Moving on with my experiments.
Today, I am sharing some pretty diy dyed candle votives with rit dye and elmer’s glue.
If you missed my first rit dye elmer’s glue experiment you can check that out.
Essentially mod podge and elmer’s glue are a similar entity. I think, but not sure what the difference is in ingredients.
I bought cheap little votives to start.
Dollar tree of course is the best place to find these.
I used the Quick Elmer’s glue.
It really does dry quickly.
Like in 5 minutes quickly.
I painted each votive with ONE coat of quick dry elmers on the OUTSIDE only.
Let it dry
Then took my color choices
and painted on one coat of rit dye. I used a smaller artist brush.
After those dried completely, which was not long.
I went and painted over each votive with Martha steward metallic glaze Just for a little shimmer.
Embellished each votive with a ribbon and a cute button
This was so easy and so fast, I feel like painting all glass in sight!
These little votives will look so cute on a Spring table.
Thanks for stopping by today! I always enjoy your visits.
