Coloring Books for Coloring Glass


Imagine has so many fun coloring products, and I've used a lot of them. But StazOn Studio Glaze was a product I had never used, and I decided it was time to give it a try! Glass Painting is a lot of fun, and StazOn Studio Glaze makes it so easy!

Coloring books for grownups seem to be all the rage lately, but what if you want to do something beyond the page? Sometimes it's a shame to hide those pretty designs in a book. This tutorial will show you how to use your favorite coloring book pages on glass.

1. As you can see, I had started to color this page already. But I thought it was so pretty, that I wanted to put it on a glass. This coloring book happens to be small, but you can use any size book. I photocopied the page and finished off the lines that were incomplete because they went off the page.

2. The bottom of my glass was really narrow, so I cut a few slits upwards into the image so that I could get it to fit better. Also, to make this project a whole lot easier, I took a piece of fleece fabric (because it's nice and thick, so it holds it's shape well), and covered it with an old pillowcase that I use for messy projects. I fluffed it around the glass to create a bed to lay the glass in, so that I could keep it face up easily without it rolling.

3. I began to trace the outline of the flower on to my glass using Jet Black StazOn Studio Glaze. The walls of my glass were really thick, so it made it a little tricky to follow the lines, but eventually I was able to compensate for the thickness.

4. Once I completed the outline, I freehanded a couple of swirls and let the Jet Black dry.

5. I filled in the first row of petals with Midnight Blue. Because I have the black outline, I can move right on to my next color without worrying about the colors bleeding.


6. Next up, I used Gothic Purple. The Studio Glaze is nice and thick, but I wanted to make sure I filled in the tiny points at the base of the petals, so I used the Taper Point DoodleStix to push the color into the petal. I love the stiffness of the DoodleStix. They are perfect for working with Studio Glaze.

7. I used Emerald City on the 3rd row of petals. And the Taper Point DoodleStix came in quite handy once again.

8. Next I filled in the center circles and used the Chisel tip DoodleStix to clean up any spots that I accidentally got paint on the black outline. It worked perfectly! Then, I let it all dry.

Look at how those colors shine! As this was my first time using the Studio Glaze, I wasn't sure what to expect, but I love the translucency. I laid the colors on pretty thick, hoping to get a true stained glass effect, and I think I got it.

I took my finished glass outside to see it in the light and I love how it looks. The colors are bright and bold. And one of the best parts is that I don't have to bake the glass. Now, I'm off to go have a drink! Thanks for checking out my tutorial. Have an inspiring day!

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
