As much as I love them clear, I sometimes wish I could change their color without making them opaque. So I googled it and lo and behold you can change the color and still have it been translucent.
Some of you may know this little trick, but I did not and I wanted everyone to know about it.
How to take a crystal knob from this.
With only this.
Just go over the whole thing with the marker and viola. Instant color change.
This would work with anything crystal even jewelry. How cool is that?
I bought 3 clear crystal knobs from Hobby Lobby for an upcoming project that I wanted to be red. Here they are after the sharpie treatment.
I just love this idea. It is by far the coolest thing I have learned how to do on the internet. How did we learn anything before the internet?
