1. Alcohol Ink wine glasses and coffee mugs sealed with resin: Well, hello, Marty, peeps. And welcome to this quick D I Y class and project. I know that resident can be a scary medium to work with, especially when you first start. This project is perfect for beginners. So this class is super fun that we're gonna create some simple alcohol in the wine glasses and we're gonna steal them with resin without using a tumbler. So you don't have to buy one of those fancy little machines for this one or anybody that maybe has worked with alcohol inks and resin before. They're just not quite comfortable. It's a great one for any crafter or D i. Y person that wants to try a fun project. And it's a fantastic way to create multiple glasses if you're going to give them away as gifts or if you want to, Selma craft fairs. So in this course, what you're going to discover is we're gonna talk about how to tape prepare your glass for alcohol inks and present. You'll learn to create a simple stained glass look to start with your project. And then we'll add more Alcohol Inc and mix it ibs on that for a more opaque look so you can go with. Either way, it's a great way to kind of get a feel for what you like. We'll also talk about resin prep and how to apply it onto your glass for a beautiful finish . And I really hope you will join me in this class so we'll see you inside. 2. Wine Glass Alcohol Ink and Resin Supplies: so welcome. Ah, welcome to the class. I am excited to share with you what supplies that you'll need. So we're gonna talk about that first before we dive into how to create this. So the first thing only were wine glasses that you can use any type of glass and type of wine glass. They come Stemmle Issa's Well, which is great. You'll need some type of really good tape, like frog tape or Blue painter's tape. You'll need some scissors, and we're gonna tape up the edge of our wine glasses so that we don't get the resin down inside. You'll also need some alcohol inks. You can use the Berries. I'm actually using image mixture of the Berries and the pinata inks. He's coming to small bottles, but they also come in a larger bottle. So I like to buy the bulk for the Blanco and for the gold. And then one other thing to mention is that different brands of alcohol inks and different brands of resin may have different results. So I will say that the pinata works really well with art. Resident never had any issues with fading or changes of color. Once I applied the resin to it. And speaking of resin, I'm gonna be using the brand art resident. They come in the gallon size or some smaller four ounces. If you're just starting again, you can try some other brands of resident epoxy, but just make sure that you read the directions and you test it with your other chemicals. Your alcohol inks before you start for the resin. You will need cups to mixture resin in and some stir sticks. But I recommend this one is a great little kid on the Amazon. Everything you need, it's even got the mat with it. And the great thing about these is they're made of silicone, so they're reasonably actually take the resin out of it. Once you're finished, it will just peel right off, and you can use them again. You'll need some blue gloves, natural gloves and also a mask is great way toe work with alcohol inks. Unless you're working outside or, you know have been ventilation and always recommend using a full face mask. Not just 1/2 based mass, because the Uncle Inc fumes and things. If you they're using, a lot of it can get into your through your eyes as well. And then the cartridges do come simply the Are you gonna make sure that their V o. C. Rated partridges and you want to store them in a plastic bag? You don't leave those out in the open, or else they won't last quite as long. Other thing to keep in mind is your working on glass. So with alcohol inks, if you don't like it, you can wipe it right off using the 91% alcohol. Or you can also use some hand sanitizer that works really well, has a lot of alcohol in it, so you can wipe off and give yourself a free rein to make mistakes and do it again if you want. We have taken some of my other resin courses. You know, I usually use a torch when I'm getting rid of my bubbles, but for this course, we want something a little bit less intrusive. So we're gonna be using just a big lighter to pop those resin bubbles. If you don't have a silicone mat, you can use just a really inexpensive clear shower curtain to dry your resin on top of because it will usually peel right off. And you also could use some strong, like black trash bags that will work as well. A resolute peel off of that. So you put that down over your table so that you don't have any issues. So if you're ready, we're gonna get started by taping up our glasses. 3. Alcohol Ink Sealer Tests : So if you're new to alcohol inks, you may not know that there are a lot of different brands of alcohol inks. And with each one of these brands, you're going to have different chemical reactions with either resin or your sealers or your spray. So it's really important for you, especially if you're just starting out and you have not tried alcohol ink with some of these other types of chemicals to find out what your alcohol and brands are going to do. So we have like T-Rex, We have the Jaccard, Kenyatta inks, we have Ranger inks, and there's burritos. There are a lot of brand new ones coming out because it's getting very popular right now. So make sure that you're testing your inks with a, your resin that you're using because again, different brands of resin will have different reactions as well. And another sealer that we're gonna talk about in a little bit. So the first thing I would recommend that you do before