Default Glass tile pendants

I've read a few threads there about the glass tile pendants and I just recently started making them. I was wondering if anyone would be willing to share some pictures of the backside of their pendants? I just want to see if mine are coming out right and I rarely see images of the backside. thanks for all your help!

I don't have any pics of mine, but they are just plain looking. Looks like the back side of a pic, with glaze on it. Does that make sense?

Thank you both for your replies! Mine look similar. I'm having a problem with my bails just kind of popping off, taking a small layer of the paper (just where the bail was glued) with it. It's like they aren't durable? I'm using E6000 to glue them on after I glaze the back of the paper part. I've tried both Diamond Glaze and Glossy Accents. Both look great when they are dried, and I haven't had any problems with that part, just the bails. Any idea what I should do? All the tuts I've read have the same instructions, and I'm doing it exactly like it seems everyone else is, but I don't want to sell a product that's going to fall apart in a few days! Any ideas?! I read something on here about scratching the glass, but that doesn't make any sense to me because you glue the image onto the glass first, so the bail isn't actually "touching" the glass, it's on the paper. Sorry so long winded but I want to start selling these and I'm getting frustrated! Thanks!

Stacy, I use doming resin on the back of mine so that the paper is completely encapsulated in resin on one side and glass on the other

After writing that I went ahead and tested all the tiles I've made (about 10) and sure enough, they all pop off. But, what I noticed is it really seems more like the glaze isn't sealing the paper well enough at the edges of the tile. The bail itself isn't coming off, a layer of the paper is coming off. So in the end I have a thin sheet of paper on my tile still, and another thin layer of paper still attached to the bail. Will resin fix this problem? Is it really hard to work with for a beginner? And which one exactly do you recommend? sorry for all the questions I just really want to get this right! Thanks again.

Are you using any resin? resin is easy, you just have to make sure it is used correctly and that all steps are completed and dry before moving on

I'm not using a resin, I've only used the glazes. Which brand do you use and recommend? I'm going to have to try that and see if it stops that problem.

I use Diamond Glaze and have never had a problem. Do you let it dry thoroughly before applying the bail? I also use E6000 for the bail. Not sure what could be going on?! I just do a thin layer of DG all over the tile. Let dry. I sand around the edges to make sure I get all that ran over and then apply bail.

That's exactly what I do, and I let it dry for at least 48 hours before applying the bail also using the E6000 glue. I see so many people just use the diamond glaze and don't have issues. I'm using scrapbook paper, and I apply the diamond glase all along the edges of the tile as well as on the back. Lots of trial and error I guess.
