Picture Frames - Using Diamond Glaze
Diamond Glaze is an amazing product that hardens without heat! Just pour it over an image to make a special and very personal jewelry component.
Print this Technique
Find a picture or design for the frame.
Move the template over the image until you have found the desired picture.
Use a pencil to trace the template over the image.
Cut out the image with an art knife.
Apply a thin coat of an adhesive to the picture frame.
Lay the image into the picture frame. Use the Jewel Setter for easy application.
Let the glue set for a few minutes.
Press the image into the frame making sure that all of the edges are laying flat. Use the other end of the Jewel Setter or your finger.
Before applying the Diamond Glaze, squeeze a little bit onto a scrap piece of paper to release air bubbles.
Fill the picture frame with Diamond Glaze. Completely cover the image in the frame going all the way to the edge of the frame. Do not over fill the frame with glaze.
If bubbles do appear in the glaze, use a small needle or paint brush to pop the bubbles. The bubbles will be harder to pop once the glaze starts to set.
Let the glaze set for 2-3 hours on an even surface. Congratulations! You have created a unique picture frame piece to use in your jewelry designs.
