Summertime I think of the ocean. Thoughts of putting my feet in the sand, looking for shells, building sandcastles, and listening to the surf.
I have seen different tutorials online on how to create the sea glass effect.I had heard of this product, Krylon Sea Glass, and I just had to try it! I had purchased a glass cylinder at Dollar Tree, and made a cut out of a sea horse. I didn’t have any tape, which I would suggest you use, so I used some Elmers glue, and just put little dabs of it around the sea horse:
Isn’t he cute! I’ve used this little guy in a lot of projects. I shook the can really well, and sprayed on a light coat. It’s a semi-translucent, frosted finish. This is how it looked:
I love the color! So pretty. I peeled off the seahorse. (Again, use tape not glue, it will be so much easier to remove)
I put some colored crushed sand (Walmart) inside with a led candle. Pretty! So I searched for something else, and came upon these Dollar Tree candle holders:
I love, love the way they turned out…don’t you? I love that color. When I purchased the aqua color, I also picked up the ‘ice’ color. It looks more like a gray, I didn’t particularly care for how that color turned out.
This spray was easy to use. Just apply two light coats! I just love this color! Be sure to check out my Massive Giveway at kelleysdiy.com $8 something a can but I have plenty left.....hmmm what to paint now.
