Thank you! It's so hard to find nice feathers round hobby stores here though, I'd have to order them online. I've made more pieces since, and will post them up soon! A website showcasing all the pieces is also in the pipeline, along with an etsy store (finally)! Exciting month ahead

Thank you for the compliment! I feel like I'm only just getting into the full swing of things as far as learning to work with paint, and I hope to really be able to make them good enough to sell. Your encouragement will definitely push me that much further!

The result of more experiments with acrylic paint for jewelry! I call this the Outpour necklace. The dry paint was varnished, then glued onto black fabric, cut out, and sealed at the edges by brushing modpodge to prevent fraying. I used wooden beads and a gold silk cord finished with leather crimps to tie it all together.





Will definitely be coming up with more of these, might even add some feathers to give it more of a boho look!

Thanks for looking!

I needed something to dress up my plain outfit for a wedding dinner, and decided to take some inspiration from the Royal Wedding Philip Treacy parade to make a fascinator. Saw a pom pom one on Asos, and thought for sure I could make one. It was really easy and fun to do, and more importantly, I got to use whatever I had lying around.





It was the only fascinator of the night, which really surprised me! Am I the only one recovering from Royal Wedding fever? I could also have been the only 26 year old female there that night, not in heels.

Thanks for looking!

Very cool!  I saw your other post about how you made the round pieces with paint, but can you give more details as to how you made the bracelet piece?

The bracelet was made by squirting black and white paint out of a tube according to a vague pattern I had in mind. I don't really remember all the details, I was just messing about! I've tried to do it again, but couldn't get the same effect for some reason. I think I also used an ice cream stick or toothpick to sort of feather the thick paint and give it that bumpy texture.

The result of more experiments with acrylic paint!

The bracelet's got a cotton cloth backing glued on, plus chain and findings.





The grayscale brooch also has cotton cloth backing, and were then punched together with an eyelet.



The blue brooch has a felt backing, and is 'lined' with metallic silver acrylic paint to look like a metal frame. They had to be glued together first and then stitched at the back. I worked on it mostly at night, and in poor lighting, and didn't realize my clumsy fingers got mod podge and silver paint stains on it, it's pretty blemished. Sad
The brooches will all double up at barrettes as soon as I get my hands on the clips.



That's all for now, thanks for looking!

Oh and paint squirt bracelets too!





Loads more variations in wilder colours, tones, and shapes coming up! Hope the colours brightened up your day Smiley

I love them they are so bright! But what happens if they get wet?

They're waterproof! Acrylic paints, or at least the brand I'm using now, dry to a plastic, pleathery, rubbery finish and don't dissolve when wet. I also spray varnished them just to give it a cleaner finish, so that's double waterproofing. I think they would only get affected by water if you were to soak the whole thing in water for hours.

Good idea with the felt backing -- I'm sure you're right that the paint by itself would 'stick' to bare skin, but it's so much fun to experiment with.  Grin

Back in the 70s, there was a fad of jewelry made from layers of dried paint that was sculpted to reveal the colors of the different layers.  I haven't a clue what paint was used or how it was "cured", but it was like a hard plastic.

I've seen something similar on Etsy, and I've actually tried to do the same with acrylic paint, but they didn't come out the way I had hoped. But I did end up with little nuggets of paint that had sort of sedimentary layers. They weren't nearly as thick enough to sculpt with, that would have taken months to build and dry!

I've been doing some experimenting along the same line (nothing as nice as these, though), only I've been adding white glue to the mix because I didn't think the paint would be stable enough by itself. 

Obviously, I was very wrong, lol!

What type of surface are you pouring the paint onto? (I've been using sealed tile -- my standard "workspace.")

I poured daler rowney acrylic paint onto plastic plates! When they're dry I peel them off, and stitch them onto a felt backing, because I felt the smooth surface of the paint would sort of 'stick' to the skin.
