My Life Scripture

Philippians 4:4-7 (ESV English Standard Version) Holy Bible
Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. Let the reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds through Christ Jesus.

How to...Use Glaze Pens!

Glaze Pens (Sakura Japan) are fabulous little pens filled with liquid paint!   The pens are designed for nonporous surfaces such as glass, metal, plastic, etc. I use the pens with outline stickers and clear plastic.  Don't use the pens on paper...this is a real waste of the paint and you will not get the desired effect.

To use Glaze pens, you will slightly tap the pen against the surface to get the paint flowing.  Then continue to tap the tip and smooth the paint as it comes from the pen.  You will not get good results if you try to write or draw.  As with any new technique, you will have to practice to get the desired effect.  The paint will be wet.  I usually allow overnight for complete drying of my project.

Those of you that save everything, because you might use it later...Glaze pens are perfect for all those pieces of clear plastic from packaging!  Outline stickers applied to the plastic makes an ideal surface for the Glaze pens.

A work in progress!

Finished Project!
