 Ground Glass Squares 

 Images, stamps, papers, photos, etc. (I used Joss paper for the one on the left and tea stained paper with a rubber stamp for the one on the right.)

Heavy paper for backing (card stock, watercolor paper) Clear drying adhevsive such as Mod-PodgeAluminum tapePin backingJewelry grade adhevsive (such as E6000




Paint a thin layer of Mod-Podge on the back of your glass piece. Lay the glass center over your image and press to smooth out any wrinkles. Let dry.

Spread another thin layer of glue over the back of the image and glue down on a thicker piece of paper to create a protective backing. Let dry.

Trim your aluminum tape to size and tape over the edges of the glass creating a faux solder. (Alternatively, you can solder the whole piece.)

Glue pin backing to the back and let cure completely. Now you have a great companion piece to go with your microscope slide necklace!
