Accent Gems [glass blobs]
decorative paper of your choice [two side is not necessary.
22 guage wire and rosary pliers
Sakura Hobby Crafts 3D Crystal Lacquer
a tin [I upcycled a BB container]
accent beads to match your paper [I made my own]
|I adhered the glass blobs to my paper using Sakura 3D Crystal Lacquer.|
|I trimmed the glass blobs out of the paper|
|I fashioned a figure 8 out of wire using rosary pliers|
|I attached the figure 8 to the back of the marble with E-6000|
for extra strong hold.
|I then added a coordinating piece of paper to the back of the|
blob--pre-trimming where the paper lined up with the finding.
|I then trimmed the remaining paper from the blob. lightly|
sanded the edges and applied Crystal Lacquer to the back.
|To make the rings for the charms, I wrapped wire around a form|
that would be perfect for the glass stems [a nail polish top]
|I used my rosary pliers again to make a hook and loop--if|
you plan to use small beads to decorate, you need to add them
now before making both ends so that they can easily slide on.
|I pre-cut a matching paper to fit the lid of the tin. Attach|
to tin with Crystal Lacquer.
|I coated the lid with more Crystal Lacquer to have a snazzy tin|
to house the drink charms.
|I made paper beads to match using the technique I showed |
you in my last post. This time I used my ½" bead template
to create the beads. I have made it available for you to
download, as well as a ¾" bead template.
|Now, attach to your stemware to indicate|
which glass is yours!
|This works for mugs too!|
