Project:: Scrabble Tile Bracelet

8:17 PM Posted In , , , , , , Edit This 1 Comment »


Ingredients:
  • 7 scrabble tiles
  • 7 various pictures/images of one theme (I used vintage portraits of women in this project)
  • Scrabble tile template
  • 22 open jump rings
  • Lobster clasp
  • Glossy Accents (or similar)
  • Pearl Ex Pigmants
  • Tacky Glue (or similar)
Tools of the Trade:
  • Drill and small bit 
  • Needlenose pliers
  • Paintbrush
  • Pallet (or other non-porous dish)
Procedure
  • Drill two holes in each of the scrabble tiles according to the directions in the tutorial
  • Select your images and cut them out using the template.
  • Glue them onto the tiles, allowing them to dry.
  • Coat the images with a thin layer of lightly watered glue, or other sealant. 
  • Apply pearl ex pigments for extra detail, if you wish. For this project, I left the images as they were.
  • You may also apply pearl ex pigments or acrylic paint to the sides and back. Again, I left the tiles as they were.
  • Coat each side with Glossy Accents (or similar) Make sure you allow the side to completely dry before turning or touching - - I learned the hard way. :-/
  • Once the tiles are completely dry, put a jump ring in each hole. This may be a bit tricky, depending on how close you were able to drill the holes to the edge. Link each tile with a jump ring. Add the lobster clasp and an extra jump ring on the end to complete the clasp. 
  • Voila!
