Blue Hyacinth πŸ’™

flower spring May 28, 2024

Today, we’re using a 5x7 canvas to create a beautiful blue hyacinth flower. This project stands out for its simplicity - minimal painting (only three colors!), no need for tracing, and tons of glass goodies to play with. We’ll be incorporating vibrant blue glass pieces, plastic flowers, cut glass pieces, vitrigraph, and a variety of seed beads to bring this masterpiece to life.

Start by painting your background with a coat of white paint. Then, blend in blue paint in the top area of your canvas and light green in the bottom area of your canvas. Dry with a heat tool.

Now let's add glass! I'm going to use 1/2 inch blue glass and shape it into a hyacinth flower. Then, I'll add two pieces of green glass that I nipped from a vase for the leaves and a piece of green vitrigraph to create the stem. 

Mix 1 ounce of resin and stir gently for three minutes. Pour the resin onto your glass and spread it onto your canvas using your gloved fingers or brush. 

Next, we'll add even more embellishments! I'm sprinkling Crystal Turquoise seed beads, Crystal Sea Foam seed beads, Crystal seed beads, and Turquoise seed beads. Drizzle another layer of resin. I'll also add blue plastic flowers on top with more resin on top. Finally, I'll throw on some random coordinating blue beads. 

Use a heat gun to pop your bubbles. Keep your heat moving at all times!
