Religious Icons With Wooden Support

Introduction: Religious Icons With Wooden Support

Greetings from the land of Romania.My name is Silvio and I want to share with you a way to earn extra money.The investment is affordable for any pocket.To the large icons i use the  support and  for the  small  a piece of magnet glued on the back.Time is money so let's get to work.
What we need :
2.super glue
4.fine shee tsandpaper
8.wood stain
9.plasticized icons
10.patience ( most important )

Step 1: Let's Make the Wooden Support

I use sizes that appear in photos but  but you can use others depending on the size of photo.I use the cm and you have to convert in to inch .When all pieces are cut unite with superglue.

Step 2: Finishing the Support

Finishing support, I recommend a piece of sandpaper glued on a piece of wood without defects.After you have finished finished sides, rounded ends recommend them for a aesthetically pleasing.

Step 3: Strengthen and Decorate the Edges With the Desired Color

I recommend the wood stain and you  found in al most any color .Give more layers and then wipe with a soft cotton cloth.

Step 4: Processing of Plasticized Icon

First cut edge plastic boardand then put to the laminate and mark with the pencil.Now cut the plate and then glued with superglue the icon.To finally give several layers of stain on the edge .

Step 5: Final Product

I hope you enjoy my creation and I will soon post other creations.Increase in work and all the best.

    Congratulations on your first Instructable. I like these icons very much, but they are not always easy to find in the USA. I saw them being made while we were in Greece in 2006. I suppose art supply stores that sell fine prints may be able to order them.

    @Phil: There is an Orthodox community in Boscobel, Wisconsin, that paints icons. You can find their wares at:
