My Best Homemade Eclipse Glasses

2017_08_19_ECLIPSE_GLASSES

Okay, I stepped things up a notch. These are my new solar eclipse viewing glasses using the tried and true soot on glass technique of days gone by. I made these using a neighbor’s old glass lenses. Actually, when I am done, I’m pretty sure they will clean up perfect…not that I would ever wear them (they are pretty big). And, this video tutorial is only 40 seconds long. Enjoy!

A Melted Crayon Rose :)

I’m happy with how this one turned out. It looks Victorian. This time, I didn’t use a microwave. Instead, I used a heat gun in the this video tutorial because my microwave is rather small. The art may not have fit inside – especially with the rotating tray in action.
