Today I ran a snow globe making workshop for my local W.I. ! It was so much fun! I still think there’s some things I need to tweak and perfect, ie, those red berries I used kind of dissolved a bit, too much glitter just makes a mess and the glue we used didn’t stick to glass well! I went for fast drying glue as it was a workshop, but I’d recommend araldite for use at home.
But the basics for you to practice at home are:
-Sand down the inside of your jar lid to make it easier for the glue to attach to.
-Glue down small objects with non-water soluble strong glue. You can use photographs, just laminate them first and cut around the laminated image leaving a laminate border around the image.
-Wait for it to dry.
-Fill your jar with distilled water (if you’re in the UK the sell de-iodised water in Wilko’s for 79p).
-Put in a generous dash of glycerine (the more glycerine the slower the glitter will fall!)
- Add glitter! Don’t go overboard, as too much just looks hectic!
- Put glue around the rim of the lid.
-Screw on and leave upside down to dry.
-Turn over and shake!
