After seeing all the pretty scrabble tiles on here I had to try it.  I couldn't bring myself to deface MY scrabble game, so I bought some mahogany tiles online.  I used some scrapbook paper I had, drilled holes, and covered them with this paper glaze stuff I found at Michael's because I couldn't find diamond glaze.  I think they came out pretty good.  Despite the fact that after I had glazed each and every one of them I DROPPED them.  On the carpet.  Some face down.  Sigh.  Even after dropping them and picking the fuzz out I still think they look decent and I definitely want to make more (WITHOUT MOVING THEM!  Embarrassed).  Some of them stuck to the paper I was drying them on (why I didn't use wax paper, don't ask me) and some of the edges look a little uneven, that's because there is glaze that is stuck to the back and sides of some of them - again a result of dropping them, the glaze didn't drip.  Oh well.  I still like them.  I used jump rings as bails because my stupid craft store apparently doesn't stock any REAL bails and I will have to order them online.


Here are all of them


Greens


Pinks


Purples - you can see the unevenness on these a lot


Reds


Misc - The cream and yellow ones had a really cool raised design on them I thought would show up but the glaze killed it

I think for a first attempt they weren't horrible.  What do you think?

I like the ruggedness of the imperfection. Makes em look old and wise. Smiley

These are super pretty, and I like the imperfectness to them as well.

What are you going to use them for ?

Thanks guys.  I'd love to do a craft fair in the area in the spring/summer time if I can ever get anything to come out right!  I'm trying to perfect my resin pendants too.  I really want to start selling, but I think they are a LONG way from being etsy-ready.

It's just called paper glaze.  I found it in the glue section of the craft store.

They are very pretty! It's an excellent job, especially taking into account that you did it for the first time in your life, you dropped them and you used wrong paper to dry them on. I bet your second try will be Etsy ready!
