-Set of wooden dominoes
-Mod Podge gloss and Mod Podge Dimensional Magic
-Spray paint or acrylic paint
1) If you're super serious about crafting you will want to sand and prime your dominoes. I am not that serious, so I just lined them all up and gave them several coats of spray paint.
I went back and forth on the idea of sanding down the edges to give them a shabby chic look but in the end decided that wasn't a good idea. All of the tiles should look the same when they're turned over and they shouldn't have any distinguishing marks on them. So... I just left them as is.
2) While you're waiting for your tiles to dry, pick out your pretty papers. You need a different paper for every number you have (six). You can cover the blanks too but this could be a little confusing when you're playing. It's best to just leave them blank.
3) You're probably still waiting for your paint to dry so now's a good time to cut out your tiny little squares of paper to cover each of the numbers. I used my Silhouette but you could do this by hand. My squares are 18millimetres square. Make sure to pre-measure your tiles to see if it's the same before you start cutting.
|I was originally going to cover the blanks,
that's why there's seven tiles,
but I changed my mind~
I found it easier to brush the glue onto the backs of the paper squares instead of directly onto the tiles.
5) Next add a nice thick layer of Dimensional Magic to the entire top of your dominoes.
This gives them a super glossy, resin look.
It goes on a bit milky but dries super clear. Just watch for air bubbles. I put mine on so thick I had to let them dry overnight.
I couldn't put these lovely tiles back into their old box so I even made them a new holder!
Gorgeous! Now I just need to find someone to play with~
Have a crafty week everyone!
