YAY for making stuff! As you may of known i’m pretty cheap, so what’s better than loving a picture and making it so you can wear it around your neck! I brink you ladies and gentleman PENDANTS!!!

A few things:
pendant trays.
mod-podge. preferably in matte.
clear acrylic sealant.
paintbrush.
lamination glue. not required at all, but’s it’s still nice to have.
- epoxy.
images printed on a thicker paper.
2 dixi cups & 2 things to stir the epoxy, if you’re using ClearCast preferably make these things disposable.
paper.
...a blowtorch...or a straw.

Let these bad-boys sit for about 2 days for safe measure, hook a chain or a keychain loop on there and enjoy your creation.
