Instructions

  1. Open the snowglobe.  Add the star tip to the Collage Clay bag.  Add stars of Collage Clay to the base of the snow globe.  Add taller areas that look like snow drifts.  Sprinkle glitter over the Collage Clay.
  2. Embed miniature items into the glittered Collage Clay by pressing them into the Collage Clay.  Allow to dry for 10 hours.
  3. Make a Mod Melt gem by heating a Mod Melt stick in a high temp mini hot glue gun.  Squeeze the heated melt into the gem mold.  Allow to cool for 7 min.  Paint with Metallic Antique Copper paint.  (two coats) Top-coat with Extreme Glitter silver.
  4. Reassemble the snow globe.  Hot glue ribbon around the base.  Hot glue the Mod Melt gem and two snowflake rhinestones to the ribbon.
