Painted Glass Balls with Diamond Gem Embellishments
I'm working to catch up with my craft photography for posting, and top of the agenda for this weekend is the painted glass Christmas balls. They're 'painted' on the inside by swirling paint inside and it's super fun to see all the different patterns that it will make. It's like those twirling paint art works - inside a Christmas ball.
Different from every angle, they're a lovely addition to the Christmas tree. I hadn't made any in ages, after making tons of them a few decades ago, but when I came across these slightly larger versions embellished with silver gem stones I just couldn't resist.
Simple and easy to make, the only thing is you'll need ample space to set them out for occasional rotating while they completely dry. I use plastic or styrofoam cups for the balls to sit in while the paint drips out, and it's a good idea to cover the surface below for any spills.
Have a go, they're lots of fun, or if you want to take a look at mine, they're gradually making their way to the Christmas is Magical shop
