Do not use ink jet prints or water color images. The color will bleed.
Thin layers of adhesive work best.
You will need an image, a pendant, a corresponding paper punch or scissors, glue and a paint brush.
You will then need to choose your dimensional glaze. Read through the instructions carefully to see which finish you would prefer.
Choose your image. Punch out the image with the corresponding paper punch.
Paint a thin layer of glue into the back of the bezel pendant.
Place the image carefully into the bezel pendant. Press the image down into the pendant.
Let the glue dry completely (this should take 5 minutes). Choose your finish.
Before filing your bezel pendant, use a scrap of paper to pour out a little of the dimensional glaze in order to remove trapped air bubbles.
Carefully fill the bezel pendant with dimensional glaze. Completely cover the image in the pendant going all the way to the edge of the pendant. Do not over fill the bezel pendant with glaze.
Tilt the bezel pendant to ensure the entire image surface is covered with dimensional adhesive.
Check for air bubbles. Remove bubbles with a pin.
Set the bezel pendant aside on a level surface to dry. This could take up to twelve hours. The dimensional adhesive will be shiny and clear once it is completely dry.
Congratulations! You have a made a beautiful personalized bezel pendant using a dimensional adhesive.
