A friend of mine sent me tiny glass viles, and I antiqued them Tim Holtz style.
After posting them on Facebook, I was asked quite a few times how I did it, so below the step by step tutorial. I used a bigger jar as the viles were all done already.
This is a clean plain glass jar.
I covered the jar with a matte medium. I used Claudine Helmuth Studio by Ranger, but a matte mod podge or something similar will do also. Let that dry really well.
After the jar had completely dried, I covered it with a medium layer of Rock Candy Distress Crackle Paint. Again, this needs to dry completely.
The next step is selecting a colour to stain the glass with. In this case I wanted the glass to have a vintage blue look so I went for the aqua alcohol ink.
This is what the glass looks like after I applied the alcohol ink with my ink blending tool and felt.
This is the befor picture of the tiny glass viles I was given.....
And this is what the viles look like now...
I hope this tutorial was helpful and you will give this a try, it is so much fun and looks amazing.
Until.next time, take care.
