Other Supplies

Paper mache letter, Paintbrush, Scrapbook paper, Square punch, Scissors, Sewing pin


  1. Paint the letter with two coats of Inca Gold. Allow for dry time.
  2. Punch small squares from the scrapbook paper.
  3. Apply a thin coat of Mod Podge to the back of the cut paper squares.  Position the paper squares on the letter in a random pattern. Trim some the squares smaller and position them along the edges of the letter. Smooth with your fingers to remove any air-bubbles.  Apply a top-coat of Mod Podge to the letter.  Dry for 4 hours before moving on to the next step.
  4. Gently squeeze Dimensional Magic over each square. If you get an air-bubble, pop it with a sewing pin. Allow the project to dry undisturbed for 4 hours (more for humid weather) undisturbed. This will create a glassy finish over each paper tile.

PROJECT TIP: Add more embellishments by dropping small charms, beads or micro caviar into the Dimensional Magic before it begins to set.
