Videos & Tutorials

We are working on a Series of Videos showing how to use our products. Hopefully, the videos will inspire you!

 

If you see a supply item in a video that we don't have here in our shop we probably have it in our Etsy Shop.

 

How to use Adhesive Craft Seals to make Earring Drop Charms and other Bezels using Glossy Photo Paper  or Glossy Bright White Laser Paper.

You can use a seal to adhere your image to the glass. You can also use a seal to adhere your finished glass cabochon to your bezel tray (in lieu of using jewelers glue.)

(I use Epson Premium Glossy Photo Paper. I also use Hammermill Color Laser Gloss 32 lb 94 Bright):

 The first one shows the finished item. The second video shows how to make the earring drops.

How to use our connector links with our bracelet cords to make interchangeable bracelets. Many of our cords have lobster clasp on both ends.  We hope you are inspired.

 

We show a great assortment of our Connector Links in the video below:

 

 

IDEAS FOR USING CARD STOCK (INSTEAD OF GLOSSY PHOTO PAPER)

 

If you prefer to use card stock (I use Epson Presentation Paper) I recommend using Mod Podge in a nail polish bottle. We offer it in our shop on Etsy.

It is very simple and the results are beautiful:

 

INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING MOD PODGE FOR GLASS CRAFTS:
Using this method, I print my graphic on card stock. I use Epson Presentation Paper which is a matte card stock. I use an Epson Artisan 837 Color Ink Jet Printer. I punch out my graphic/image with a punch or cut it out to fit the bezel tray I am using for my project. I 'paint' on a moderate coating of Mod Podge onto the back/flat side of my glass. I take my graphic and position it onto the glass so I can see the image looking through the domed/top of the glass. I kind of slide my graphic around a bit to be sure there are no air bubbles or uncoated areas. Then I align my glass and graphic and I set the glass down on a table to dry. I usually put a piece of paper down to protect the surface but this is not a messy project and no Mod Podge should seep out. I let it dry overnight but it is usually dry within 6-12 hours depending on how thick you painted on your Mod Podge. Once dry you may want to coat the back of your cardstock with a coating of Mod Podge. The purpose of this is because when you adhere the finished glass cabochon into your bezel the glue may soak/seep through your paper and ruin your image. E6000 is a good, strong jewelers glue. Another opton is to adhere the glass into the bezel with one of our adhesive seals. If you use a seal you will not need to coat the back with Mod Podge.

As with all crafts, it is good to test your specific paper/ink/glue/bezel with Mod Podge to be sure everything works perfectly for you before you do a mass production order. 

Happy Crafting!
