Bug or Lizard Pin

By: USArtQuest

Gild a bug or lizard shape and decorate with beads and wires. These bugs can become unique pins or decorative tiles.

Gilded Bug Tile


  • Willeez Lizards & Bugs
  • Duo Embellishing Adhesive
  • WireWorks
  • Texture Sponges
  • Gildenglitz
  • Perfect fx Embossing Tile
  • Handy Clip
  • Pearl Ex
  • Beads
  • Pin Back


  1. Apply Duo Embellishing Adhesive to a Willee using a soft brush. Let dry. (The adhesive will become clear and tacky.)
  2. Use Gildenglitz to gild the Willee. Use a Texture Sponge to burnish and smooth. (A variation is to dust dry Pearl Ex onto selected areas of the Willee, and then add the Gildenglitz.)
  3. Wrap WireWorks and add beads around the Willee. A Handy Clip makes the perfect tool to add curles and loops to the Wire. (If desired, attach the pin back with the Wire).
  4. Use hot glue to attach the Willee to a Perfect fx Embossing Tile.
  5. Use hot glue to attach the pin back to the back of the Embossing Tile.

Either provide resources that are easily available or present more projects with items that are not product specific, like Acrylic yarn, baby weight, or something. These are interesting projects but could be pretty expensive if things have to be ordered that you might use only one of a package of 25...

I agree with Readerwoman as I also would appreciate the resources for the products used for this and other craft projects as I'm sure most people do not know where to find them. Could you please find a way to accommodate those of us who are interested in making the projects. Thank you!

I would appreciate links to where we can buy products (Willee, for example) on your site, or online. Thanks!
