Spray painting

Spray painting the masked pieces adds color to the etched portions and the edges of the plastic piece.

To have the paint better adhere to the plastic, you can spray some isopropyl alcohol on first, then let it air dry.

Earrings and Keychains

Using hooks and jewelry clasps, the pieces can be assembled into earrings or keychains. DiNaLabs adds a holder for the pieces to make it look extra professional.

Magnets

Using magnets or magnetic sheets, we can also turn some of the pieces into refrigerator magnets.

First, sand the back of the piece with rough grit sandpaper.

Using double sided "super sticky" tape, you can cut out the tape to match the shape of the owl.

The second method we used to cut the tape, which was easier, was to place the strip of tape on to the magnet sheet first. Then, press the pieces on to the sheet. Afterwards, you can cut the magnet sheet with scissors.
