Hi everyone, I have had a little time this week to play since I took the week off from doing Design team cards last week and I found a fun tutorial on Pinterest on making pendants from washers. Yeah, the ones you use to put on bolts before you put the nuts on...who would have thunk you could use them to make a pretty necklace but look what I have made this week:
Here is my first attcmpt which I made from a pink washer which is plastic and thoughtfully given to my by my sister in law Shirley...Thanks :)
Once that was dry I added the pearls and roses and covered the whole thing with Crystal effects. The only problem with that was the crystal effects takes a long time 1-4 hours to dry.. It kept running down through the hole in the center and I had to keep removing it with a wire and kept it on my finger, which means I had a lot of crystal effects on my hands LOL. It finally got to the point where I could lay it on a piece of hard plastic to set up for the night and by morning it was ready to add the necklace hardware.
After I made the first one I decided it would be fun to make a few more and decided to try using actual metal washers...well, the paint doesn't stick to stainless steel washers very well, so I had to lightly sand them, no big deal. I bought two different sizes and here are three more medallions that I made. I am having a lot of fun. Something a little different and fun from coloring and card making.
