Faux dichro effect ~ flood/float a substantial amount of dark colored nail polish on the top surface of our 302F or 302G glass tiles. Drop (one drop at a time) ~  glitter nail polish on top while the dark base is still fully wet. Experiment! Seal with clear coat nail polish or Krylon Gloss spray when dry. Let dry fully.   We have 302F-20pc SECONDS quality glass tiles which are perfect for this project as the TOP of the glass is being fully covered – find our 20pc glass tile SECONDS here:

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 lots of glass tile shapes you can find here!


We also have 2nd 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.
