"Art is Life" DIY Pendant Tutorial

Directions to make this wonderful pendant are below.......

1. You will need Stampendous Frantage Mica pieces.
 2. You will also need Judikins Diamond Glaze.
 3. Start with a pendant tray blank. Apply a coat of the glaze to cover entire bottom. This is what the mica flakes will adhere to.
 4. Add the mica flakes to cover the entire bottom of the pendant tray. Press gently so they attatch to the glaze.
5. Apply a coat of glaze to the back of your wording and place on top of the pieces. Press down gently. Let dry.
 6. If you'd like, you can add a few drops of glaze and more mica flakes to any emptier spots. Using a toothpick or pushpin helps. You will then apply another full coat of glaze. You can add a few pieces on top of the wet glaze as well. They will sink in and blend.
7. Allow to dry, add to a necklace strand, and you are done!
