Pour UTEE over the top of the glass. When it has melted, use the tweezers to remove it from the melting pot onto the non-stick surface. Quickly place your picture face-down into the warm UTEE side of the seaglass. Gently rub it into the UTEE. (I used a brayer.)
Wait 5-10 minutes for the piece to cool. Then use water and lightly rub off the picture/image until all of the paper has been removed. It should leave a lovely, transparent image in your glass.
Next, place the piece picture side up back in the melting pot. Add UTEE to the top again and let it melt. This will give the seaglass picture some depth, and it helps to make it more transparent. After it has melted, use tweezers to remove the glass, and put it on the non-stick craft sheet.
Here is my piece:
And a big thank you to my pal, Angela, http://angelabelfastgirl.blogspot.com/ who, when I suggested this, told me (being slightly unsure) to go for it (and is the source of all melting pot knowledge!) :0) Angela has a special guest project for you on the 28th August, too. xxxxxxxx Joy

We love this canvas created by 4 year old Josh Gowdy. Mum, Paula, said *I gave him a canvas, paint, photo of him and his brother and free reign of my stash to keep him occupied while I scrapped and this is what he came up with. It made it even more special when he declared he had made it for his baby brother Dylan's nursery wall!*.

Here is one she made earlier, lol. It's my winter 'lying on the couch watching TV all wrapped up' blanket and I wouldn't be without it! I love it and I plan to have it forever and hopefully one day it will be passed down a generation.
Last Thursday was 1st lesson day and mum and I started slowly, and we crocheted together, side by side and went at the same pace so I could ask questions if I got stuck. We each made 9 squares and put them together so I could see the whole process from start to finish. Mine is the purple 'blanket' :) (It's a bit bigger and looser cause I used a 5mm hook)
You will make approximately 27 squares from one 100gm ball of wool.
Start crocheting from the inside end of the wool
