I have had this watch body for months now just sitting by my work area...I've been trying to figure out the perfect project to make with it and I think I've finally found it!! I L O V E how this turned out and the fact that I was able tp test-drive some of Terri Sproul's new product that Sakura will be releasing at CHA later this month just makes it more special!!! The shimmer you see in this is all from these yummy new mica powders called Terri Sproul Mixers!!! I adore the effects that you can achieve with them! Check it out!
For this project you will need:
Watch Body & parts
Starkcraft Foil Stickers
|I mixed a little Black Lacquer and Clear Lacquer with Blue Pearl Mixer|
into the base of the watch. Already you can see how the interference
properties of this mica work!
|I then sprinkled some gold dust and some lilac pearl onto the|
semi-dry layer of blue pearl and applied more crystal lacquer
stirring gently to give the lilac pearl a swirl look.
|you can see here as the lacquer dries the streaks and swirls of color.|
|After drying a while you start to see the layers--the blue pearl|
in the distance with the lilac and gold dust floating on top in a
layer of clear lacquer. yummy!
|To the crystal of the watch I added some of the beautiful gold|
outline stickers in the dragonfly pattern from Starkcraft
|I mixed the lilac pearl mixer with crystal lacquer for the wings|
and the gold dust with the crystal lacquer for the body.
|When the lacquer finished drying, I put the base on the|
watch and voila! a fun shimmery dragonfly bracelet!
