You can create beautiful pins that look like porcelain. They're great to wear, trade with friends, or give as gifts. The thick, clear, glossy finish adds a professional, finished look to the piece. You can also use these same techniques to make refrigerator magnets or earrings. A quick and easy project that's fun for the whole family.
- Stamp the image on card stock Color the image with markers or pens and let dry.
- Cut out the colored image. Lay on waxed paper with the colored side up. Thoroughly mix 2 oz. of Envirotex Lite® and apply with a brush. (Optional: Glitter can be added to the Envirotex Lite® mixture prior to applying if you want to add a little sparkle to your pin.)
- Allow to dry thoroughly. Trim off any excess finish with scissors. Touch up the cut edges with markers or pens.
- Position the pin backs and glue on. (Optional: Embellish the finished pin with cords, ribbons, buttons or charms.)
