Altered Dominoes

For a few days I have been having a go at altering dominoes for another swap on a forum.

The middle and the small top domino have glitter in the lacquer which doesn't really show up properly on here.

This is one side of each, I still have the reverse sides to do.

I am not showing the one I have completed for the swap - it is a small one - the others are the more usual playing ones - I bought a set in a charity shop so have lots to swap and share.

I would love to be able to drill a hole in them - so that they can be used for all sorts of things - but that is beyond my capabilities at the moment!

Wouldn't these be great to use on the end of a pull cord light switch. Is the pic and title of your blog new...or am I having another senior moment and not noticed it before?

Well spotted - I just added the 'inches' picture and got rid of the profile.

They would make good light pulls, key rings, fridge magnets, mobile phone 'handles' - just need to have a go at drilling them!

wouw what wonderfull creations you make .
i have a question for you :
would you like to trade some atc with us ?
below some more information

On the first and second of September, my friends and I, together with our Hobbyclub Retro, organise an exposition in the theme of ‘Travel around the world’.

But to make it a real ‘Travel around the world’, we ask your help. In our exposition we want to create a huge wall of ATC-cards. This is why we ask you: Who wants to trade ATC-cards with us?

The technique is completely free and if it’s possible, it would be nice if you would take your own country/region as your theme. It is not obliged to do this. We are happy with a little trade :-) The amount of ATC-cards can be chosen by yourself, and you will get the same amount in return.

If you want to help us, you can contact us on the following e-mailadresses: or

Hopefully we recieve some positive reactions and a wall of ATC-cards, wich we thank you for in advance.

With pleasant greetings, ilse
