I made this project at TechShop San Francisco.
Step 1: Materials
-Miniature dominoes - a pack of 28 can be purchased at a game store for $3.95
-Mod Podge or other decoupage
-3D Crystal Lacquer
-Aanraku jewelry bails - found at stained glass shops and online
* Synthetic thread will not fray and will give you sharper lines between your white keys. Cotton thread simply looks like thread and has a more DIY look.
Step 2: White Keys
-While it's still wet, wind the thread a few times around on the left side of the domino to keep the thread anchored.
-Then cross the thread along the back of the domino (photo #3) to the right side to start the wrapping that will become the white keys.
-Keep winding at about 1/16 inch increments until your even white keys reach the anchor winding. Unravel the anchor and continue wrapping until you have even white keys along the entire domino.
-Wrap the thread around the domino a few extra times to keep the thread in place and apply a thin layer of decoupage. Set aside and allow to dry.
Step 3: Cut Black Keys
-Cut into segments longer than you will want the keys to be. You'll be trimming the black keys off the top of the domino so don't worry about their exact length.
