I’ve always been fascinated by crystals, especially those that look like things.
I first encountered them when I was in college, and I’ve been making them since.
So when I got to work with the folks at CrystalCure, I was thrilled to find that the company’s products could be used as motivation to create crystals.
When I asked them if they were interested in creating crystals to promote a specific product, they quickly said yes.
I started researching and found some of the best resources for making crystals, including a number of different tutorials.
So, after several weeks of research and testing, I started to design my own crystals.
I figured I’d share the process so you can follow along if you want to.
What you’ll need: (1) A sheet of paper.
(2) An empty container.
(3) A piece of cotton.
(4) A handful of crystals.
(5) A pen and paper.
I used my fingers to cut a little strip of paper, then I laid it out on my work surface.
I folded the paper into a rectangle, and then I used the back of a piece of scissors to carefully cut a piece that I used as a template.
(You can find more helpful tips for creating crystals here.)
The next step was to lay out the crystals on my paper, but I didn’t want to leave any holes or other small gaps.
I also decided to cut the crystals into strips to create a pattern.
I chose to make four strips of eight, and each strip of eight had four crystals.
Then, I cut out the pattern and made a small hole in each of the four strips.
Then I filled in the gaps with some sort of glue or something to hold the strips together.
I filled each strip with the desired amount of the material I had, then folded them back and glued them together.
(Don’t use glue that’s too thin.)
I also filled the gaps in the pattern, but this time I folded them up again to create three strips.
(The strips should be about 3/4-inch wide.)
The crystals I created were very similar to what I had made earlier, so I decided to name them “Crystal” and “Trees.”
The crystals have a distinctive shape, and they’re easy to cut out.
They also seem to be more durable than the other crystals I’ve tried.
When you cut out your crystals, you can either press them together or use a glue stick to glue them together as you’re cutting.
You can make your crystals by adding a little water to the container, then submerging the container in water.
(If you have to put the water in, you don’t need to worry about it breaking.)
After the crystals are completely dry, you should have four different shapes.
The easiest and most common shape is the “Tropical” crystal, which is made of the same material as the “Plastic” crystal.
I called them “Tepes” because they look like tiny rocks.
But if you can get your hands on some tepes, you’ll be able to make even more beautiful crystals.
In fact, you may be able find more tepos and rocks in your local area.
(Note: if you’re making your own tepoes, you probably don’t have to worry too much about whether you’re able to get them to stick together or not.)
Next, I made four “Snow” crystals.
This is a slightly different shape, made from a slightly lighter material that has been coated with a clear film.
I think that’s the most popular choice, but you could use any clear material you want.
(I think you’ll also be able create snowflake crystals with your own materials if you find a variety of other things that look and feel like snowflakes.)
Next up, I added some of my own personal crystals.
These are made from the same ingredients I used for the “Snow.”
I chose these to be a little more colorful, and so I mixed in some of those tepey rocks and some of that “Tupelo” sand.
The final part was to add a bit of glitter and a little of glitter in a few different colors.
I wanted the glitter to have some sparkle, and the glitter would help to keep the crystals from being too glittery.
(Glitter is usually more of a deterrent than a catalyst.)
The glitter and glitter mixed together should give the crystals a lovely, sparkly appearance.
The “Trap” crystal was made from two of my favorite colors, green and red.
I found a few tutorials online about making traps, so the trick here was to combine some of these colors.
(For example, I mixed some red, green, and blue together, and that turned into a lovely purple-orange-yellow trap.
You could also try using the same colors as the other two colors, but instead of combining them, I used just a few of the colors.) To add a
