Pendants are very popular and lots of artists that work with glass, ceramics or other materials make them. If you are a painter, there are a wide range of styles suitable for pendants from abstract and naive to realistic animals and collages. As my art is mainly floral, I think it looks good as jewellery so over the years, I tried a few types of pendants:
1. Metal trays + art images + resin;
2. Glass cabochon + art image;
3. Metal trays + art images + glass cabochon.
In today's blog post, I am going to show you the latter using some relevant images.
-ink jet printer
-images of my paintings printed onto 230GSM matte card (I print a few on a page)
-matching glass cabochons
-Hi-Tack all purpose glue
-scissors to cut the images
-brush for the glue
|Getting the materials ready - art prints + metal trays & glass cabochons|
| I glue the glass cabochons onto the images, I live them overnight (approx 24 hours)|
and then I cut around them
|Then I glue the glass cabochon with the images onto the metal trays|
|The finished product - pendant necklaces with art prints|
