How to make a baroque chandelier style altered art pendant

chandelier glass tile pendant

You will need

  • - Clear glass chandelier baroque pendants. Beads Online stock two sizes 50x35mm & 38x26mm.
    This tutorial we used 38x26mm
  • - Patterned paper. We used one of our Printed Collage Sheet
  • - Clear adhesive. We used Diamond Glaze but you can use Modge Podge and Ranger - Accents Line Glossy Accents
  • - Fine tipped precision scissors
  • - Pencil or pen
  • - Pin & head pin
  • - Small tipped paint brush
  • 1. Take your pen/pencil and trace around the the pendant. The back of the pendant has a small step approx. 3mm. Draw inside the tracing smoothing the shape inwards approx 2-3mm. Using your scissors cut inside the new shape.
  • 2. Take the new cut out, using it as a template cut some pattern paper (we used vintage sheet music) and using your adhesive glue some pretty paper on the back. Allow to dry. Note this step is optional.
  • 3. Take some adhesive and add a SMALL amount to the back of the pendant. Place the paper on the back. Using your fingers smooth out any air bubbles and make sure the adhesives is spread evenly. Use a clean cloth to clean any excess glaze.
  • 4. Allow to dry for a while. Take your pin and insert through the hole in the top of the pendant through the paper. Using your pin you may want to pierce a hole next to it. Take your your head pin and instate it through the hole. The reason you use a pin first is so you don't tear the paper with the head pin.
  • 5. Using your paint brush a layer of the clear adhesive on the back of the pendant. Allow 24 hours to try. Remove head pin and now the pendant is ready to add to your designs.
