|Glitter + Skull & Crossbones + Heart + Rhinestone = Awesomeness|
Iron Craft's Midas Touch challenge really inspired me. First I made Super Simple Button Earrings and then I cranked out my new favorite thing. It's a ring that I've named "Murder on the Dancefloor" or "Disco Death". Well, who cares what it's called. It's fabulous!
- Bezel ring base with a deep well
- Elmer's Glue-All
- Gold glitter
- Skull & crossbones pendant
- Heart button
- Mod Podge Dimensional Magic*
Coat the inside of the ring's well with Glue-All and sprinkle liberally with glitter. Pour the excess glitter onto a piece of paper or into a funnel to reuse it. Using the pliers, twist off the shank of the pendant.
|Glue-All glues all. Especially glitter.|
Very, very carefully add in the pendant, rhinestone, and heart before the glue dries. Don't mess up the glitter. If it does get messed up, reapply the glitter as necessary.
|Carefully add your pieces in without displacing the glitter.|
I used the pliers as a stand to keep the ring upright while adding the Dimensional Magic*. Fill in all areas to the top of the well. Pop any air bubbles with a pin or toothpick.

The Dimensional Magic* is opaque while wet, but dries clear. I left mine to dry overnight.

Once it dries, add more if the Dimensional Magic* has become a bit concave.
|Glittery and funky. Love it!|
|I love how glossy my new ring is.|
And that's all, folks! Easy enough, no?
*edit 6.7.11 - The Mod Podge Dimensional Magic became cloudy after a few wearings. I'm planning on recreating this ring using epoxy resin. The Dimensional Magic would probably be better in smaller doses.
