supplies:

  • colored wine bottles
  • various size flour sifters
  • picture patterns
  • In-Sink-Erator disposer
  • soluable glue
  • old picture frame with glass

Instructions:

  1. Find a working electric sink food waste disposer, a table to work on and start crushing glass bottles. Crush one color at a time and keep separate.
  2. Using several different size flour sifters, sift the crushed glass into granule sizes from small pea size down to facepowder size. These four or five sizes will be of different hues, for example, dark brown bottles when crushed will range from dark brown large granules to a light fawn beige facepowder size. The same applies to the other colors. Clear bottles when crushed become very white granules.
  3. Next, locate a good size picture frame with an unbroken sheet of glass that fits the frame. Place the glass over your paper pattern that you can purchase from any stained glass stores.

  5. Lay down your crushed glass on the sheet of glass as per pattern and colors that you wish to use and then apply your glue with a turkey baster to the crushed glass, which will be soaked up almost instantly.
  6. Allow the glass to dry, usually eight hours.
  7. Put the glass picture into your frame and hang it on a wall, or sell it.

These are awesome! Did you use an old sink waste disposal?

How do you get the glass out of the disposal? Also, could an apoxy be applied to these and used as stepping stones?

The crushed glass can also be used in tropical garden vases as shown in these pictures.

Love the pictures. What a great way to use up colored glass. Would like to find another way to crush the glass if that is possible.

I would also try this with the tiny bead you can buy in craft stores.