you do anything and this is with any of the alcohol in classes before you seal them, is to test out your your inks and your sealers together to see what they're gonna do. So what I like to do is just take a sheet of UBO paper, mineral paper, ceramic, tile, whatever substrate you want to work on and do a test run. So what I like to do is test out all of the colors that I have as well. Because you will find that within brands, certain colors have a tendency to bleed more than other brands. So another very important thing to do. So what I'm first teaching these classes, you know, I'll have a lot of students that will reach out to me and say, Well, you know, I did the same thing that you did in mine bled or I did the same thing you did in I got dots or there's so many thermally things that will happen. So what I like to tell people is, you know, if you're using the exact same brands that I'm using, then you should give similar results. But in a lot of places outside the US, they may not have some of these brands who you're dealing with different chemicals and you've got to find out what's going to work for you. So I have my T-Rex colors down. They are, they're 12 pillars in their initial start-up kit. And actually T-Rex is just coming out with some brand new colors, so I'll have to try those at a later date. Also the pin yada alcohol inks. I'm Tri knows and I'm not trying the I'm not testing the fixatives or the snow cap or the Blanco for this. So they are a mix of a lot of times they'll hold their color a lot better than some of the other colors that we have because they're not just dies. So the dyes are the biggest culprits and you will find probably, and it might be what the using those dies, but the colors like pinks and purples and some of the greens tend to bleed the most is what I'm finding with my results here. So again, test out what you have. I'm also gonna do the births here as well because I happen to have those in stock and I'm just putting those out on a sheet of paper. And then I'm going to take a sealant called Bright tone. It's made by the crystal crystal lack company. And it's a very tiny little bottle. It's actually spreadable and brush Hubble and it is eight ounce size at I purchased and it is water-based, non yellowing and it has UV protection in it. So this didn't work as well on UBO paper for me visit tended to be very shiny and not what I was looking for. It does seal the inks and I'll show you some of the results here. Now you're going to want to try this again with your resin. If you're if you're doing resin versus this bright tone seal, and I'm going to show you how to do the right cone seal in another lecture, but I just want to show you the test here that I did. So remember, test everything that you have, test your alcohol inks tests to your resins test year. Right tones just test your came are your UV sprays. There's different types of sprays that you can get. Winsor Newton has a brand, rest, solium has a brand. So again, I've not tried everything out. And because you're dealing with chemicals, they are always changing things up and they're always different. So test what you have before you do your creations. So since the bright tone is something brand new to me, I am going to test that today on the colors that I have down here. So it is a very, very light and clear, almost like a polyurethane type of liquid. So it works really easy as far as brushing on. So I just have a little three-quarter inch oval wash brush and I can already see the pink instantly started to change color on the pink. And it did so on the purples. I'm going to clean my brush off, flip it back and continue on. And some of these colors don't react at all. So I can brush them on there and I don't have any problems. So you can see again, the pink and the purple, we're an issue. Moving on to the pin, Jada and brand inks and again, the orange, red so far so good, even the purple, maybe a little bit of pink. Now if I scrub these, what happens initially when I first went over, I didn't have a problem. But as that sits in there or if I scrub it too much or use my paint brush over and over again, it starts to react the colours underneath. So again, very tricky to make sure you test that to scrub them a little bit. Let him sit there for a little bit and see if that soak into those died and reactivates them. So again, the purple seemed to be the culprit. The pink was OK here and now I'm trying to breeze and it was the same issue with the purple. So I thought I would try and my arranger apes, I have those handy. I have a little bit more colors with the Ranger inks and let's just test out a few of those. Okay. All right. I have a few colors down and I'm gonna grab once again, my sealant, my bright tone. And I'm going to put this over these colors for Ranger. And again, if I hit that a couple of times and go back through and scrub it a little bit over and over. I do get a little bit of the colors, especially in that red light comes out a little bit in the orange because again, it's got those red tones in there. So I'm finding repeating pattern here with some of the colors. The green didn't a little bit as well. And I'll show you a close I'm going to let that dry again. If you have a very light touch with this, sometimes you can. Once you get that first coat of the bright tone down, you basically are sealed and then you can put more layers on top of that. So you had to be very careful when you coat something to make sure that you've got a very like hit on some of those colors that may tend to have a reaction to them. So I'm really scrubbing him here. And again, I do have a little bit of that greenish shows through. So let me show you a close-up here. Some of the