
