Faux Enamel Pins
- Cardstock or photo paper
- Pin backing
- Mount board/cardboard (Mine came from a pack of envelopes!)
- Glue – PVA and strong adhesive for attaching the pin backing (Glossy Accents would be great for sealing the image, but PVA also works)
- Enamel Pin downloads or Mommyish’s Enamel Pin photoshop/Elements action.
I held the cut out on to the mount board and cut out a backing for the image to give it more stability. Glue them together, PVA did the trick for me!
Sadly I could not find my glossy accents bottle anywhere, so instead I used PVA glue to seal the image by using a paintbrush.
One dried, I glued the pin backing on and it was ready to wear!
If you have any ideas for some pins, please let me know
I tried doing shrink plastic version (similar to these ones I done many years ago) They didn’t come out so good but it may be because of the type of shrink plastic I had and that I used a heat gun and not the oven, but I have seen some fab shrink plastic pins that have come out well so this would look awesome when done right!
