Making DIY decorative glass block crafts are a growing idea to personalize, and etching them is one of the best ways to accomplish this. This time she etched them with Winnie the Pooh designs and experimented with glitter sticks and watercolors to make a light colored glass blocks.
She provided the below details!
This is a 5 pound glass block. I found and scaled the design I wanted for a customer, transferred the design onto the glass using transfer paper and then etched each design on each side. I purchased glitter sticks and strategically put some glitter to outline it but also left some of the etched lines bare without glitter. It adds an awesome color illusion without consuming the essence of the etching, and when the glitter completely dries, you can still see the etching!
I played around with some water colors as well. The one picture shows a green colored water with some silver glitter inside. It can be shaken and looks awesome, like a sensory bottle! The other picture shows a different color scheme: clear water, clear Elmer’s glue and neon pink glitter. This option turned out awesome as well.
The first image below shows a collage of the steps she took to etch and decorate the above glass block and the second shows another Winnie the Pooh project she worked on.
