First: Gather your supplies. You will need:
- Metal Washers (I used 1.5 inch ones)
- Scrapbook paper
- Exacto Knife
- Pour-On High Gloss Finish
- Plastic Cup and Spoon
- Chain for your necklace
Second: Glue your washers to the back of your scrapbook paper.
Third: When the glue is dry, cut out your washers with your exacto knife.
Fourth: File down the edges to get a complete circle.
They also look much nicer when you do this.
Here are mine all glued and sanded and ready for gloss.
I use EnviroTex Lite Pour-On.
Fifth: Add even amounts of hardener and shine from both bottles
and mix well in a plastic cup.
When I say "Mix Well" I mean mix your little heart out
for 2 minutes without stopping.
The mixture will be a frothy white with TONS of bubbles - It's okay!
Sixth: Scoop out a little bit with your spoon and evenly
make a circle with the glaze over the top of your washer.
Seventh: You will notice little bubbles forming on the top of the glaze,
simply exhale slowly on them and your warm breath will get rid of them
- Be Careful not to inhale too many fumes!
I put mine on some blocks of wood so the extra glaze would run off through the middle hole - if there was any. The glaze is pretty thick so there shouldn't be too much run-off - but sometimes you get one that wants to be difficult!
Eighth: Let them dry for a day or two.
Ninth: Add your chain or leather or ribbon.
Tenth: Wear em' and show em' off!
