New Dog Tag Project



Good morning everyone! Brrrr....32 degrees on the patio this morning. My heater is running now!
When Gail came to town a copuple of weeks ago she brought some supplies for yet another new project. She took a class with Julia Jae in Everett at http://blackdoorstudio.ning.com/ to learn this process.
These are done by printing your desired image & placing it on your desired background.  Brush Polymer medium over the image giving it a good coat. Lay your little plexiglass cover over & apply pressure. Let dry.
Once dried, trim the edges & add whatever little charms you like. I am placing them on 30" ball chains.
I used double sided paper on some & simply glazed over the back side. You can also add the metal dog tag piece on the back. Sorry I don't know all the correct terminolgy for this stuff.
In the pics....the beautiful white lab is Marvelous Maxie, the drop dead gorgeous cat is my Cooper, the drop dead gorgeous child is also mine & the gorgeous german shepherd belongs to a very good friend. She is getting this as part of a birthday present.      Hope you all have a wonderful day
