Each wafer has a slight magnifying effect which beautifully enlarges whatever image you are using to create with. You can use a variety of materials to create these such as paper, fabric, and transfers.
For the blue one I used a gorgeous piece of Japanese Chiyogami Paper that I have been wanting to do something special with.
The white one was created using a scrap of handmade paper with a black backing that partially shows through giving a unique and interesting look.
The delicate rose one is probably my favorite of all and was made with a colorful rose graphic taken from an old Victorian calender. I love how feminine this one looks and I think it would make the perfect gift for the Victorian art lover.
The process involved in creating the pendants is just a tad bit involved as perfectly sizing your image can be a challenge. Once your image has been sized a liquid resin solution is applied directly to the glass and is pressed onto whatever image is being used.
Next, several layers of the resin are added to the back of the sealed pendant. In between the first and second layer of the back is when the pendant bail has to be perfectly centered so as not to give a lop-sided appearance. The final step is to completely seal the back with more resin to make it water resistant. They have been a lot of fun to create and I plan to make many more and will also put a few up for sale.
