  • How to make a domino necklace. Temporary Tattoo Domino Pendant - Step 1
    Step 1

    Remove brass nail from the center of the domino (if it has one). Spray paint the back. In this case the back is the side with the dots on it(optional). Clean the front (smooth side) well with alcohol, to get rid of any dust/grease/paint/fingerprints. Color the front with alcohol inks (optional). Or leave blank.

    Find a temporary tattoo to fit the domino. It's ok if it hangs over the edge a little you can wrap it down the side. Follow the instructions for adhereing it. But it'll be put on the domino and not your skin. :P

    Find some "bling". In this project I used some nail gems I got at the 99 cent store (on the right). Some plastic gems I bought at the thrift store, and a few recycled glass rhinestones.

    I also got my dominos at the 99 cents store. One set will make a bunch of pendants.

    Lay out a design for your "bling". I decided to do just 2 corners. Less is more for me!

    Squirt some of the dimensional glaze onto the domino and spread it all around the face of the domino. You should have a thin layer that will act as a glue for your "bling" and a sealer for the domino. If your tattoo went over the edge of the domino, you'll have to spread a thin layer to protect the tattoo once the project is done.

    Arrange "bling" on your domino.

    While the pendant is drying you'll have LOTS of time to make loops for your pendants. I take craft wire and loop it around my jewerly pliers and wrap the wire around so it looks like a little wire noose. I trim the wrapped wire close to the base. Don't cut the long tail until you drill the hole in the domino. better to have too much than not enough.

    Step 8

    I place my dominos under a bowl while they dry to avoid any dust settling on the glaze, that way you have a smooth glossy finish to your pendant. I usually let them sit over night, that way you know for sure they're dry and you won't run the risk of imprints from your fingers.

    Drill a hole in the middle of the top edge of the domino for your wire loop. The tail from the loop will be glued into that hole.

    Make bunches of them and give them to all your friends.

    I sold MAYBE 3. Then I gave up. I wound up putting some in swaps as freebies.

What an amazing tip to place them under a bowl to stop nasties landing while they're drying! I've never seen that before. Thanks!

Where did you get your temporary tattoos? I haven't been able to find any as cool as yours. Love the idea!

way too cool. I have seen something like this before but they used resin to make it shiny. I like the dimensional glaze better. Thanx for the great tute!!!

Love these. How difficult is it to drill that very small hole?

Yeah it should work with wood/bamboo. It's not like you're soaking it in water, an it only takes, what, 15 secons to half a min. I'm sure it'll work.

really cool! I think I have a few lying tattoos lying around somewhere... Happy Do you think it also could work with wooden dominos? ('cause of the water I think it won't?)
