Seaglass Beach 🌊

beach summer Aug 09, 2023

I am dreaming of the beach, so we are going to squeeze in one last beach art piece before the summer is over! We are working with an 8x8 canvas, and this art project has minimal painting and lots of glass goodies. We'll be adding sea glass in blues and greens, tinted seashells, Caribbean Blue and Solex glass, flat gems, seed beads, bubbles, and more! 

First, I am going to paint a beach background. I am going to paint the lower portion of my canvas with Vintage White for the sand. Then, I'll use Spa Blue, Castaway, and white paint to create my ocean and sky. I'm using Castaway for the ocean and going lighter towards the top of my canvas, blending the colors together. Dry with a heat tool.

Next, I am going to lay out some of the glass onto my canvas. I am adding the Solex glass, Caribbean Blue glass, and tinted seashells right where my sand and ocean meet. (We will add the rest of the sea glass, seed beads, and other glass after the resin is on)

Next, we'll add resin. We're going to elevate our canvas using blocks. Mix 1/2- 1oz total resin depending on how much glass you are using and stir gently for three minutes. Pour the resin onto your glass and spread it onto the rest of your canvas using your gloved fingers or brush.

Now, we are going to come back in and add our Ashland Decorative filler gems in Dreamy Aqua and sea glass to the bottom of our canvas. Then, I will sprinkle in some iridescent seed beads, mint green seed beads, Crystal Luster seed beads, and glass bubbles. I'll drizzle a little bit of resin over top again. 

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