Here is a fun fused glass soap dish project using a whimsical fish stamp from Heartfelt Creations! Supplies and directions are as follows! Because of the many specialized tools and products used to make this projects I recommend to do this project at a “Paint your own Pottery & Fused Glass Shop”. You could also to this at a paint your pottery shop with ceramic and your own stamps. Use underglaze with the stamps.
Supplies: A glass kiln, glass cutting tools, glass stamp ink, fusible glass- I used System 96 white opal glass and icicle clear glass, hipster soap dish glass mold (Slumpys.com), glass enamel paint G series non-toxic (from Colors of Earth), colored glass frit, millefiori, glass tac or hairspray
Directions: Cut your glass to fit the size of your mold, clean your glass with rubbing alcohol, prepare your glass stamp ink, using a brayer, roll it onto your stamp, stamp your fish onto your glass. When it’s dry, outline with Colors for Earth outlining black, draw your under the sea leaves, let dry. Fill in the fish and leaves with glass enamel colors of choice, let dry. Sprinkle fine blue sky transparent frit for the water, sprinkle fine light and dark amber transparent frit for the sand, put a few millefiori/murrini for little sea creatures around the plants. Use hairspray or glass tac to keep all your pieces in place. Put in kiln, fire to a full fuse. Put in hipster soap dish and slump into the soap dish shape. What a fun project! If you are feeling super creative, make your own soap to fill your dish! 🙂
Happy crafting adventures!
