  4. Paint the frame using various colors—abstract is best.

  6. Squirt a small dot of Diamond Glaze® on the back of the holders and spread using a cheap, throw-away paintbrush. Then turn over and place on the frame.
  7. Let dry.
  8. Squirt Diamond Glaze® into the holder, filling it up halfway.

  10. Use tweezers (or disposable toothpicks) to move the objects around, thus creating designs or centering objects.
  11. Cover objects with glaze.
  12. Lay flat and let dry overnight.
  13. You may have to check the glaze after a few minutes for air bubbles. You can leave them in and allow them to add charm to the piece, or you can take a sharp needle and carefully poke the air bubbles.
