I feel like the mad scientist on this project.
What happens when you mix mod podge, rit dye and then paint it on glass.
Let me show you!
First, let me say, sorry for my lack of presence. The boys are home, and keeping me busy.
In fact, I am starting to teach Alex how to drive. Fun, fun, fun…
This project was an interesting process and one that came to fruition two days later.
I had mentioned how interesting this process was on Facebook on day one.
Honestly, not sure how it was going to go.
btw I am using my old camera, and I can so tell the difference in my photos.
I lost my battery charger and had to order a new one.
Here are my supplies:
Old vase from flowers Mike had sent me.
Green apple color rit dye.
I used rit dye for the first time last Fall and you may see
I also used this leafing finish as a last minute as it needed a little something, something!
I love how the inside of the glass looks as well.
Almost looks like blown glass to me.
Loving the finish
and the texture look it left.
I simply mixed the rit and mod podge in a bowl
and painted it on the vase.
Did several coats for two days as it sat on our kitchen table.
After that I added the leafing finish as the final touch.
My husband liked it, although, he did say, that took you a while…
well, yes, but I am slow these days.
Now where will I put it?
It goes perfect in our guest bathroom which is a Spanish style look.
Our Giani granite painted counter top is holding up well too btw.
I think it is going on two years now.
So that’s the deets on Mixing mod podge, rit dye and painting on glass.
It’s a process but in the end a little gem.
Virtually free project, as I had everything on hand.
Thanks for stopping by today!~

I am also sharing a readers work of art that she shared with me.
She made her vases for a fund raiser using my technique.
They are beautiful!
Just thrilled I sparked someone else’s creativity to give it a try.
