Remember how I said that we’d be making some more washer stuff?
Here’s a YouTube video, if you’re interested.
Things I’ve learned:
I used E6000 to glue down the paper. Let it dry COMPLETELY or you’ll get rippling when you apply the glaze.
It’s OK to have “paper over hang” (like that term?). Once your adhesive is dry, take a nail file and file downward all around the edges. Make sure to file or sand the inside edge, too.
Diamond Glaze is hard to come by in Utah. I used Aleene’s Paper Glaze. It’s available at Michael’s. I’ve done 18 washers (the big ones were 2″) and still have some left. Also, DON’T SHAKE IT. You’ll get bubbles. Most of the bubbles can be popped quickly with a needle. Pop them as soon as you notice them. It looks milky straight out of the bottle, but it dries clear. The drying time was about 2 days.
Now we just need to string them!
