Glass tile pendant tutorial

We would like to share an easy to follow glass tile pendant tutorial by Irina who runs GraphicLand shop on Etsy.

How to make glass tile pendant
First of all, you need an image. For example, you can download and use images on this blog. Print images on heavy paper (80-100 lb) on laser printer.

NOTE: Please keep in mind, that the collage sheets can not be sold as a collage in digital or printed form.

To make the pendant, you will need an image, settings for glass tile, glaze, and super glue (it's better to use gel super glue).

You can buy supplies in SunAndMoonKits shop on Etsy. The seller is very nice and responsive. She always open for custom quantity of items. :) If you are planning to make just 1-2 pendants, you probably will need just sample size of glaze - not the big bottle.

So... lets make the pendant :)

First, cut of an image.

Then, apply a little bit of glaze on the back side of the glass tile. Well... maybe not a little bit but more :) So it shouldn't be a very thin layer.

Spread it evenly without air bubbles inside. Place the image with face side on the glaze and gently press it from center to the edges. Be sure, that there is no airy spots between glaze and paper. Also, paper should slide on the glaze when you touch it. It means that right amount of glaze applied. Be sure that edges of the paper are also with no air between glaze and the image.

Set aside the glass tile for a couple of hours while the glaze become firm. Then, just trim extra paper on the sides and remove extra glaze from the glass.