colors worked a little bit better than others, as we found in most of those. So the Blues were pretty good. The green tended to move a little bit to the red tended to move a little bit. And then the Bernice here, if I go close up, they actually did a little cracking, which was very interesting to see in a couple of those first colors that I laid down, which didn't happen with the other alcohol brands. So that was interesting. So the close up here of the ranger again and the orange, the reds, a little bit of the green and scan those same colors seem to be doing doing a little bit more bleeding or a little bit more of that color change, then some of the other ones did. So again, I hope that was helpful. I am going to spray a few of the colors that I knew were a challenge with some Kamer varnish just so you can see what happens once the camera varnished goes down. So the colors on the left do not have any varnish on them. And I'm going to spray the colors on the right with a one light coat of varnish just to see what happens. And then we're going to add the bright tone on top of those. And you can see that the one on the right with a camera varnish did not move, but the ones on the left, especially as I sat there for a little bit longer, I went back into it and they really moved. So the moral of the story is test your inks test your varnish is test, test, test because you're going to always get different results and I would love to be able to test everything for you guys. But boy, that would be like a whole other class in itself because there's so many different options and so many different brands. So I can't stress it enough to go ahead and test your products to see how they're going to work. 4. Let's begin taping our glasses then adding Alcohol ink: So in order to create your own beautiful wine glasses, you'll need some scissors. You'll need some good tape. This one is frog tape. You'll need some wine glasses. I picked these up a set of 12. They're very basic and clear. You want to make sure that they're clear. I do find that the less that they curve in of the top, it's easier to put the tape on. And you're gonna want to make sure that second of tape so that this one's two inches. It goes inside the glass. When you've put your tape around it, that helps keep any of the resin out and the alcohol inks out. So all I did was I stretched my tapout. Now, this does not have to be perfect, but try to get it as level as you can. I tried to go at least one inch down the glass. He could go a little further if you wanted to, but make sure you give yourself enough space, the top for the lips. You can cover that up and try to get that on there as straight as you can. It's always hard because you're dealing with something that is round. You know, part of the charm is it's not perfect. Just cut the tape off here and I could see I've got a little bit of, ah, lip on this one's one appeal that back off and just adjust that trying to make that is even as possible. Then we go around and just push that tape down with your thumb. Try to get those little bridges underneath for the best that you can have. Some of the Alcohol Inc does leak underneath. You can clean it up once you have your resin on. There. Key is to try to keep the resin out. Go ahead and just push it in. I put that inside, and we're gonna be actually Tiffany's upside down. So again, take your thumb. You could also grab a Popsicle stick or something and just burnish it a little bit. Strike as many of those ridges out of there, but sometimes that ain't just it's it's on glass and it doesn't want to creep down in there . So this is an important part. I, um, thought I did a good job. It's still snuck in on some of the glasses, so no worries you like I said you can clean it up and they were tipos upside down. I'm gonna do all 12 of those glasses. I'm gonna do all the same time. So here we have the glasses. All done. I've got paper towels down. I also have a plastic shower curtain underneath here. Makes it easy of when I chippies upside down. It doesn't stick to it. And when I when I resin this, we're just gonna start adding the alcohol. Ingrid on top. And keep in mind your alcohol inks. Some of them may actually change color when you put resin on. I've had good. Like, this is the Bary spar. And I've had good luck with Kenyatta brand. So test yours before you go ahead and seal it cause it could change your colors. Now, this is beautiful as is. If you want more of that stained glass Look, you could just add your colors to it and let it dry, and then put the clear resin right on top of this. But I said I want to do a more opaque look for mine, so I'm gonna be adding some of the Blanco white Bipin iata to mind to make it a little bit more Gothic and less transparent. I start with the base color versus I like some of those to drop through their make a really light purple like green. And you notice that I am constantly turning my glass slowly. Now, this is all almost like the tumblers that you may have seen. But with the glasses, the alcohol ankle, Dr pretty quickly. And since we're gonna place a resin on it, it really you can use this by hand. It works, Justus Well, being constantly rotating an awful lot of white on there that times we're gonna have to add more color to this. I'm using the purple briberies, and I'm also using the lavender. You could see how beautifully alcohol inks flow. No more purple down here. This is where you just get to have fun and see what your colors we're going to do, and everyone is gonna be a little bit different. But if you follow that same type of color pattern, you could get things that you can make a set from set up to sort of four. So just keep that in mind, or you could do a nice