Hi friends sharing yet another Sospeso Transparente floral project. This time with "Ice crystals" technique!

Made a Christmas themed lantern with Sospeso Transparente flowers. You can read about the Italian craft of Sospeso Transparente here : Sospeso Transparente Bouquet tutorial 
Sospeso Transparente techniques
Sospeso Transparente 
To run you through how I made the Sospeso Transparente flowers : my  flowers started off as flat designs on a special plastic sheet. They were cut , heated and embossed to create 3 dimensional Sospeso Transparente flowers

Used hot glue to stack some of the flowers together.

Inked the edges of the flower petals using red permanent markers and glass paint[ if you are using glass paint use a thin paint brush]

Achieved the Ice crystal Effect by mixing  equal amounts of Vetrification gel and Ground crystal glass [invented by Sospeso Transparente inventor Monica Allegro] in a plastic dish and applying it over my Sospeso Transparente flowers.

The toughest part is that you have to be really patient and not touch or move the flowers as they dry or the crystals will fall off !! [Best left overnight so that you are not tempted to poke them!]

You can completely cover your flowers and leaves or just give a splattering of ice crystals

I added my Sospeso Transparente flowers to a hanging lantern whose base is removable to fit in an LED light.

You can make your own  centers for your Sospeso Transparente flowers like I did in the Sospeso Transparente tutorial  or add pollen like the ones here

Rested for a few days and now trying to play catch up. I'm trying to leave a comment on everyone's last post today and then over the next couple of day will visit and catch up all the post I have missed.
