Rose Bowls for Bath and Office Containers
I cleaned my old rose bowls with soap and water and then added gold or silver leaf. I glued hemp string along the top for more flare.
Approximate Time: 1 hour
low temp glue sticks and gun
gold/silver leafing sheets
Wash the old rose bowl and dry very well.
Use a low temp glue gun to draw designs on the outside of the glass.
Use spray glue over the whole outside when hot glue sets up, to get some of the wider spots sticky. Then the sheets will fill it in.
Once the glue is cool, lay sheets of gold or silver gold leaf sheets. Press with your finger where you'd like the gold or silver.
Remove gently and you'll have the glue covered with color.
Add the string to the top and you are ready to go.

What is a "rose bowl"? In California it refers to a football game that happens in Southern California near the beginning of the year after a big parade. Please clarify what you mean and tell us where to get "rose bowls."
