Wildflowers

It’s a cold, dark January folks! brrrr….. but my garage is warm with my glass kiln going! Here’s hoping spring is here soon!

Supplies: White opal glass, icicle clear glass, silver foil, Tim Holtz wildflowers dies, Justrite paper craft butterfly die, die cutting machine – I used the Grand Calibur- and a glass kiln 🙂

Directions: Cut your white opal glass into 5.5″ square, icicle clear 5.75″ square. Cut your wildflowers from silver foil (NOT silver leaf). Layer your project- white opal glass, wildflowers, arrange your flowers in a pleasing design. Cap with clear and full fuse. Once it has cooled, slump into a dish form. Enjoy!

If you don’t like wildflowers, use a heart, or any other paper crafting die that will fit on your silver foil page. Experiment. 🙂 Silver reacts differently with different colors of glass. With the white glass it turned a pale yellow gold color. With blue glass it turns a pinkish iridescent color. Some samples of mine are below.  They are available for purchase on my etsy shop, hydeparkhill.etsy.com

Happy Crafting!