mixed bag of them as well. So you can continue to add those colors on top and really create a color that you're happy with and having the movement so you'll see is this starts to dry. When you add the inks, it spreads around and picks up some of those other colors. I have a lot of ink on here, and the mix itiveness themselves are a little bit thicker than the alcohol inks and that white and the gold things like that will take a little bit longer to dry. Then, to me, your other colors. I tip it upside down. Some of those colors will move down the glass up the glass so you can change your patterns on their. By doing this, I have a few little white spots, which I actually kind of light. We're gonna just fill in a few of those with more of the purple wherever the whites Not over that. So that's going to be born translucent, where that white is going to be more opaque and just continuing to turn that really slowly to get those links to move around the glass. It's no that have a nice base on here with the purples going to add a little bit of that gold. I'm still doing this really quickly. This alcohol Inc is not completely dry, one of adding this gold on top of it, and you will see that it just kind of bounces and dances and it's sitting on top of the moment. But if I add some more wet ink on top here, you can see how does this beautiful separation? And that's how you get it to follow the outside of that color. It just pushes it aside, moves it and just catches the very edges of that, you know, that separates it, comes in a beautiful look. Love the goal to get him rocking that back and forth, moving up and down wherever I want that gold to go, continuing to rotate it once you're happy with how it looks and it started to dry limits was not moving quite as much. Then you can tip that glass upside down onto a plastic trash bag or a plastic shower curtain, and it's going to and not have that ink stick to it. And then we're gonna let those dry. I'll show you a couple other ones here that I've done really quickly so you can see some of the other colors that were using some greens and some grays. And then we, um, worked on some other colors with some cranberry and still some of that gold. I love the gold. So once I have all my glasses finished with the alcoholic, I'm gonna let that to sit and dry for 24 hours before we add that coat of resin to it to seal it in. Resident is really important stuff. It is because alcohol inks. If you were washed thes, you are going to wash the inks right off of it. I do want to mention that there are many brands of resin and many different types of resin , so make sure that you're reading the directions for the reason that you purchase and make sure that you're taking any safety precautions that they recommend and that goes with the use of any chemicals. Make sure that you have a well ventilated area when you're using any of these 5. Adding the a coat of resin : So for resin, the type that I use is a brand called art resin, and according to them, they do not have any vo ces, which stands for volatile organic compounds, which are very hazardous. I like this one. It doesn't have any smell. It has about a 45 minute work time, and it is a two part resin. So it's one part hardener of one part resin, and the two together will create a beautiful shine. And once it's hardened and it's a crystal clear look, it's really pretty. So I'm going to do is mix that resin up according to the directions, and again, aren't resin is one part hardener and one part resin. I'm using about 11 ounce of each, so I have a total of two ounces of resin to do basically all 12 of these glasses. So you see, I mixed up. I have a little bit of bubbles in here. I'm okay with that. You want to make sure that your resin is at room temperature about 70 degrees, and you want to make sure it stays that way because that's going to cheer a little bit faster. The warmer, the resin is the better a cures, the faster cures and all I've done is just mixed this up and I'm using my glove. And I am just scooping that on and rotating that glass all the way around, making sure I've got full coverage on there and you can see by the light when you rotate it back. A 40 conceit. There's any bubbles and you can see if you've really missed a spot. And then what I do once I have it on their tip it upside down on top of either trash bag or something of a glossy surface. Love using those shower curtains, the clear shower curtains because you can wipe out right off you can see it, and the resident does peel off of that once it's dry. So I'm gonna go ahead and put the resin on all of these glasses. You can see I'm just basically using one hand and rotating it with the other. I've got my little Popsicle stick just to really scoop it on here. You don't want a whole lot because you don't want it to tip it over. You don't wanna waste a lot of that. Resins was gonna pour off. So you just want a nice, good, solid coverage and not too thick and making sure I'm tipping it upside down and getting the edge lie that you won't even see once that hardens. I'm trying to get the on the stem. It all just leaving up. But the upper portion of that and where the tape is that's going to peel off a swell and you'll notice the beautiful sheen that that has. Some of the colors are more of a matte finish, accepted that gold, so really, it just makes it glow super shiny. I also want to mention the reason we put the resin on here is because alcohol things need to be sealed or else they're going to scrape off. They will come off with water. Um, is they're very susceptible to this type of things, So resin is one of the best ways to seal it, for using it as a glass, and I don't put the resin all the way to the top. It's