Three New Pendants Altered Art Dominos


About this design:

These are three new pendants all done with the same process but not yet strung - I am still thinking about what beads to use or maybe even just colored ball chain. I love the colors. People are always stopping me for a closer look - they can't believe they are dominos.

Components:

All 3 pendants are made with color graphics on a domino layered with UV resin, alcohol inks, and diamond glaze on the sides and back. I added a dangle to each one.

    To CarolSmithJewelry – I alcohol ink a domino in colors that will pick up the color in the graphic I use. I purchase the graphic in 1×2 from different sellers on Etsy. I use ModPodge to seal them to the domino. Then I layer on UV resin and place under a UV light source for at least 20 minutes. Not hard – just time consuming with lots of layer drying times in between stages. Hope this helps.

    MoonBell – thanks for the comment and what a great idea. If I can find enough graphics in the right size I will work on that. MoonBell gets the credit for a great idea!!!!
