Hot Glue Beads

My glue gun is ALWAYS ready to go...ALWAYS!  I may need to start wearing a holster with a very long extension cord soon.  Lately I've been obsessed with lampwork beads but, if you follow me, you know I'm not a huge fan of working with molten glass.  Molten hot glue is a totally different story. Turns out a messy glob of glue covered in glitter on my work table was just the inspiration I needed to conjure up these shimmery faux glass beads.   Adding a coat of clear varnish when they were all done made them even more glasslike, too!  I tried using paint on the inside, but it didn't dry as quickly as the Marabu Alcohol Inks, so I stuck with those for color.  The inks work perfectly!  Experiment like a madman, my creative friends, and don't forget to Make Your Mark!
 A little fine glitter makes everything better!
 Gold spacers work beautifully with these beads!
I LOVE my Surebonder glue gun!
