- Flat Washers: They vary in size. At most hardware stores you can buy them individually to practice with the different sizes. Once I new what size I wanted I found it cheaper to buy them in a pack of 50.
- Steal Stamps: $9.99 at Harbor Freight
- Anvil: $18.99 at Harbor Freight I did not have this at first and was not happy with the results. I was using the cement and it marked up the back and eventually tore up my first set of steal stamps.
- Chrome polish (optional)
- Black shoe polish
- Sealer: Any spray varnish or varathane will do. I chose to seal the charms because I used the shoe polish instead of a marker and wanted to make sure they had a good top coat.
- Variety of charms and beads already made. I found mine at Michaels and Walmart.
NUTRITIONAL VALUE: I
give this project 4 out of 5 dragonflies. It is definitely a project that takes some practice. There is also the initial cost of tools if you do not already have them. However that being said, the pros far out weight the cons. The finish product added a very special touch to a special event for a special lady. It was worth every penny and everyone at the party loved the glass charms, they were thrilled to take one home!
