I made this personalized dog tag for Bea. Bea is a cute tiny purse sized dog. A tag like this would last one minute on my golden retriever. This is a tag that should be worn supervised. Ideally for a photo shoot!
The Metal Complex blanks come in three colours: Brass, Copper and German Silver. German Silver is really special. You won’t find it in many metal product lines. I used a small round metal blank in German Silver and punched in the letters BEA. Then I made a small hole at the top to create the look of a tag.
Since I planned to attach some White Apoxie Sculpt flowers and dots I used a little sand paper on the bottom of the tag. This gave the Apoxie something to adhere to.
Here are my elements to built the new flowered dog tag.
Bea will be the prettiest dog in the park now!
If you want to try a more traditional shape there is a dog bone metal blank shape in the collection. It already has a hole.
After using the metal punch alphabet to create the names I added a little extra texture with one of the decorative punches. To make sure this was easy to read I also filled the lettering with some red coloured gilder’s paste.
