Beaded Suncatcher

Hi everybody,

Ok so I went to Wal Mart and found these sun catchers marked down to $.25. I couldn't pass that up. Of course when you look at the finished product you will see it is not the blank butterfly as in the first picture. I didn't think to take a picture of the daisies (bad me) but I did want you to see what the sun catcher was like before I started.

I began by painting the back side of the sun catcher the color I wanted to show through on the front.

I then filled in the flower on the front with Sure Tac glue. I poured yellow microbeads in the centers of each flower and let it sit until almost dry. Then I added more glue in the petals and added clear microbeads.
You can get the beads and glue from PennyWise Arts. You can click on the PWA blinkie on the right hand side and it will take you to their site.

This isn't a very good picture but perhaps you can see the sparkle of the beads. Be sure to come back for the PWA blog on Friday.
Supplies used
Sun catcher - Kelly's Crafts
Acrylic paint - Delta Creamcoat
Yellow paint - Luna Lights
Clear beads, Yellow beads, Sure Tac - PWA

Have a wonderful Thursday.
