For my first batch, and very carefully, I smashed a very light green bottle and a clear bottle to do my sea glass experiment with.
|Harbour Freight 3 lb rock tumbler.|
|Fill tumbler half full of broken glass. Be Careful! Sharp! Then add 1/2 cup of beach sand, and fill with water to almost cover glass. Add a couple of marble sized rocks. Put the cover on the tumbler tightly, and tumble for 2 days.|
|Here is my first batch. It'll be fun to make some Sea Glass jewelery with the kids this summer. Maybe at Grammie Camp.|
Isn't it beautiful, and look how nice it'll be when put with a silver chain and maybe a pearl or two.
Oh, I'm hooked now. I can't wait to find some colored glass. I have my next batch on already. Brown glass and thicker light green glass. I can't wait to see it. My friend has a blue wine bottle for me. I'm so anxious to get it for my third batch. I'll be searching this week for a red or purple, or another color bottle to put with it.
