I bought the dominoes years ago (at least 10 years and probably more!) and they have been sitting in a drawer all this time waiting for me to find some inspiration to use them! They came as a full set, so could have been used to play the game with, but I think they must have been specially made for altering, as the reverse side is completely blank and smooth. They are quite small, just 1.5 x 3cm. I can't remember now what make they are or where I got them, but it was either at a show or in a craft shop. I wish I could find some more like them, as they are lovely to work with.
The first thing I did was drill a hole in the top and glue in a bail. Then I painted them with alcohol inks and stamped a picture on top (stamps by Chocolate Baroque and Stampscapes). The fact that the horizons all happened to line up was purely coincidental! The sides were painted with gold Lumiere paint, and I left the backs as they were.
The next step was to coat them with Diamond Glaze to protect them, and then to add some beads and a cord.
I also made gift boxes to put them in. The one which went with the fir tree pendant was covered in paper from PSX, again bought years ago! The other papers were printed from the Essence of Nature CD from Chocolate Baroque.
I really enjoyed making these. Made a nice change from Christmas cards!
