Glass Block Light Question

toomuchglassMay 30, 2009

I'm getting an early start this year . I'd love to know where people find the pretty prints that they decoupage on the glass block . I'm sure the prints are on thin paper to let the light shine through. I hope it's not from a printer ..... my printer is too fussy on what it will print. Any ideas ? Thank You !! :)

Thanks. The glass blocks I have used have a smooth surface. I print my images on label paper, so there is already a sticky backing on them. I have also put my images through my Xyron machine to put adhesive on the back. I suppose you could also use decoupage or a spray adhesive.

I got this from the lady that makes the beautiful glass blocks...

Pretty Christmas fabric could be decopagued(sp) on also. I also just put the colored mini lights in and wrapped with Christmas wired ribbon as if it were a package... East and you can embellish the bow with Christmas picks...

Here's a picture of the 1st one I made. I got this picture off one of my old calenders. Scanned it, printed it on label paper and sprayed it several times with sealer, the stuck it on the block. I made several others as gifts, using old family photos. I really don't like the "seasonal" pictures and would rather do something that can be used year 'round.
