DIY Faux Milk Glass


Milk glass, also called opal glass, is an opaque milky white glass that is very popular in home decorating. Milk glass is beautiful, highly collectible and very expensive, but you can make your own version using just a few inexpensive items.

Look around your home for cheap vases, bottles, mason jars or any glass objects that has a shape and size that appeals to you. You can make DIY faux milk glass out of vases, but you can also paint any other glass object.
Mlečno staklo, poznato i kao opalno staklo je mlečno belo staklo koje je veoma popularno u kućnoj dekoraciji. Zbog svoje lepote često ga kolekcioniraju, ali kako je uglavnom vrlo skupo, može se napraviti u sopstvenoj verziji uz svega nekoliko jeftinih stvari.
Potražite po kući jeftine vaze, flaše, tegle ili druge staklene objekte čiji vam se oblik dopada. Možete napraviti lažno mlečno staklo od vaza, ali i od staklenih figura, kutija, lampi, nakita ili bilo kog drugog staklenog predmeta.
To make the hobnails on the glass (you don`t have to) you need a hot glue gun. When I started making my hobnails it was a little tricky to achieve the desired shape, but I quickly realized that the was best way is to make a small drop of glue on the glass and rotate the gun in circles to hold the shape. It is necessary to wait a few seconds for the glue to harden, otherwise your hobnail will turn into a tear shape (I learned the hard way). In any case, don`t be afraid to try because you can easily remove the failed hobnails and do it again.

Da biste napravili ukras na staklu (kao ja) potrebna vam je tzv. craft puffy paint ili pištolj za vruće lepljenje, koji sam ja koristila. Kada sam tek počela da pravim kružiće nije mi baš pošlo za rukom odmah da ih napravim, ali uz malo vežbe sam shvatila da je najbolji princip da se kapne mala kap lepka na staklo a potom da se prave kružni pokreti pištoljem da bi se zadržao željeni oblik. Neophodno je sačekati par sekundi da se kapljica lepka stvrdne i ohladi inače će se razliti i izgubiti oblik (to sam naučila na sopstvenim greškama). U svakom slučaju ne treba se plašiti neuspeha jer loše kapljice je lako ukloniti i pokušati ponovo.
Materials:
Cheap clear vases, glasses, bottles, mason jars... 
Hot glue gun 
White glossy spray paint 

Materijal: 
Jeftine vaze, čaše, flaše, tegle... 
Pištolj za vruće lepljenje 
Bela boja u spreju (sjajna) 

Tutorial:
Clean the glass thoroughly, and rub the surface with rubbing alcohol. The paint will stick better when the glass is clean. Find a well ventilated area, preferably outside (I do it on my balcony), and set your glass objects upside down.Spray paint in light, even strokes. Don’t worry if it’s a little uneven after the first coat. Too much paint, and you’ll get ugly drippage.
Let the glass dry for at least an hour, then cover in a second coat. Dry, turn the glass objects right side up and even out paint. Lightly spray the inner rim of the glass to make it perfect. Let dry and enjoy your DIY!
Have you ever tried to make your own faux milk glass? I just had to make my own to see how it really would look. I love them; What do you think?

Tutorijal:
Dobro oprati staklo i obrisati alkoholom jer će se boja bolje zalepiti za čisto staklo. 
Prskanje sprejem je najbolje obaviti napolju (ja koristim balkon jer nemam dvorište). Staklene predmete okrenuti naopako i prskati lakim, ujednačenim pokretima sa udaljenosti od 20-tak cm. Neka vas ne brine ako se pokrivenost ne postigne u prvom sloju. Ako se prska previše stvoriće se neželjeni, "slivajući" tragovi.
Ostaviti bolju da se sušu oko sat vremena i pokriti drugim slojem boje.
Kada se on osuši, okrenuti staklo u pravom smeru i lagano isprskati ivice stakla da bi sve delovalo savršeno.
Ostaviti da se osuši kompletno i možete da uživate u svom "uradi sam" projektu.

Da li ste nekada probali da napravite lažno mlečno staklo? Ja sam morala da probam i da vidim kako će izgledati. Meni se dopada, šta vi mislite?

  1. Samo da znaš da već dugo vremena hoću da pokušam frost na staklu, imam dosta tih starinjskih i jeftinih staklenih stvarčića i teglica od dečije hrane koje mi je skupljala komšinica a da joj nisam ni tražila :-) ali ovo je ubedljivo lakše :-) i odlično izgleda. Samo nikad nisam radila sa sprejem, koji bi mi preporučila? Zaista izgleda fantastično!!!! Pozdrav, Ivana

    1. Hvala draga. Koristila sam običan sprej iz farbare, ništa specijalno. Postoji više metoda za mlečno staklo, jedna od metoda koja mi se dopala je i bojenje unutrašnjosti posude običnom belom akrilnom bojom. Boja se jednostavno sipa unutra i posuda okreće dok sve ne bude pokrivenoo bojom, a onda ostavi naopako da se ocedi višak boje. Naravno, unutra sene sme sipati voda (ako je vaza za cveće), služi samo u dekorativne svrhe.
