|This tiny glass bauble would look nice on a Shabby Chic Christmas tree.|
People have been marbleizing glass baubles for years and why not? It is both a fun and a simple way to add a bit of pizzazz to ordinary glass baubles.
- acrylic paints: one very light color combined with one or two very bright colors
- clear glass bauble with detachable metal catche and hook
- disposable paper cup
- Ribbon or fancy wire for hanging
- tacky white glue
- For this peppermint swirled, glass bauble I dripped red and white acrylic paints into my glass bauble and swirled these two colors around inside the ornament.
- Then I turned the glass bauble upside down and stood it inside of a disposable paper cup. I let this drain for an hour or so.
- Then I removed the bauble and turned it right side up, cleaned off the lip of the glass and replaced the metal catche.
- I twisted an old sprig of winter white berries around the metal catch adding tacky glue to the old vintage wire.
- I looped a piece of matching winter berry spring through the bauble's hook and twisted it to make a fancy hoop in order to hang my marbleized bauble from my feather tree.
You can also make similar marbleized ornaments with alcohol inks and
compressed air. Ranger Ink has a video here to show you how to do this.
