Clear Pebbles: Epoxy, Plastic, Glass

By: Maria Nerius

Use this quick and easy guide to designing and adding clear pebbles to your craft projects. They make a great addition to a scrapbook page or picture frame, and you can use them to create eclectic jewelry or magnets.


Clear Pebbles: Epoxy, Plastic, Glass

 

Materials

  • Flat Marbles or Glass Glob: This is glass and usually found in the stain glass, mosaic or floral department of a craft store. There are two sizes and a variety of colors available.
  • Pebbles: This is the plastic or epoxy version of glass and comes in a variety of sizes and shapes. Some pebbles are pre-done and packaged for your convenience with images or letters underneath. Some pebbles are self-adhesive.
  • Adhesive: A glue that dries clear should be used or a clear liquid laminate.


Step by Step

  1. Place a glass or plastic marble over the photo, word, letter or embellishment you want to accentuate and lightly trace around it with a pencil. Cut the item to size and erase any pencil marks.
     
  2. Apply a small dot of clear drying glue to the flat side of the marble. Firmly press the marble down onto the photo, word or embellishment. Hold for 30-60 seconds to make sure you have an even bond or you can clamp or weigh down with a heavy book.
     
  3. Dry for a few hours and then adhere to your scrapbook page, collage or card.
     
  4. Option B: You can also skip the tracing and just glue down the globs and trim away excess when glue is completely dry.

Tips

  • Use with specialty alphabets or letters from computer fonts or rub-ons
  • Use aged newspaper or magazine text.
  • Cover mini stamped images or mini photos.
  • Cover a dried or pressed flower or leaf.
  • Mix and match sizes.
  • Embellish bookmarks, refrigerator magnets or thumbtacks.
  • Another option is to use clear buttons, you’ll not get the magnifying effect, but it’s a cool unique look.
  • Use to create some funky keepsake jewelry.
  • Add to a flowerpot, wrapped guest soap, small gift tag, or gift box.
  • Make some refrigerator magnets.
  • Flat pebbles make great borders or border patterns.
  • Ink or sponge the backside of clear pebble to add color and interest.
