Stamping on dominoes is our next tutorial. Done basically like the tumbled tile below. It's easy and fast because of the small size, not to mention that dominoes are very versatile. Dominoes can be made into a magnet, necklace or pin (w/ a magnetic name badge backing suggested), Christmas ornament, etc.

Soak dominoes in bleach overnight to remove finish.
Rinse well and dry.
Stamp dominoe with Stazon - I used black.
Make sure ink is dry (only a few seconds) and begin coloring in w/ pastels using q-tips.
Edge dominoe with painty pen in gold or silver
Ink face of dominoe with Versamark and dip into Glassy Glaze thick embossing powder
Heat with heat gun until Glassy Glaze melts -- caution dominoe gets very hot --
Don't overheat or ink will begin to bleed.
Attach magnet to back, glue bead to top for necklace, or drill a hole in the dominoe to hang.
