The Metallic Color Lacquer made me think of Faberge Eggs for Easter. Since a few of the DT ladies did such amazing Easter Eggs witht he Color Lacquer I decided to make a Feaux Faberge Box, and Easter Pendant. Here's what I used.
Altoid Smalls Tin
Easter Images from Tim Holtz Seasonal Paper Stash
For the Pendant, I trimmed a Vertical Easter image to the size of the finding, glued it in place with a small dot of Clear Crystal Lacquer, and filled the top of the image, inside the Jewelry Finding with Clear Crystal Lacquer and set it aside to dry.
For the Box, I painted an Altoid Tin with blue paint. I centered my Horizontal Easter Image and adhered it with Clear Crystal Lacquer. I framed the image with the Gold Metallic Color Lacquer, and created my Fabrage design. I let that dry and then filled in the blue spaces with some Blue Color Lacquer to give it a more enamel look, like faberge has. I added metallic details on the image itself, then filled the whole image in with Clear Crystal Lacquer.
I set it to dry over night and Voila!!
I think this could make a lovely Easter Hostess Gift. I love the way it turned out and just working on it I got a lot of fun ideas of ways to make faberge designs with Metallic Color Lacquer. For more great ideas check out my blog and the Sakura Craft Design Team Blog!
Have a Happy Easter!!
