What I did on Saturday

I stamped and embossed frosted glass lamps from Ikea:




And guess what? I discovered that the embossing powder, once heat set, doesn't stay on the frosted glass for very long. Many hours of work, only to find my images vanish with the touch of a finger.

Back to the drawing board, Chumley!

Thanks to the Sasquatch for the nice photos. (Hey, Squatch - when are ya gonna post about DolbyFest 2006? I mean, jeez, it's been weeks now. You'd think you were working on a graduate degree or something! ;-) )

that's too bad that they're not more resiliant, as they are gorgeous.

Suze, I so wish I could get them to stick! It was an experiment, and hopefully I can find another route to making it work...

Wow! They are lovely. I hope you figure something out that will allow the images to be permanent. And such neat clean work. :-)

Did you fire them in a kiln? That should melt the designs into the glass permanently.

Lissa, there are paints at the Ben Franklin that are for glass, not necessarily stamping. I wonder if they would work? I would love to purchase one for Tori's birthday in an ME motif.............HMMMMMMM. Maybe at the cabin?
