My gorgeous painted pendants are showcasing a very simple technique.
These bezels have been difficult for me to work in. They are very hard to line with paper (their shape is hard to cut out) and they are very shallow. I did want to do something special with them though.
Luckily I attended a workshop with Tracy Moreau who works for DecoArts. By the end of her workshop I knew I would need to pick up some of the spectacular paints in DecoArts collection.
This is my paint I used for this project.
I simply dropped the paint into the bezels as shown. (I also added a little blob of glitter glue.)
I was really interested to see what the ultra fine pink paint would look like dried. The paint is wonderfully thick!
My toothpick did all the work. I just swirled the paint together and was amazed it didn't simply turn into brown paint!
The pieces dried beautifully.
I then pulled out my secret weapon.
Jewelry Resin would both protect and highlight the paint.
With a very tiny bush I covered everything with a layer of Jewelry Resin.
Look at my peices now!
The glitter is gorgeous, my paint swirls are stunning!
When paint is this good, all it needs is to be showcased.
These will just be the first of many paint experiments to come!
