Spring Daffodil 🌼

flower spring Mar 27, 2024

Today, we'll be exploring how to create a stunning spring daffodil out of glass and resin! Using pieces cut from a glass bowl found at HomeGoods, along with vibrant green vitrigraph, crushed green glass, and delicate seed beads, we'll craft a one-of-a-kind piece of art. Whether you're an experienced glass artist or just starting out, you will love this tutorial!

To cut the petal shapes from a bowl, I used a scoring tool to score along the petal shapes of the bowl. Then, I'll line up my breaking pliers with the score line and squeeze to break off the glass pieces. Make sure you are wearing goggles and gloves to do this! Use a honing stone to dull the sharp points on your cut pieces.

Next, we'll paint our background! I am using a 4x12 canvas and a yellow-green color with white to coat the background. Dry with a heat tool.

I'd also like to create a splatter effect on the background. I'm going to mix green paint with water, dip an old toothbrush into the mixture, and run my fingers along the bristles right above my canvas. Dry with a heat tool.

I'm going to arrange my glass flower petals and green vitrigraph, using tacky glue as I go to secure it to my canvas. Then, I'll add some crushed green glass to the bottom of my piece. 

We're going to elevate our canvas using blocks. Mix 1/2 ounce of resin and stir gently for three minutes. Pour the resin onto your glass and canvas and spread it using your gloved fingers or brush.

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

Finally, I will add yellow seed beads to my flower center.
