Project Instructions

  • 1
    Clean off glass block from any labels or smudges.
  • 2
    Before using all Pearl Pens and Glitter Liners on glass, practice on scrap paper to establish the flow of the medium.
  • 3
    You can create the snowflake in a number of ways. Trace the size of the block onto paper and draw out a design with pen or pencil. Tape to back of block to use as a guide. The other way is to free hand it!
  • 4
    For the design shown, use the Ice White Pearl Pen to draw and X from one corner of the block to the other, drawing just to the inside of the wall of the block (not to the edge).
  • 5
    Draw a + so that there will now be 8 quadrants or sections.
  • 6
    Draw small circles at the end of each spoke with Ice White.
  • 7
    Draw two sets of crescent shapes from one section to the next, one a third of the way in with Cream Pearl Pen and 2/3 of the way in with Ice White Pearl Pen to create an almost spider web design.
  • 8
    While letting these sections start to dry, add dots with Silver Chrome Pearl Pen on either side of the spokes of the outer sections of the designs and for the middle section, lines.
  • 9
    Fill the circles on the end of the snowflake spokes with Silver Glitter Liner.
  • 10
    Fill the inner section of the spokes with Iridescent Glitter Liner. Let set, but not totally dry. Add 3 dots of Silver Chrome Pearl Pen. Use toothpick or awl and drag through the 3 dots to create design. Add dot of Silver Chrome in center.
  • 11
    Let thoroughly dry. Add in Hi-Lites or a light set.
