I was invited to join the GAS MAMMA group on flickr. This months swap is altered Scrabble game pieces. Right up my alley, no arm twisting involved. LOL!
Of course I had to involve Spud, lots of arm twisting. LOL! I finally got him to set the drill press up for me, only after I tried doing it with a regular drill and almost went through my finger. I wanted holes top to bottom instead of front to back. I love how they spin and it gives you more decorative space on the tile.
If you don't have a drill press, then use teeny tiny eye screws on the top. The ladies in this swap are such a hoot and the horror stories of drills has been something else. Please be careful. I have to constantly remind myself to be careful. Just because it looks fast and simple doesn't mean it is.
I use Judykins Diamond Glaze on these. It gives them a high gloss, but makes it hard to take pictures. Well I'm an Artist not a Photogragher. LOL! Photograghy and shaky hands don't mix. That's when I yell, "SPUD!" LOL!
Have a great day! Create!
