New projects to share!

I know I haven't posted in a long while.
Hubby requires more care and I still work a full time job so that leaves little time for my hobbies.

Pyrex ware is made from plastic packaging that hubby's meds come in. only a few of the indents work for my project. Look at all you packaging before you dispose of it and see if you can use portions before recycling.

I used various nail polishes and coated with a clear coat. I painted the insides with several coats of white first. Let dry well between coats. Use nail art decals to add designs to your dishes or just leave plain.

For clear dishes I have used the epoxy resin in the small tubes that have to be cured with a UV light but sometimes it gets too hot and distorts the plastic.
Sally Hansen Clear Gel coat in the black bottle will work without a light. Just be careful to not go over the same area again and again with the brush or you build up too many bubbles.

This design is hand drawn with a white gel ink pen. My first try! With care and practice it would look a lot better. The camera picks up all flaws, too! Nothing is perfect and I did have fun making these. Experiment and enjoy!
