I have been toying with watercolor for about 6 six years now. I have had some success but along the way I have a great deal of practice runs on good expensive watercolor paper. This year I found a way to reuse that experimentation. I've been making pendants.
I purchase the trays on line - embossed my papers, used pearl powders, metallic crayons and then sealed everything with this non- toxic liquid glass stuff.
They made great Christmas gifts. I sold some as well!
