Here is what I used:
- Elmers white craft glue (Glue-all)
- Green food coloring
I poured a small bit of glue in a cup(see photo below on how much/little glue I used) and put a few drops of the coloring.Then I started to paint on it. It looked messy and uneven. There were some blobs forming on the candlestick so I had to keep touching up with the glue paint. We left and went to church and by the time I came back, it was too late to see the actual effect. The next morning when I woke up, I saw it really did work! The candlestick did have a see through painted look!
Now,please note that I have not wet it since but I am sure that this is for decorative use only since the "paint" may come off. Maybe some kind of sealer will hold the "paint".
And I am still working on this organizer and will be blogging in the near future about this project.
