When we came home, I displayed them for a long time on my coffee table (another project for another time), and then they were put away in the cupboard.
While cruising around Pinterest another pin inspired me to type in Sea Glass, and a number of projects came up, including breaking your own bottles and tumbling them in a rock tumbler to achieve the same results of being tossed in the waves for years. And so the project began.
A trip to the dollar store for the frame, and a handy husband who bought me the Quick Grip Permanent Adhesive. It dried clear and was perfect.
While that was setting I sorted the glass into colour piles. There was a lot more brown (beer bottles maybe !?!) than other colours and I didn't want to end up with all of them left at the end.
Then randomly I began glueing them to the glass in a disorderly fashion. Amazingly they all worked in and I am pleased with the results.
Right now my laundry room has been taken over by chickens, and bean plants that are sitting in the windowsill, but as soon as the weather warms enough for all of these to go outside, this southern exposure window will be the perfect home for my Sea Glass Art.
|PS With the sun shining through this medley of glass, it really is a work of art, and I love all of the curved pieces and random colours.|
