Glass Tile Pendants


Glass Tile
Glossy Accents
Glue on Bale
E-6000 or 5 Minute Epoxy
Decorative Paper

Optional: Q-tips




Take your decorative paper and determine how it will be centered within the borders of the glass tile.
Squeeze out some glossy accents into the center of the paper where you are going to place your tile. The amount to squeeze out depends on the size of your glass tile. If you have a small tile (1” square) then squeeze out an amount slightly larger then a pea.
Place the glass tile on top and press down in the center, this should help spread the glossy accents out to the edges of the tile.
Wait for the glossy accents to dry and then trim down the edges of the paper so it doesn’t protrude beyond the edges of the tile.
Take a drop of glossy accents onto your finger or a Q-tip and seal the edges of the trimmed paper by running it along the edge.
Flipping the tile so that the paper side is up, take the glossy accents and trace the perimeter of the paper by squeezing directly from the bottle. Once you have it outlined, fill in the space with more glossy accents. If you see any bubbles, pop them out with a needle and wait for the entire area to dry. Drying time will depend on the amount used as well as humidity.
Once it’s dry, use E-6000 or the 5 minute epoxy to glue on the bale.
