My 1st try at using epoxy...I hand painted a tiny piece of paper with acrylic paints...then used epoxy to seal her onto a plastic scrabble tile....can find NO wooden tiles in U.K. for some reason! I accidentally got fast drying epoxy though! So it was a bit rushed...in the UK there doesn't seem to be as many products for this kind of thing....got a lotta bubbles...but don't really mind them..kind of makes it look more vintage. I don't know if I should put a bead on top to make it into a pendant or make about 5 more and do a Romany themed bracelet...I could do a Gypsy wagon too...not sure....any suggestions please? Advice? Cheers! (ooh...look at my dusty shelf!  Shocked)

You've got painting skills! It looks pretty.  I think I would just attach some sort of metal bail to hang it, so the attention is drawn to the art and nothing else!
(also, if it were me, I'd try to color the tile a dark brown, I think it would match your little painting better. But that's just my opinion!)

I like penguins, stars, rainbows and blue.
If your project has any of these, don't be surprised to see me post in it! Cheesy

  Thanks...I don't think I can attatch a bail though...the back of this tile is not solid..it's sort of hollow...like a tray if you can imagine that. We don't seem to have solid tiles in the UK! I did think the yellow was quite bright..but I kinda like it because it's a sort of Gypsy-ish colour...maybe if I do a more nature inspired one I would dull it down though Smiley
