Domino, Scrabble and Other Game Piece Pendants

 Pendants Made with Game Pieces
Domino's, Scrabble Tiles, and Rummy Cubes

I am in the process stage of finishing these pendants..  I will give you 
my steps up to this point...
Note I have added two finished pendants of a cat and a lady silhouette cameo.

Game pieces (Domino's, Scrabble's, Rummy)
Ink print photos, art etc (I received these pictures in this post from a friend)
E6000 glue
Mod Podge
Dimensional Magic Mod Podge
Beads (round for bails)
Eye Screws
Dremel Drill with a 1/16" drill bit


I take my drill and drill the holes where necessary for hanging future beads or
holes in the top of the game piece for the eye screw.
Take your picture the size of the game piece and mod podge it on, making sure
the ink print is secure.. Let this dry completely.
You can put on your bails with the E600 glue.. 
Now you can use the Dimensional Magic...start around the edge of the piece and move to
the center until completely covered.. If you see bubbles, take a needle and move the bubbles to the edge until they disappear.. Let the pieces dry overnight...
When they are completely dry you can add your string or chain..
Hemp string works great for small holes.. You can also take jump rings and
add additional charms or beads on the end..  
I used a brown ink pad and darkened around the edges of the print.
