For her Fairy Tray, pictured below, Cindy used Polycrylic instead.

"Not nearly as nice a finish but easier to use."

This is the acrylic lacquer Ellen-Mary used to affix the image to the charm and to coat the image to protect it.
 

 Scan all the Major Arcana cards in groups of four, then reduce the image size in Photoshop Elements so that the finished size is just a bit larger than the blank charms, then print them out. (She used) an inkjet printer &   let them sit overnight so they were dry. Using the blank charms as a template, cut the printed images and adhere them into the blank charms using a thin layer of acrylic lacquer. Then coat the image with a thicker layer of lacquer and let it dry overnight. Attach them to each other with jump rings and attach the strands of charms to a heavier chain. That's really it


Ellen-Mary's complete instructions with step-by-step photos HERE.

 
This is a great thing to do for Tarot spells or to create a talisman from a card whose energy you want to manifest or to keep in mind.
