Making a home for Buster.

We won our goldfish, Buster, at a street fair here in Astoria.  We love him so so much and have become quite attached to this little guy!
To celebrate his 3rd birthday we decorated a bigger bowl for him to move into!

We've been seeing this technique around for a while now and had the idea to try it on the bottom of Buster's bowl!
We used Martha Stewart's glass craft was fairly easy, but the paint dabbed on sloppier than we expected.  We're still pretty happy with the outcome.

First, clean glass surface completely with rubbing alcohol.
Once the glass is dry, start "dotting" using q-tips or pencil erasers.
Let it dry for 48 hours.
To seal the deal, place into a cold oven, turn the temperature to 200 degrees. 
Bake for 30 mins, turn off the oven and let the glass completely cool inside.

Moving day for Buster!
