Here are the easy step by step instructions to bring your CharMinis to life!
Before handling your charm pieces, make sure your hands are dry. Then, select the pieces you want to use to build your charm. We love seeing the different combinations you can come up with!
Using the water bottle and brush, apply a small amount of water to the area you want to add a piece. Hold the pieces together for about 30 seconds and watch them magically fuse together!
Repeat this step as you stack and fuse the pieces together to complete your charm.
When your charm is complete, finish it off by adding the jump ring to the outside of your charm. Add a small amount of water to the ring and hold it again the charm for approximately 30 seconds.
Now, hang your charm on one of the hooks on the Jewelry tree so it completely dry. It will take approximately 20 minutes to dry completely. The charm is dry when it is no longer sticky to the touch.
Now it’s time to Glaze and Glitterize your charm!
To glaze your charm, open the glaze pot. Remove a dry charm from the Jewelry Tree and hold it by the jump ring. Brush the glaze on all sides of the charm.
If you want to add glitter to your charm as well, remove the glitter dome button and add a small amount of glitter dust to top, then replace the button. Open the glitter dome and place your glazed charm onto the base and then close the dome. Gently push the button a few times to give your charm a dusting of glitter.
*This works best when the charm is still damp*
You can use your brush to gently mix the layer of glaze and glitter together. This will create a protective seal and will prevent the glitter from falling off.
Now, hang your charm on one of the hooks on your jewelry tree and allow to dry for approximately 25 minutes.
You can keep your completed CharMinis as is, or you can create your very own necklace or bracelet! If you want to add a necklace or bracelet, cut the cord to the desired length and tie a knot on the end. Apply the safety clasp to the cord and pull until the knot is hidden inside of the clasp.
Add as many charms as you desire to your bracelet, and secure in place by gently tying a knot around the hook. When you are ready, clasp the ‘snaps’ together to keep it secure. Now you are ready to wear your CharMinis bracelet!
If you want to get extra creative, you can braid or loom the cord before adding pieces.
We can’t wait to see what you come up with! Enjoy your new CharMinis!
