31 Days of Halloween 2013: Day 13 with Domino Art

Day 13 of 31 Days of Halloween is here!!!
If you came from Carla's blogthen you are on the right track; if not, then please visit Terra's Blog and enjoy the hop.
I am also part of Domino Art's 31 Days of Halloween Celebration.
Today's project is an altered domino featuring an image from a rubber stamp set designed by Rick St. Dennis for Smeared Ink Rubber Club called Voodoo.

The supplies used: 

Domino game piece

Golden Paint: Carbon Black

Black Sharpie Pen

VersaMark embossing ink pad

Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel: Black

Ranger's Glossy Accent

Perfect Pearls: Metallic

Voodoo Stamp Set from Smeared Ink Rubber Club
Designer Paper scrap
E6000 adhesive
Metal Spacer
Assorted beads
Head pin
Eye pin 
The process is really easy:


  • Cover the solid side of the domino with VersaMark and add the Black embossing powder.
  • Melt the powder with the heating gun.
  • Repeat this step 2 more times.
  • Cover the surface of the enamel with Metallic Perfect Pearls and heat again, this sets the Perfect Pearls into the enamel. 
  • While the enamel is still hot, press the surface with the stamp, careful not to touch it.
  • Remove the stamp and allow to cool completely before doing anything else to the domino.
  • Once it cools down, the enamel hardens and the stamped image is permanent.
  • Cover the sides of the domino with Golden acrylic paint.
  • Turn over the domino and glue a rectangular piece of scrap paper to this face inserting the eye pin.  Before adhering the scrap of paper to the domino I used a sharpie around the border of paper to add a little black outline. 
  • Cover the surface of the paper with Glossy Accents this seals the paper and protects our works.
  • Once it is dry, decorate with beads.
  • Add a metal spacer to the top, using E6000 adhesive, this is an industrial strength adhesive, resistant to water. 
Enjoy your new pendant, just imagine the possibilities!
Now hop over to Steph's blog, she has something special for you.

Julia

This is a stunning piece.
Voodoo makes me think of New Orleans. I hope you share this with the Broomsticks on the Bayou party.
