Do ya feel tropical!? Do ya! I use prima flowers for a tropical feel and an acrylic accent to represent the moon. These are fun to make...

it looks like he took the easy way out and used glue on bails, but no, it is so easy to drill dominoes...especial ly with a dremel and a little dremel drill press.  i am surprised you all are just discovering decorating dominoes.  here in boston and ny where i work, we sold these more than 9 years ago...they are, as they say on project runway, already out.

but they are being used in new, interesting ways on clothing that you'll be seeing in next fall's fashions.

For you and anyone else who would like a "crash course" although there is a lot of info here, I was stumbling through the 'net because I can't sleep, and this site http://www.theenchantedgallery.com/dominoes has a quite extensive how-to guide on making domino jewelry using rubber stamps, but of course that is just the jumping off point.  She is a stamp maker, so of course, she uses stamps, but she primarily is showing how to create many backgrounds, has tested sealers, glosses, inks (including the alcohol inks that make the pretty marbly/bubbly backgrounds), chalks, etc.  Really nice, in-depth, and freeeeeeeeeeeee, which is always nice, especially when it is as well done as this is.
