We love this idea! We’ve all been experimenting with nail polish on glass tiles but our amazing Becky (let’s hear it for the art majors!) really got the technique down when she flooded the surface with/floated a thick layer of very dark grey or black nail polish onto our 303G or 302F glass tiles, followed immediately by dropping glittered nail polish onto the wet base coat.
We have 302F-20pc SECONDS quality glass tiles which are perfect for this project as you are covering the TOP of the glass – find our 20pc glass tile SECONDS here: http://www.ecrafty.com/p-3866-20-seconds-glass-craft-tiles-clear-squares-1-25mm-diy-jewelry-fridge-magnets.aspx
The result? Pretty close to dichroic! Anne (art major wanna be) embellished more, (but of course!) adding some cupcake decorating techniques by dragging a pin head through the floating polish for swirls and feather patterns.
Add a glue-on bail to the back, perhaps seal the front with clear nail polish or Krylon matte or gloss spray varnish, and you’ve got a ready to wear art glass pendant.
Take these finished tiles and e6000 the backs into our square or round pendant bases for a cool finished pendant.
