Photo pendant tutorial
Here are some basic instructions for making pendants:
Clean your glass cabochon
Select or print an image -It is best to use a good quality matte cardstock.
Use a laser printer to print your images or if using an inkjet allow the ink to dry and then coat the image with microglaze to seal it and prevent smearing. Allow the microglaze to dry completely.
Apply a few drops of clear adhesive to the bottom of your glass cabochon - I recommend using Crystal Lacquer as it gets fewer bubbles.
Hold your glass over your image - center it and place it on top of it (if any bubbles occur gently wiggle and press down on your glass to get them out).
Allow to dry a couple of hours, then trim off any excess paper.
Apply a small amount of crystal lacquer to the inside of your pendant tray.
Place your glass inside and center it.
Allow to dry completely - overnight if possible.