why we have that tape of they're even though it does say that is okay to eat off according to our present brand. But just to be on the safe side again. I like Teoh. Have a little caution. Put the tape around there so nobody's actually putting their lips to that, even though the brand does say that you can eat office once it is dry. So you'll notice that some of it may have some air bubbles normally with resin. With my larger pieces and things, I'm using a small plumbers towards or crumble a torch. Chef George, for this case because I don't want that resin t heat up quite as much as I don't want it to . When it heats up, it moves a lot easier. It comes more liquefied, so I want this a little thicker. I don't want it to move off of the glass. So I'm going to want to get this all on here, going to take just a small, big lighter and just torch a few of those bubbles out again, not trying to get it heated up a whole lot. And most of that reservoirs stay in place now if you're brand new to resin and this might be a little scary, but let me tell you, the more you practice, the better you'll get and the more you understand it. Don't expect all your glasses to come. Helping exactly perfect that first time. You may have some things you have to work through, but you will get You will get it right. I promise. So here I am, taking just that little bit lighter and just moving around the edges of that. And you can see, um, with the naked eye here when I'm close that I can see my bubbles and I can tell if they're popping and doing it quickly. Don't want to leave it in place too long. I don't want that resin to get real warm and liquefy on me too much and wanted to keep that a little bit thicker consistency. So again, just rotating that really quickly and moving that along. I didn't have a hard time popping the bubbles. That's pretty pretty thin on here. So once of those bubbles ofhim popped. If you're quick at this, you want to set your glasses down. Check him about 10 minutes later. Usually have about 15 to 20 minutes to catch those bubbles. Once that resin starts to cure, you don't want to go back in and try to get any bubbles afterward. because that will even indention in your in your resin. We want a beautiful clear finish with us. Like I said, you could check for the 1st 15 minutes and tortured again. If you find a few and then after that, you're gonna want to leave it and having a few bubbles here and there. Not going to matter. Really. Now these cannot be put in the dishwasher. I would recommend that you have these hand washed, as with most hand painted glass. So we're going to set these aside. I'm going to let that dry for 24 hours at the same 70 degrees of it all possible, and it will be ready to come back and remove that tape. 6. Pulling of the tape: so let that sit now for 24 hours, you can tell if you touch The resident is still slightly tacky or sticky. It's ah too soon to pull it off. So make sure that that is dry. 24 hours for the brand art Resident works are very well, as long as your home is staying at that 70 degrees. So you do have to kind of test yours to see when yours is going to be ready. Because if you're mixing up a big amount of resin and you're in a warm environment in a big cup, it will tend to, um, actually warm up, and therefore it will actually curable faster, less resin. You mix up the slower Cheras I find so and again, that's what the art resin brand, if you're using a different type of resident, may be completely different. So just pay attention to your brand. So I pulled that tape off. You can see I do have a little bit of Alcohol Inc that seeped in underneath. So I need to do is take either alcohol the 91% rubbing alcohol, or you can also take hand sanitizer, which is what I'm using here because that way it doesn't isn't drip off quite a Z. These a little bit thicker to work with. And I just go around the as you might need to do this a few times just to get all of that off of there and clean it up. But you can see I get most of that off there. It looks pretty good. Look at that shine. Is that pretty? So it will do the 2nd 1 Harris is one with a purple. It's really easy. If you use that tape and you flipped it over the edge and tucked it under that resin will just seep down, and I don't have a whole lot of resin. You can see him pulling it off pretty easy. And again, I did have quite a bit that seeped under unease, and I did use a lot of ink on these, so I probably could have put that tape on. There are a little bit better, and you might need to try different types of tapes. Usually, the frog tape works very well for me or blue painter tape works very well for me again. It all cleans right off and the summer taking a cloth to do it versus the paper towel to clean up. I just founded the friction of the rubbing of this one works a little bit better to get that these difficult areas off most of it. I'm gonna drip a little bit more of the hand sanitizer on there and just take my fingers in that around inside and outside of the glass. And that will just activate the alcohol anchor reactivates it so it comes off much easier. You can see I've got quite a bit on there. Still, we'll continue to the white bet up. Now, I do want to say if you do get a little bit of resin on there again, it's really important. If you catch that early, you could probably take your fingernail and remove any resin that has dripped down underneath. I, um, seem to only have a problem with the alcohol ink seeping underneath. They don't ever have a problem with a resin on that, but if you do, you can also use a little bit of oven cleaner. You know, the smooth top stoves, the oven cleaner on the glassworks were really well taken. Take a fingernail. Just kind of