This is another cool way to create artistic and wearable art to sell. If you follow the video below for some ideas, they are using pre-printed designs. If you are creative, you could come up with your own design and then scan into your computer and then print. They suggest using a laser printer but I have used an inkjet at home with great results just make sure not to use thick paper.
You could also simply attempt to paint an original design right onto the scrabble tile and then continue with the resin steps to give it that gloss. There are many products on the market such as two part resins and other more instant gloss ideas if you are not comfortable with something that needs a UV light such as what is suggested in the video.
Jewelry is very hot, and learning how to make pendants that showcase your designs is a great way to make sales as these are very portable, wearable and great gift ideas, especially if you do more of the fall and Christmas craft shows.
These pendants created from the simple scrabble tile look awesome. Use the epoxy squares below that you can get online to give your pendant depth and beauty. You could give these as gifts or sell at craft shows. If you paint, you could incorporate a reduced size of your paintings into these cool scrabble tile pendants. So check out the video above to get inspired, and find your supplies at a great price online below.
It almost looks like marble. You can get scrabble tiles in dollar stores or sometimes you can simply purchase pieces of smooth finished wood in a similar size.
Now she is using what is called a "bail" for the back of the piece. This is a much better idea than trying to drill a hole for an eye hook. You simply glue these to the back of the tile or wood with good strong glue.
I am not totally a fan of the chain look, so I would opt for more of a leather strand or strands with a good proper clasp but that is whatever you feel showcases your creative scrabble tile pendants best!
You can get many of your supplies for almost all art projects online with Amazon, such as these cool bails that you would glue on the back of your scrabble tile or any other piece so that the back looks just as nice.
If you are using an image for your tile, don't forget to do something with the back, even painting it would make it look more uniform, and then attach the bail and your necklace.
You can get everything you need online if you need to. I like shopping online for craft supplies because my local arts and crafts stores don't always carry the things I need and I find Amazon a very affordable place to find most supplies especially when you are watching your costs for your craft business.
Finding crafts to make and sell doesn't have to be hard. Find something enjoyable, useful and wearable and you will have ticked all the boxes!
Display - Don't forget to invest in good display units, anything that showcases your designs and draws the potential customer over to your table. I have found simply laying things on the table is not a good idea. You need them up and either hanging or angled so the eye catches them. You only have a few seconds to catch someone's attention so spend as much time on your display as possible.
