What you’ll need:
Scrabble game tile
Glue on bail
Glaze (I use polycrylic)
Trace your tile using your pencil to outline your drawing space on your paper.
Create your art in any medium in your outlined square. Go crazy – this is the best part!
Cut around your design with your scissors. Use the same Scrabble tile you traced from to carefully trim each side to fit on top of the tile with no overlap.
Paint the sides of the tile with acrylic paint to match to your design. Do as many coats as you want - for mine, I layered blue acrylic paint and glitter... 'cause who doesn't like sparkles?
Seal sides of pendant with the polycrylic glaze. This may take 2 coats to reach the level of shine you want. Let your glaze dry completely because you will need to touch the sides of your pendant for the next steps.
Put a drop of tacky glue on the blank side of the pendant and use your paintbrush to evenly spread the glue over the surface.
Carefully position your trimmed design on the glue and press tight to remove any air bubbles. Make sure your letter is right side up on the back.
Ready your epoxy lens and very carefully position over your design. You only get one chance to get it straight, so take your time!
Press your lens tight to remove all gaps and air bubbles.
Use your jewelry cement (or something like DiamondGlaze) and put a small drop near the top of the letter side of your Scrabble tile.
Enjoy your new art pendant! You can string it on organza ribbon, ball chain, or snake chain - really anything you want.
Now, this pendant has already sold, but if you want something like it, I do custom pendants, too! Just message me with what you would like!
Have fun creating and let me know how you do!