scrape it up. If you get any little pieces on there and then just wash them out again, make sure that if you're giving these gifts, don't put them in the dishwasher. Make sure you let people know is for art resident maximum temperature when it's cured. The intolerant is about 120 F or 50 degrees Celsius. So temperatures that are really high The cure pieces may become more flexible, but a lot of times once they harden their once they cool off, they hardened back up again. But it could peel some of that away from your glass, so, uh, uh, hand wash is best. 7. Coffee Cups: right. So you've tried the wine glasses. Let's go ahead and try a porcelain coffee cup. This time I'll be using some orange and some sapphire blue from pinata inks and also showing you extender will be using some of the mix it. Yvonne the gold. Let's get started. We're gonna just the same way we did basically with our wine glasses so you can see if I have not taped my porcelain cup yet. I'm just gonna go ahead and do the alcohol inks on top of this home without using the tape . First, I'm using some extender here extenders. I want to tell you the difference between using an extender and using alcohol or 91% alcohol. Extent you can see does make things flow and move and makes it blend a little bit better. It doesn't tend to lighten your alcohol inks quite as much will lighten some, but you see that it's it's a thicker liquid that is a little bit different than using the isopropyl alcohol cause. Isopropyl will very much wash out your colors, lighten them and it just everything spreads a lot faster using alcohol and you'll see the difference. We'll do both from here. I love the colors of these. These to work really well together, along with the gold. So it makes this beautiful shade of blue teal green. I don't even know what color it is exactly. But I love it's one of my favorite colors. I mix up together so you'll notice because I don't have my tape on. I didn't get some of that out bawling seeping toward the front of the cup where your mouth is going to be, which is No, a big deal. So what I'm gonna do is grab my 91% alcohol and just wipe that off now while it's still wet . So it's a little bit different looking than what with wine glasses, workers, the wine glasses we taped prior. So it's, you know, that's covering all the way up to that tape mark where this is going to look a little bit different. It's gonna be more organic looking, so I'm gonna wipe out for really well, you could see it cleans right up. It's a great thing about these porcelain cups, these white cups loss glossy like tiles and things. They just it just comes right off so really easy to dio, and then you could just take your finger and touch up the bottom because I knew I was going to fight with that fight without all the time. So just go ahead and cover it just easier and then take your finger and then you could just do a little tapping. So doesn't have to be perfect around the edge, especially when you're doing tape. Sometimes it's, um it's fun just to be very. I have very abstract around the edges and you don't have those nice, clean lines. You don't always have to have those clean lines. I think this looks very pretty this way. Most looks like little hydrangeas over there. Isn't that beautiful? So you can see it's ah ah, just really fast to do really pretty. So we're gonna let this dry. Meanwhile, I want to show you another cup that I had done prior and I had tried some texture ing, and it didn't work out the way I wanted to, so I'm gonna just go ahead and pour that 91% alcohol right on top. You can see where I had picked it up. I left little marks with my hand. So we're just gonna can avoid this all down at the alcohol on top and just let it run. And you could see a little bit of that texture in there. Just take my finger and just reactivate all those inks that were on here. Not worrying about those edges will clean that up again. At the very end was some alcohol. It still looks pretty, though, doesn't it? So you can see how much lighter that blue is. Now that we know we're not. We no longer using the extended were using alcohol. And so the alcohol, you see how it moves a lot Mawr and it really lightens those colors so much more and actually drives a little bit quicker than what the extender does. Isn't that pretty? Look at the drips on that. You could let it dry just like that if you wanted to. That's gorgeous. Almost looks like that, um, handmade pottery. So we're gonna put some of that gold on there again, and see, that's almost almost very, very light blue. Now, on those edges, when you have a lot of alcohol on the bottom of the plate here, so it's very wet. Still, you've got quite a bit on here. This is going to continue to move until that alcohol dries mixed. It is a little bit thicker, so that's a holding its own a little bit better than what some of the colors will dio again . I love to have that darker shade or put the alcohol colors on top of those Mexicans because it just disperses it, spreads it out so pretty a little bit orange back in here, do the same thing as it did with wine glasses. Just continue to rock it back. And for Ricketts emotion, it's a movement in there. I like to set it down just to see what it's gonna do. And you can see it started to give a little bit more of the streaks. So I'm gonna again. I'm gonna take my tissue off. Just cover it with a little bit of the alcohol. The 91% and we're just gonna clean around the edges and so easy that comes off super easy. And if you anything insider, get it on the handle, you want to take it off. You can easily do that as well removed from the handle removed from the bottom. You can see how simple that is. Do you recommend if you want that nice