Everybody uses this little glas nuggets to make cool decorational stuff. I love them (and it is years ago sinced I made my own ones)! So I was infected again and I made some with writings. I found some clear and light blue glas nuggets (I found more but the rest was not transparent enough to see something through the glas).
I just put the glas nuggets on a printed script, marked the shape around the glas nuggets, cut the paper piece out and glued it under the nugget (I used a transparent gemstone glue pen which was really cheap ^^). Afterwards I added a layer of white acrylic paint and that was it.
I love this magnifying glass effect especially on this non readable old script ^^
Beside the old script I printed some writings in a bigger size and searched for some word I liked in it to put them in the center and therefore "magnify" them. The basic (if you are curious) is Goethes "Faust II" in german.
Phöbus´ Räder - Phoebus´ wheels
Mondes - of the moon
Stern an (Stern) - Star at (star)
Funken - spark
I think the little flaws in the glas make a special effect :)
Together with some more :)
Dämmerung - dwan / twilight
Erdgeboren - earth born (earthlings in the english translation I found)
Elfen - Elves
The can be put on magnets, on card, on gifts or collages... or just be used as they are. I like to make some with a special meaning for other persons.
