  • Colorful Glass Paper Pendants Tutorial | Art Of Crafts
    It doesn t need to be perfect but try to angle the pencil as necessary to trace around the base of the cabochon as much as possible not just the sides which will be wider because of the tapered edges Then cut out the shape you drew on the paper using your scissors Squeeze out a very small amount of the Mod Podge Dimensional Magic onto the back of the glass gem in the middle it doesn t take much at all you just need to cover the surface in a thin layer DO NOT SHAKE the bottle you ll get way too many air bubbles Spread the liquid out using a toothpick as evenly as possible all the way to the edges You will also want to use the toothpick to pop any little air bubbles that may appear Flip the cabochon over and place it on top of your piece of paper which is pattern side up Turn it over and adjust the position of the paper if needed Use a toothpick like a mini rolling pin to press the paper down evenly and squeeze out any excess glue Wipe away the extra glue that does squeeze out around the edges using a paper towel Leave the cabochon to dry for 20 minutes Wash the sticky glue off your hands in the meantime Next dab a small bit of E6000 onto the gripping surface of your bail I m using a bail that I made here s my DIY Glue On Bail Tutorial video but there are tons of great options available for purchase Use a toothpick to spread it out evenly before applying it to the back of your cabochon Be sure to check the position before pressing it firmly in place Hold pressure against the bail for about 20 30 seconds to get a good bond with the back of the cabochon Use a toothpick to remove any excess glue from around the bail Leave the adhesive to cure for about 20 minutes Wash your hands again that stuff is messy When the adhesive has dried use some more Dimensional Magic to seal around the edges of the paper and the edges of the bail Use the toothpick to spread it out over the entire surface of the paper You can use a bit more liquid this time and you ll see that it will stay where you put it and dry 3 dimensionally leaving a nice clear glaze over the back of your piece which makes it blend in nicely with the glass Leave the pendant facing down on a level surface for at least one hour If you d like to apply another coat of Dimensional Magic do so in the same manner as before but make sure you leave it another hour afterwards Now your finishing touch is to clean up all the glue residue on the glass so your pendants will shine Using a cotton bud Q tip dipped in acetone carefully
