GlazOn n StazOn Domino Charms

After I got done with the Dream ATC yesterday it got me to thinking about other projects I've worked on where the GlazOn might come in handy.  One thing popped instantly in my mind that I just had to try today to see if it would work or not.

I LOVE to stamp dominoes to use as charms but one of the problems I always seem to have is my Bic markers smearing or rubbing off the ink I use to stamp the design with.  You have to be soooooo careful you don't mess up the image before you're done coloring it.  WELL, I decided to give it a try!

"Marie" Domino Charm


White Domino
StazOn Opaque Inks - Pink Blush - Tsukineko
StazOn Ink - Saddle Brown, Blazing Red - Tsukineko
GlazOn - Tsukineko
Fashion Ticket Stamp - StampersBest
Alcohol Markers - Bic
Gelly Roll White Gel Pen
Stickles Glitter Glue


The first thing I did was to cover the entire domino with Blush Pink Opaque StazOn ink.

After it is dry I added a thin layer of the GlazOn.  Someone asked about how much to put on ~ one small dot on this Mini Squeegee is all I used.  I spread it across the face of the domino and let it dry completely...  It seemed to dry much quicker today - only about 10 seconds.  Maybe it's because it's a domino instead of metal.

After that layer of GlazOn was dry I pounced a bit of Saddle Brown around the edges.

I then stamped the Marie Antoinette ticket on the domino using StazOn.  After it was dry I applied another thin layer of the GlazOn.

Next was the big test...
would the GlazOn work
and let me color the image without smearing?!?!?!?
Woo Hooo....

I used Bic Markers, Sharpie Markers, White Gel Pen and Stickles Glitter Glue - NONE of it smudged or smeared the ink!  I topped this all off with a final layer of the GlazOn to protect the finish. 

All I have to do to finish off this charm is to glue on the bail to the back!

I can't tell you how happy that makes me. 
It will make creating flawless stamped domino charms a breeze now!
What Fun!!!


  1. I have eyed GlazOn several times in HobbyLobby and seen a video about it but your post convinced me I actually do need it in my arsenal. It would help seal in bic markers/dye ink prior to Glossy Accents.

  2. Roni, I haven't altered any dominos. This is lovely. Seriously think about getting some GlazOn

  3. Oh that is wonderful Roni!! Finally a way to color dominos and not have them smear! You are a genius and I love how the domino turned out.

  4. I can hear you celebrating! Opens all new possibilities!

  5. Thanks for the tip, Roni. I'll give it a try!

  6. Thanks for your tip...I'll have to get some...

  7. I guess, like others, I will have to add this product to my 'arcenal'. I, too, love playing with the dominos in this fashion. They are so cool when done!


Thanks for your thoughts and comments!
