Some time ago I posted a fall harvest. . It has a crate of grapes at the side yard and I wanted you to know how I make grapes. Lots of people use polymer clay - I don't have nearly enough patience to do that. I will show you a great way that is quick, easy and cheap.
Here is what you need for grapes:
You will need a good glue (Tacky works great), dried grape stems, glass paint (remember grapes are white, red, blue, purple, black). The paint I used was Gallery Glass window color in Berry Red by Plaid. This paint is translucent and makes for the real grape look. Oh yes - you need the grape - it's mustard seeds. Look in the spice section and fine whole mustard seed.
Put a little glue and a pile of mustard seeds in a container. A tablespoon of mustard seeds will make a lot of grapes. At the top of the picture is one little piece of dried grape stem covered in glue.
Roll the glue covered stem in mustard seeds and let dry. LET DRY!!! You can also clump at the end of a toothpick if you are making lots of grape bunches to pile in a basket.
Put two coats of gallery glass on them. Arrange in crate, tray, etc.
I hope you enjoyed the easy way to make grapes. If you were following from last year, but if you're new, you might enjoy the tip. If you haven't tried it from last year, now's the time.
