This is how I usually do my dominoes.
I use plain ‘ol game pieces. I then either cover them with ink from a Stazon ink pad. http://www.tsukineko.com/store/cart.php?m=product_list&c=25 http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v355/bellalunaa/misc/DSC06122.jpg
or with Adirondack alcohol inkshttp://www.rangerink.com/product_adirdkalcoholinks.html
with the ink pads I just dab it all over the piece and then dry it with a heat gun. The alcohol inks I put a few drops on a cotton ball then dab that all over the piece and dry it with the heat gun. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v355/bellalunaa/misc/DSC06124.jpg
Then I will use copper or pearl alcohol ink on a cotton ball to dab a little here and there just to give it some more texture. Dry it with the heat gun. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v355/bellalunaa/misc/DSC06125.jpghttp://img.photobucket.com/albums/v355/bellalunaa/misc/DSC06127.jpg
Then I decide what I want type of picture or stamp I want to use on the piece. If it’s a picture I will print it out on matte photo paper cut it out like I want and then glue it on with crafters pick ultimate glue. I imagine any glue would be good I just prefer this for all my crafting. If I decide to stamp an image then i just ink the stamp and lay the stamp upside down with the stamp image facing up. I lay the domino carefully on the image and push just a little.
You have to lift it up carefully cause sometimes it wants to stick and it’s easy to smudge. If I don’t mess it up then I dry it with a heat gun. No matter what I do on the front I like to stamp the back to make it look pretty.
If the image gets smeared you can use alcohol or Adirondack alcohol blending solution to clean off the domino and start again. http://www.rangerink.com/product_adirdkblendsol.html
It won’t get the domino perfectly clean it may leave some of the color behind but it’s not noticeable once you re-do it.
After it is all dry then I will seal the piece with diamond glaze.http://www.diamondglaze.com/
while the glaze is drying you have to watch it for bubbles. You can pick up the domino and tap it against a hard surface to help pop the bubbles or you can use a straight pin to pop them.
I only glaze one side at a time I usually start with the front, the picture/stamping side. Let it dry for a while to be sure that it will not get ruined/smudges. Then do the other sides.
After the glaze is dry I drill holes for the bail/cord whatever you decide to hang it on.
I will try to get some pics of how I wrap the wire for the bail and post them later.
If I left anything out please let me know. If you have any questions let me know and I’ll try my best to answer them.
