Helmar's Glue Caddy Deluxe ~

I'm so excited to share with you my Helmar's glue caddy.  It is so sweet to have all your glue, that you work with, in one place and at my finger tips and did I say "ready to go".  It just doesn't get any better than that.


I gave it a coat of acrylic paint and used Helmar Acid Free to attach my paper ~ I then used Helmar Crackle medium to give it that old distressed look.  This stuff is really fabulous!!


My next step was antiquing it with ink or brown acrylic paint.  Rub it on, a small space at a time, then wipe it off. It will go into the cracks and give that old distressed look.


I painted a thin coat of Helmar's Acrlic Sealer over the glue caddy to protect it from the elements of using it on a day to day basis!!  Just want it to stay pretty!!!



This is my completed glue caddy and I do luv my glue!  A special thank you to Tracy's dad affectionately know as glue daddy  ~ you do fabulous work.  If you would like to order a Glue Caddy Deluxe here is the link to Tracy's Esty shop.  Thanks for stopping by today and I will see ya soon!
