Go to Beadaholique.com for all of your beading supply needs! Hi this Megan with Beadaholique.com
Today I’m going to show you how to use this BeadSmith velour paper. We got this in recently and it’s a
pretty cool supply that you can use. What you use this
for is to back glass tile jewelry. So you can see here I have these glass tile earrings that I made and on the back of them is just the back
of the image. It’s just been coated with the diamond glaze. But if you use the velour paper on the
back it gives it a really nice finished look. It’s super easy to use. You apply it the same way that you do the images. I’m just going to put down a scrap paper or a surface
that you don’t mind putting glue on. After you’ve applied your image and let it dry and trimmed it then you just going to put some Diamond Glaze right onto the back like you usually would to seal it
up but instead of smoothing it out over that surface
you’re going to take the fuzzy side down and plop your tile down onto the back of the velour paper. So onto the
paper feeling side. You want to make sure you push it down nice and firm some that you get any air bubbles out. If you get any diamond glaze on the side of your tile you can always remove it with
nail polish remover after it’s dry. You’re going to do that and then you’re
going to let your Diamond Glaze dry thoroughly. Then you just use a pair of scissors
to trim around the edges just like the images and then it’s all finished. You don’t have to worry about
what the back looks like. You can glue right onto a bezel or a ring finding or
any other magnet or whatever you like to use for your setting and the E6000 will hold perfectly to that paper and it is a really quick and easy way to give your work a more finished look. Go to Beadaholique.com for all of your beading supply needs!

    For a 1 inch pendant, I would personally choose a small glue-on bail. A medium one would also work well, I think a large one will be too big though.
