Crystal Lacquer is an amazing product - it's only limited to your imagination! For this project, I used
- 3D Crystal Lacquer
- Rectangular Glass Tile from Sakura Hobby Craft
- Fine Clear Glitter
- Silver Adhesive Backed Metal Tape
- Rhinestone Tape
- Scraps of scrapbooking paper
I wrapped silver metal tape around the tile to give a chunkier look and it also looks as if it has a soldered frame around it. Then I used a tiny bead of Crystal Lacquer to adhere a strip of rhinestones around the entire tile. I actually cut up a rhinestone bling frame that I had to get the strip of rhinestones. I let this dry for several hours before continuing on.
Hint: There is a right and wrong side to the tiles. There is a slight texture to the back side -
the side that you are going to adhere an image for it to show through to the front.
I wanted to add a floral accent to the front of the pendant and choose a small violet flower from my stash. I gave it a coat of Crystal Lacquer and sprinkled it with fine glitter while it was still wet and set it aside to dry. I also added a little floral accent to the back of the pendant - just for fun:) It was also given a coat of Crystal Lacquer and glitterd and set aside to dry.
Note: I had put a thin layer of Crystal Lacquer on the entire back before adding the floral accent.
To complete my project - the violet was adhered to the front of the glass tile and I added a silver bail to the back. It was very fun to create and I hope you enjoyed this project!
Till next time - stay creative!
