Colored feathers

August 17, 2010

I found these coloured feathers and I thought: ” What should I do with them?”  Well…maybe trying to do some jewellery out of them later.

But at the moment, I´ll just enjoy them as background decorations.

Crackle finish technique

August 6, 2010

As you remember, my earlier post´s subject was about decorating wooden earrings. Today I will tell you how to make similar ones using crackle technique. It is very easy to do but you need to gather a bit of patience. 🙂

Things you will need:

What you should do?

  • Apply a thin coat of lighter acrylic colour on the earrings mixed with the step 1 crackle medium 50:50.  NB! Before each next step, let them dry!
  • Place the motif on the earrings (use only the upper layer) with the right side up and fix with napkin varnish brushing from the centre outwards.
  • Then add some darker pink colour around the motif.
  • Apply a thick coat of step 2 crackle medium around the motif.
  • To give shine, you can add a thin coat of glue varnish when all is done and the last layer of crackle medium is completely dry.

And here is the result:

Hello everybody!

So today I will tell you how I and my friend Kersti went to the Kadrioru park. It is a great place where  to spend time with your friends, have a walk by the seaside or just  have a picnic with your family. 😉

Here  is a picture of Kadrioru palace I took:

But this is not what I want to tell about. We took some photos of jewellery and here you can see a photo of me. Hello! 🙂

I am wearing my handmade wooden earrings.

To make similar ones you need:

  • Wooden blanks
  • A napkin
  • Some acrylic colours
  • Transparent glitter colour
  • And a glue varnish

What you need to do?

  • Apply a thin coat of white acrylic colour on the earrings.  NB! Before each next step, let them dry!
  • Place the motif on the earrings (use only the upper layer) with the right side up and fix with napkin varnish brushing from the centre outwards.
  • Add some black colour around the motive.
  • Put some glitter colour on.
  • And finally apply a thin coat of varnish again. The last layer of varnish will fix the glitter paint.

So they will look like on the photo below:
