A little bit of Poe - Day 12 of 31 Days of Halloween


For my project today I decided to try something new. While I was shopping the other day I saw some really cool halloween glasses that were clear glass covered by black paint except for the image...kinda like a burn-out image....so I wanted to try it. I used an old mason jar and some flat black spray paint. I made a stencil out of my stamp and used elmer's glue to adhere it to my jar where I wanted it to stay clear glass. Then I sprayed away! The hardest part was making the stencil. Once the paint was dry i scraped the stencil off to reveal my image. To finish off the jar I used some hot glue to drip down the top and colored it with some nail polish.

These aren't the best pictures in the world...idealy it would have a tealight candle in it, but I didn't have any, so I had to light it up with my lamp so you could see the image.

I'm thinking of doing a mini jar to match that uses the Nevermore stamp (Smeared Ink). Hope you recognize this guy  :)



If you like what you see on our hop and haven't visited the Smeared and Smudged Forum....you really should!! There are tons of talented people there and love to share their art and techniques with each other. Check it out here.

And don't forget the other Wicked Blogs!!! 
The list is still located on my sidebar for your convenience ;)

  5. That is awesome! I would have probably started with a much easier image to make the stencil... like a square... lol Hope you do make the mini jars, that would make a great set.
