Glow

Glow Jars
My friend Margie gave me another great idea for displaying art on jars...
I printed my illustrations on tracing paper with my ink jet printer
and wrapped some jars with votives inside them. Instant lanterns!
You could also draw directly onto the vellum with markers.
I'm going to have to tell Daniel to try that! He does wonders with his markers...

Totally random question, but where did you get the cabinet/drawers the lanterns are sitting on?

I thought it was a good idea until I learned that vellum paper is made from dead baby cows and goats. No thanks!

Thank you so much :)

@Amber: It's actually tracing paper which is made like regular paper...from pulp.

Geninne, there is this amazing vellum-like product I got that you can even heat. You can make the votive covers and then apply this embellishing powder, heat with a heat gun and it looks like stained glass. The lady calls it Sheer Heaven. You can find it on google. It comes in huge sheets for bigger projects. Right up your ally. oooh I can just see it, covered in birds!!!! Love your work...

Rats! It looks like you can only get it (sheer heaven) in 8x11 size now...sorry for the missinformation...

Margie was right - with the candles inside them it is like they are alive. Carolina

Great idea! You can also mount the printed tissue paper directly onto candles (white tissue paper and whit candles would work best) and then use a hair dryer to carefully warm up the candle surface to make the un-printed (white) portions of the paper disappear.
