Secrets Revealed: Stamped Glass Nuggets
I'm revealing all my secrets with the Black Bird Reflections necklace. Last Friday, I showed you how to make the glass nuggets charms. You can use the same technique on larger sized nuggets and make a pendant. But to add interest to a pendant sized nugget, I stamped the blackbird design onto it using Pebo Markers from Markers Supply.
The simple steps to making the pendant are:
1. Choose a favorite rubber stamp.
2. Cover the stamp with enamel using the Pebo marker.
3. Stamp onto the flat part of the glass nugget.
4. Bake at recommended temperature in a kiln or oven as directed on the Pebo marker.
Tip: Grind the groove into the glass nugget before you do the enamel stamping.