blending look, try to get it done before it really starts to dry that we won't reactivate some of the other colors underneath, then against taking my finger and is touching up a few those areas so it's not perfectly straight. Could make it again. More organic looking. It's now going to set those aside again and let them dry for probably 24 hours. And then we're going to begin a resident process, and now we're going to add the resin like we did with the wine glasses. Now the difference with this one is I want to show you I have used black electrical tape for this, and it's really easy to use on your glasses because it mold and bend. It's a little bit more expensive than just regular tape, which everybody has. But, you know, I thought a lot of people probably have electrical tape as well, so I want to show you another option. I'm going to go ahead and do the same thing. It is taped around the edges, and we have mixed up our resin, and I'm just going to again take it with my hand and move that all around the cup, making sure that I get the edges there and get the handle as well. Especially easy. One of them. I wiped off the handle, so it's nice and clean, and the other one has a little bit of alcohol ink on it now because our coffee cup actually has a handle. You do need to baby so that a little bit more when you're applying the resin to the handle . I've had a couple of pieces that I haven't gone back to check, and that resin has dripped down underneath and actually forms a little drip mark underneath . They handle. Let's go ahead and just check that in about 15 minutes or so. Just baby said that make sure that you don't have any little resin drips that are forming and then taking that lighter and just giving it the light pop of the bubbles. They were gonna let these dry, and we're gonna go back to make way for hours and show you what they look like. All right, so what? These overnight, it's actually been about 15 hours so you can do this a little bit earlier. Just make sure that again. Your glasses. Not tacky. It does make it easier to pull off that resin or the tape when it hasn't completely hardened, so a little bit earlier is better. But just make sure that you're not doing it too soon. So your residents still sticky and you're gonna be leaving fingerprints in your cups as you're pulling it off. So the electrical tape came off pretty good. I just had to use my scissors to kind of get in there to get it started. And then I did have a little bit of a seem left where? There to traces of tape started. So what I did was after he pulled us off, I just went ahead and ran it under some hot water, and I was able to take my finger and just scrape that off, and it didn't seem to bother the rest of the cup. It all had a nice good seal. So, you know, taking up any little extra pieces that may have been attached to the tape that didn't come off. So here is the finished peas. It came out beautiful. So again. The possibilities are really endless with us. You can use this same method with plates you can use it with and kind of bulls, serving dishes, anything that's got that porcelain or glass. So I can't wait to see what you do for projects. I want to do more about you. But I am ready. Teoh, just go around the house and soothe. 8. 12/15/20 Update: Another Sealing Option: So if you're looking for something other than resin, I want to share with you another brand of sealer that I tried. It's called Bright tone and is made by Crystal lack company. Before the last one here, I'm just going to share with you guys, I have another Inc. that just came in. It's Shaphan inks and this is by a company in Australia, and it's a very small business. Her name is Herbie and they column Funkadelic. It has the name of the inks. And these ones have a little bit more of a really pretty gold tones and in them. So I thought I would just share that with you as well. Now I ordered these from Australia and they did come with this little brush with which I thought was really cool that you do have to shake them up to get a little bit of gold or more like a fixative that way. And they also have a little dropper. So if you choose to do the drop or if you want to drop it on, you can do it that way or use a little brush to brush it on. And since we've done the dropping stuff Hill, I thought I would share with you really quickly how easy this is to paint it on with a brush. So you can see a beautiful shades of pink and it's got a lovely little shimmer of gold in here as well, which is kind of hard to capture with my lighting today, but it really pretty buy hold it just right. You can see some of that gold finches dripping it on here, same way we did with the other cups. Now I'm going to switch colors down to shaking them up really well. And this one is more of a more of a coppery color in here, which is really pretty. Yeah, just scribbling it on here. It's going to mix a little bit with that pink. They drive out the same as the regular alcohol inks do. And here we add a little bit of shimmer and a little bit of fixative. And here they are very pretty. And then we'll try a little bit at the green, the abdomen here, letting a mix. And I gold is really popping out as it dries. I'm going to try to keep out again just below the lip line so that we don't have to go all the way up now will tell you is we're gonna be using the bright tone on this. A little bit about this company. Again, it's new for me, but they're water-based. It's non yellowing, has UV protection built into it, which is a really special thing when you're working with alcohol and inks. And because I don't want to miss anything, I'm actually going to read the back of that container for you. It's as bright tone hs, top coat built fast