This latest necklace from Cheryl uses our paddle style head pins to make a fun fringe pendant. This reminds me of the very popular safety pin jewelry technique – specifically the lapel pins made from safety pins.
This basic design is so easy to customize – you could incorporate team colors, patterns, or ….?  It’s up to you! I love this idea!

Cheryl used just a few items from eCrafty.com.  She threaded seed beads SKU 413F and small bicone beads SKU 1181-MEGA onto our paddle head pins SKU 1606D making a loop at the top.  The then made a head pin into a eye pin and strung the beaded head pins onto it with spacer beads between the looped ends.  Cheryl choose to hang her fringe pendant from two snake chains SKU 1414E-10PACK to make an extra long “lariat” length necklace.

DIY Glass Tile Image Transfers with Nail Polish Recipe from eCrafty.com

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Anne has been up to all good, again! Inspired while watching her daughter paint her nails with a newsprint transfer technique, she came up with this easy method for transferring any newsprint image to our glass tiles. We might have to resubscribe to the paper edition of our newspaper again – this is too much fun!

These images were transferred onto our glass tiles with nail polish and rubbing alcohol. You can create multi layers with this technique too! Read our blog post for the recipe and visit us at www.eCrafty.com for glass tiles, sealers, craft supplies!

If you are working with clear nail polish – you can make mutiple clear layers for collages and add depth – similar to glass painting, layers are applied foreground first, then apply secondary or background layers.

For instance, in the purple tile sample above, the cartoon dog image was applied to the back of the tile first, followed by a second layer of text, both clear.

Anne colorized her finished clear pieces with a back coating of nail polish.

These finished tiles can be transformed into jewelry instantly by inserting the finished tile into our tray pendants and bezel bases with our double sided clear adhesive film 800P, or a dab of e-6000 clear adhesive.

DIY Nail Polish Glass Tile Image Transfer Recipe from eCrafty.com

  • Coat one side of clear glass tile or cabochon dome with clear nail polish.
  • Let dry completely.
  • Thoroughly wet your piece of newspaper art/text in rubbing alcohol.
  • Press wet newspaper against the nail polish on the glass tile for 15 to 20 seconds.
  • Peel the paper off. The image should stay on the nail polish.
  • Let dry completely before applying colored (or clear) nail polish to the back if desired.

In the second sample below, Anne chose faces from the Sunday funnies and other newsprint illustrations to transfer line drawings directly onto the glass. How cool is this, anyway? :-)

These images were transferred onto our glass tiles with nail polish and rubbing alcohol. You can create multi layers with this technique too! Read our blog post for the recipe and visit us at www.eCrafty.com for glass tiles, sealers, craft supplies!

These were cut from manga comics and adhered to our glass tiles using our 800P double sided craft adhesive sheet. One of the images was applied to the back of the tile and one was applied to the front. Then they were sealed with clear nail polish.
