Anyone remember the technique tags? It was a well intentioned series of blog posts that got pushed aside for life. Well, I am going to revisit them, and push myself to complete the series so I can finally pick a winner to receive the beautiful set of tags. (More information on that later.) With no further ado. . .
Let’s start with Liquid Glass. (Z679) Some have said it’s the same as liquid glaze you can pick up at a local craft store, but I will politely disagree. I purchased the “off brand” at a scrapbook retreat as I ran out of Liquid glass. It was not the same. It didn’t hold it’s shape when creating a puddle of it or covering an embellishment, and it certainly didn’t hold as well as Liquid Glass. I used it up on Christmas cards, and was very happy to see it fly into the plastic recycle container!
In this tag, I tried to show many ways Liquid Glass and enhance your project.
To “pop” the center of a flower
Add some re-inker and create “berries” on a branch
It’s also a great adhesive for buttons and other bulky embellishments
Liquid Applique is another product that you can do different things with it.
Heat for puffy clouds, fur on animals, or Santa’s beard.
Don’t heat for a smooth opaque look
So much fun in a tube of liquid applique!

Liquid glass is my secret ingredient to many wonderful applications. It will hold a torn fingernail, a broken side mirror on the car and enhance a card with equal finesse. My daughters-in-law all have a bottle in their kitchen tool drawer and swear by using it on 4-H, Scout, church & school projects, plus emergency fixes that are still in place a year later. In my opinion, the quality of CTMH liquid glass is top drawer.
The butterfly and flowers tag is adorable (love all your tags) and the liquid glass adds a very special touch of glimmer. Makes cards and other projects extra special! And I agree about using it for all kinds of fixes around the house. Wouldn’t want to be without it!
