I finally managed to get a couple of projects done for myself the past week. Since I've started blogging, I have a new appreciation for the work it takes to maintain a blog. Sure I could just post something new everyday and leave it at that but I'm too much of a perfectionist. I want to make this 'hobby' the best it can be. All of my behind the scenes work has been taking a lot of time but I feel like it's on the way.
I was excited about this 'pin' for a couple of reasons:
3. Super Cute
Washers (any size)
Mod Podge Dimensional Magic (there are other brands too)
Necklace (sky's the limit...I used leather)
Nail File or Emory Board
1. Pick out your favorite paper of choice.
2. Spray mount the back of the washer and lay it on the reverse side of your paper.
3. With your palm or roller press out any bubbles.
4. Once the glue has dried, use your Exacto knife to cut out the washer and the center hole.
5. If you have any rough edges, take a nail file and gently file the edges to smooth them out.
6. The next step is to apply the Mod Podge Dimensional Magic. Follow the bottle's instructions and add the glaze to the washers.
|Make sure to keep the bottle down so you reduce the amount of bubbles.|
|You can use the exacto knife to push any bubbles to the edges.|
7. I would wait 24 hours before handling the pendant. The epoxy can stay soft and will show finger prints.
8. When the glaze dries, you can start making jewelary with it. I decided to loop around a leather necklace and let it hang low.
