What a Wine Glass!

Trying to think of what to get that wine lover? Or even make for yourself?
We have come up with a wine lovers solution!

Materials used:
Crystal Clay
Wine Glass
E6000 glue
Chaton Swarvoski Crystals
Flat Back Swarvoski Crystals
Jesse James Dress It Up Buttons
Wire Cutters

Making these glasses are easier than it may look! 
Simply start with a blank wine glass. Grab your crystal clay parts A and B. Mix them together very well (according to package directions). You will have 60-90 minutes work time once mixed. Now, cover the base of your glass. 

Next, cut the loop or shank off the back of your buttons (if the buttons contain them). We used wire cutters to do this. Then, place them into the clay in your desired location. Once placed, press them firmly into the clay so that they will hold once clay dries. 

Now it's time for the crystal chatons. Place these in the clay in the same manner as the buttons. Once all are placed, you can use a soft cloth with a dab of baby oil to smooth finger prints from the clay. 

The last step is to glue on the flat crystals. We added them to the stem as well as the cup area. Allow 12-24 hours for the Crystal Clay to cure. 
Then enjoy!

*NOTE* hand wash only.
