Let It Snow!

Hey Monday Magic Makers!
Today's project is super easy! I love love love this new 'Snow' detailer gel we have this holiday season! As soon as I saw it, I wanted to test it out! The thickness of the paste inside the tube allows for tiny detail work without dripping. 

You can use the Snow paste tube to do writing, or designs on glass! You only need a few supplies!

Any size glass vase
Snow Writer
Krylon Sea Glass Spray in 'ice' color 
rubbing alcohol / cloth or paper towel

 First wipe down your glass vase with rubbing alcohol in order to clean it of any smudges or dirt. Then use your Snow writer and by squeezing the tube, make designs or write your favorite holiday Christmas quote! The thicker your lines, the longer it will take to dry. Minimum dry time is 1 hour.

 As it dries, the texture is still smooth, but takes on a snow-like appearance!

Then with your Seaglass Spray, apply the spray to the glass in thin layers for maximum translucency, or concentrate sprayed area to the bottom of your vase for that chilled frosty appearance! 

Have fun and happy crafting!
