Take your ordinary clear Christmas balls and turn them into a piece of art!
Here are some plain Christmas balls that I picked up at a garage sale for .10 each
Ordinary to Extraordinary - #SPiTchallenge
I placed a coat of Mod Podge over the balls
I let them dry over night...yes, that is a hanger hanging on my kitchen light fixture!
I gathered my and syringe...have you ever seen such amazing stain/glaze colors?? They are SPiTabulace! Oh and did you know they smell like jasmine?
After I added my SPiT I took a plastic bag and mashed it slightly around the ball to give it a textured look. I let them dry for a few hours before the final step.
I added a coat of spray laquere for sealing.
The sealant gives it the shiny finish and they turn out beautiful! Awesome for an easy Christmas gift for yourself or others!

Moon on Feb 28, 2017For a glass project, I prefer Pebeo glass paint, which is permanent and can be baked on to the project. I accidentally got some on a mug while doing a project, and figured the dishwasher would take it off because I hadn't cured and baked it, but the heat of the dishwasher baked it on and now I have a mug with permanent purple spots. The reason I bring it up is because I would have concerns that a finish applied to the surface that has to be sealed might not hold up if the project you want to apply it to is for use with water, such as putting fresh flowers in a vase. I would be concerned that the mod podge and stain wouldn't hold up to something that would need to be washed from time to time or might crack off even if it's sealed? I also think that the Pebeo might make the colors more clear, where the mod podge might make the colors less clear when you want a clear, sparkling ornament. Don't get me wrong, I'm a fan of mod podge, really! I just think that Pebeo is a better product for this sort of application. Pebeo is permanent when it's baked, and apparently even when it isn't. Just my 2 cents. http://en.pebeo.com/Creative-leisure/Painting...
