One of three batches of tiles

Scrabble Tile Pendants - batch 1
Originally uploaded by tamdolloriginal

I guess I was lucky the first time I made some of these scrabble tile pendants and used resin to seal them.  The first batch were amazing.  Well... except for the ones I had to chisel off the tile they were drying on (read all about it here).  This batch... not so good.  More pictures of works-in-progress at my flickr account (click the picture).  I'll have bails glued on and new pictures here tomorrow.

Here's what I've learned:

  • It's super hard to find teeny tiny images and still be original.
  • Glue and resin fumes really do make you dizzy & nauseous.  Those warnings aren't for nothing! Open a window!!!
  • You really need to watch out for resin seepage and do this: Resin Troubleshooting.
  • They're addicting.  I want to make more.

  1. Thanks for posting your experience and tips on this - it is great to hear first hand stories from people on how to make things as it makes it much less intimidating to try and even if I fail, knowing other have failed and continue to try encourages me to keep trying.