and hard with less coats due to its high resin content. So there's resident in this, it is environmentally safe and will outperform any other finished its class. Use anywhere and extra level of protection and build is needed. There's added UV stabilizers, which will keep dyes and stains brilliant and will help protect colors from fading. Dries crystal-clear even on a dark exotic would write tone is a interior top coat that is excellent for use on wood. So it's interior. Keep that in mind. Metal or glass. Super hard, super clear and super easy to use it as Scratch, chemical and water resistant. It's self-leveling, non yellowing, low odor, low VOCs, crystal lack. So it is a top coats can be applied to either brushing, can be applied either by brushing or spring gravity fed or HV LP sprayer. See you website for details on spring instructions. I have not tried to spray it. Use a good quality brush prior to top coding that we recommend using crystalline amber tone sanding sealer to enrich warm natural tones on wood and minimizing green arising, which you don't have to worry about for the ceramic, it is not necessary to sand in-between each top coat says it will bond to the prior coat. A top coat can be used over thoroughly dried oil or water-based stains, shellac, lacquer, polyurethane or acrylic. If recoding over an old finish sand first and remove any surface finish which you're not going to be doing for this coverage is up to 30 square feet per eight ounces. So it does go along way. Drive time is usually one to two hours and it does say to allow three to four hours inbetween recoding and do not use sandpaper or tack cloth, serrated sandpaper or attack clause do not freeze, do not apply below 60 degrees. That's very important. So if you're in the winter, make sure where you're in a cold environment. 60 degrees is your number and you want to think about, and with art resident, I believe it is 70 degrees. You don't want to be doing that under 70 degrees, as it is, do not thin or clean the lacquer solvent or mineral spirits use soap and water for clean up. Okay, but the big thing is, suppose I say finish, they actually say instrument finish for Bowl turning and barcodes and more. So. Very interesting product. So this is what jar of the eight-ounce looks like. It looks bigger in the picture when you go to order it. Fyi. And this is all completely dried now with our Shaphan alcohol inks. And I'm going to add the bright tone on top. I will tell you that I did find that this didn't have any problem whatsoever ceiling this with this particular ANC. And again, we've talked about this before. Make sure you're testing it before. You add either your resin or for this case, the bright tone, which is another option for varnish basically which I tested. This went out, it will let you know for about two months. I did do the first coat very light and I did a brush on. And again, you could do what you did with the varnish by leaving it down below that drink client if you want, just to be safe up and it did say that it's safe to drink from evidently and once it's dry, non-toxic. So I'll leave that up to you. I would probably if I'm going to be using these and selling them myself, I would not go all the way around around it. I would do what I did with the resin where I go probably tape it and go up to that point. Now this is a lot thinner than the resin. So you probably will have a little bit less of that lip. But here is what happened after two months. This works really well. You have to hand wash these again, there's no dishwashing in any of these because you're painting something on top of that ceramic. It's not built into it. So if you're selling these Eugenie to let people know that, and I will leave you guys a little chart or a little tab you can have printed off if you want, just with the care information on these. So very light coat, let that dry per direction. So in about three or four hours, I'll go back and I did five coats of this. And again, this is really important because here I'm wiping that up just around the edge once I've got that on there because I did not want to leave that on there for one once it dries. And it can you can just take some alcohol and gold winner or even water with this one just around the edge and that will wipe rate off. So five coats of this, you do need to do five coat and I'll tell you why I did only two coats on the bottom of this cup. And after about a week or so, that did start to peel because water got trapped underneath there because I only had two coats on. So very important to do your five coats. And very important not to leave this in water. Sitting in water, it's a quick hand wash and then dry and reuse me. This is a piece of art. It's not like something that you would buy in a store that was sealed while it was being made. So this is a top coat of something, you're actually painting on something. So keep that in mind. And it came out gorges, I'm using it. I used it for like I said, two months and then I actually cracked it. I crack ethnic kinda cup and that's why I would have tested at longer for you guys. But it seemed to work quite well and my resin cups now after about six months are working really well. I do all that. You know, I tried to microwave the resin one just to see what it was going to do and it did bubble. I had a couple little bubbles in there. They did flattened back out. But there was still that little texture, that little little bubble underneath trapped in the resin. So I would keep it out of the microwave as well. Hand wash again and take really good care of them because they are like a little mini piece of art. 9. Wine Glass Project time : So thanks so much for joining me. Today is now your time.
