21st May 2012: Glasses - Attempt 1 I attempted to make the glasses this weekend. They worked alright, the lenses kept falling out and I kept having to super glue them back. They're looking a little tacky from all the glue so I think I'm going to start over. Super glue does not work, use hot glue!
How to to make them:
1 pair of cheap sunglasses (or reading glasses) from the Dollar Store
1 pack of translucent binder separators, they come in red, blue, green, orange, foggy white, and grey. My friend Kayla suggested this so thanks to her!
If the glasses are not silver (mine were a gold colour) then make sure to paint them, my dad used this weird appoxy paint that worked really well. Nail-polish and Acrylic pain works too!
When you're finished with getting everything together, then take the lens out of the glasses (or you can leave them in if they don't give you a headache) and paint the frame (if needed)
After they dry, take the original lens you popped out and set it down on the binder separators, trace around it and cut them out. Do two of them if you want to the colour to be thick and nice looking.
After you cut them out, use hot glue to glue them to the frames.
After they dry they should be ready to wear!
Make sure you're careful with them, especially if they're from the Dollar Store.
