Designer: 
Materials List: 
  • Envirotex Lite
  • rubber stamps

You can create beautiful pins that look like porcelain. They're great to wear, trade with friends, or give as gifts.  The thick, clear, glossy finish adds a professional, finished look to the piece. You can also use these same techniques to make refrigerator magnets or earrings. A quick and easy project that's fun for the whole family.

Project Instructions: 
  1. Stamp the image on card stock Color the image with markers or pens and let dry.
     
  2. Cut out the colored image. Lay on waxed paper with the colored side up. Thoroughly mix 2 oz. of Envirotex Lite® and apply with a brush. (Optional: Glitter can be added to the Envirotex Lite® mixture prior to applying if you want to add a little sparkle to your pin.)
     
  3. Allow to dry thoroughly. Trim off any excess finish with scissors. Touch up the cut edges with markers or pens.
     
  4. Position the pin backs and glue on. (Optional: Embellish the finished pin with cords, ribbons, buttons or charms.)
