This coffee jar has been sitting on my kitchen shelf for ages, and suddenly I noticed that it has a beautiful glass lid which is hollow inside - just perfect for pouring resin into.
So, as soon as I've created a quilled motif to fit inside it, I will be 'casting' this as a paperweight too. The main difference will be that the resin will stay permanently inside the glass instead of being 'turned out' of a mould. The top of the coffee jar lid will become the base of the paperweight.
As I go round the supermarket this afternoon, I'll be looking for other interesting shaped jars and containers that could be used in this way - there's so much potential here!
Oh, and before I forget ... welcome to my blog, Nagela! I am very happy and honoured to have you as a Follower.
