I altered some childrens' wooden dominos into Christmas charms.
1. Using some kitchen roll paper and Brusho powders I made the backgrounds for the charms and adhered them to the dominos with Liquitex matte medium. First painting the dominos white to cover the colourful animal pictures.
2. I printed out some images from art-e-zine. I chose images of two vintage children both of whom are wearing cute costumes with pointy hats to celebrate the season. I decorated both sides of the dominos so there is one image on each side, again adhered with Liquitex.
3. Once dry, I coated each side with UTEE using the melting pot, and needed to smooth out some of them, so finished off with the heat gun. I sprinkled a bit of gold glitter here and there.
4. They were finished off with some little bells at the bottom and ribbon at the top.
I'm hoping to send the charms off to Canada, but I haven't yet received back charms for the previous (romance themed) swap I joined - so fingers crossed they will arrive soon.
