Here’s a great little project that combines two crafts I love- cement casting and glass cutting.
You will need:
- A glass bottle- I used a blue wine bottle. Follow my instructions for cutting glass here.
- Cement. Follow my instructions for making it here.
- Round plastic container- make sure the diameter of the container is a bit larger than the diameter of the glass bottle.
- Cork/floor protectors or padding to add to bottom part of cement part when ready.
- Sandpaper (Optional)
- Glue Gun
- Tea light
First, I split a blue wine glass into two pieces (follow the example from the previous tutorial).
Next, I cast cement in a round disposable plastic container- I used the same container featured in this tutorial – just follow the instructions, skipping the part where you add the brass. Don’t forget to oil the plastic container before adding the cement!
Here’s what it looks like when ready and removed from the plastic:
You can use sandpaper to refine the edges/ create a smoother texture if you like, I actually just like leaving at is. If you do use sandpaper, remove any residue with a soft cloth (don’t forget to throw out in the garbage and not rinse in the sink as it will clog it).
If you want to make sure the cement doesn’t scratch your furniture, you can cut out a round layer of cork or add floor protectors to the bottom of the cement holder with a glue gun.
Here’s what the finished product looks like-
I think it’s lovely! what do you think?
