One of my favorite CTMH products is Liquid Glass. It is applied like puff paint and goes on somewhat milky. When it dries it it totally clear and leaves a glassy embossed look. I use it a lot on cards...for example, I made a Christmas card of a palm tree with ornaments on it for my aunt in Florida (sorry, I don't have a picture). I colored the ornaments with colored pencils and then applied Liquid Glass over them. The color looks even more vibrant under the Liquid Glass, and then it also has a glassy embossed look. It's so fun!
Liquid Glass is also a VERY strong adhesive. I use it a lot when I adhere ribbon to my cards or scrapbook pages. It has a stronger bond than adhesive runners. It takes a little time to dry, but dries fairly quickly.
But this little tube does more than adhere your craft projects. It's great for around the house too. I have had this wooden "plaque" of my name since I was a baby. It fell off my shelf and broke about a year ago. I tried fixing it with wood glue and it took too long to dry so I gave up. (I didn't have any fancy tools to keep the wood clamped together while drying.) So it recently occurred to me that I should try fixing it with Liquid Glass. It totally worked! You can see the line in the "m" still, but this sucker is almost good as new.
And then today I was wearing some old tennis shoes. They're not good running shoes or anything, but I still like wearing them on lazy days. The rubber sole was coming off on the heel of one of the shoes. I applied Liquid Glass today and it's already dry and good as new! Now I can keep wearing my comfy shoes without the annoying sole flapping as I walk :)
I know I get obsessed with things pretty easily, but can you blame me on this one? I mean, even if you're not crafty you have no excuse not to get this wonder product. It's only $6.95 (+tax/shipping) from Close to my Heart and the tube lasts a LONG time! I got mine several months ago and have used it A LOT and it's barely a quarter gone.
You can order by emailing me or hosting a workshop/craft party . Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I'm hoping to get a myctmh website soon, and when I do you can order online.
