O' Christmas Cone Glass Block

I haven't done a glass block for some time now and when I got the newest Friendly Kritter's image, O' Christmas Cone, I knew I had to try it on a block!

If you'd like to try your hand at glass blocks, I have a tutorial here
The block is painted with Gesso, stamped, then watercolored with reinkers. I use a homemade cloud template to sponge off (just a piece of cardboard cut with scallop scissors).

I like to use Fantastix instead of a waterbrush as I feel it gives me a little more control with the colors. They're made by Tsukineko, kind of a dense foam with a point.

Before giving it a final coat of Krylon sealer, I went around the edges with a Pearl Dabber by Ranger.

thanks for stopping!

Hello Dawn,
I was wondering do you know how do they put a photo on glass block?

Anonymous, I don't know. You'd have to print it on very thin paper like tissue paper then mod podge it on would be my guess.
