Here is what Cathy said about this project...
I chose the heavy glass coasters that are sold a Michael's as photograph display coasters. They had a metal pocket glued to the back to hold the picture. There was also a 1/2 in wide white painted band along the outside edge of the bottom to act as a photo border. I removed the metal picture holder and sanded the white paint off with a SU sanding block. (sandpaper is too harsh and will scratch the glass)
I used a commercial glass prep solution (smells like rubbing alcohol) to clean the glass and used white embossing powder to emboss the stamped images.
I followed the directions on SCS etched glass tutorial to a point. The SCS tutorial stated to let the etching cream set on the glass for 5 minutes and the etching cream directions said no more than 1 minute. I tried both and it didn't make a difference in the amount of etching.
I wanted to add some straight line detail to the coasters so I used the versamark pen to draw the lines in and embossed them.
(Thank you so much, Cathy, for all the amazing projects you've created with Timeless Treasures! You are such an amazing artist. )
Gina K Designs previews start tonight at 10pm central. I hope you'll stop by to see all the amazing new stamp designs.
