Hey, first time on the jewelry board so play nice  Wink  There was a sale at Hobby Lobby the other day on plain wooden bangles so I snatched up a few to paint.  

The first is plain dark green with lighter green vine/leaves/ivy/something -

Blurry counter shot


Action shot

(I just realized that my wrist looks broken in this picture...)

Bracelet #2 Not for sale, purely my own <3 It's a stretch bracelet with 7 wooden panels.
Panel 1 - Hot pink base with "fancy" 'K'


Panel 2 - White Base with black zebra stripes


Panel 3 - Black base with hot pink heart

(There's this one spot in the heart that looks like the paint's too thin.  I've done several coats - drying in between - and that spot just won't go away.  Any suggestions are known causes??)
-- UNFINISHED AS OF YET, MORE PICTURES LATER--
Panel 4 - White base with Pomeranian silhouette and lime green "HANK" for my puppy

I have no idea why a digital camera looks like it double exposed...


Panel 5 - Black base with lime green Runic 'J' (This is what a 'J' looks like in Runes, by the way.  For my fiance, Jeff.  Not that he'll know what it is but it'll make me think of him when I wear it)



Panel 6 - White base with princess crown.  Cuz I'm a muthafluffin' princess!

Way blurry... Sorry

Panel 7 - Black base
* I don't know exactly what to do with this panel but I'll think of something...*


And comments, suggestions, criticism greatly appreciated <3
P.S. Sorry for the peanut butter...  And the blur.

Why don't you try painting the spot white and then after it dries, paint over it in pink.  That might neutralize the black spot. Smiley

The white panel with the princess crown does the same thing and it's different paints so I'm thinking it's the wood but thanks for the suggestion ^_^ I'll try it just in case.

also, on a slightly unrelated note, you can get less blurry photos by backing away from the subject. you can try using your macro setting (the little flower) but you still can only get so close without losing focus. if the photo is not zoomy enough for you, take it in to a photo editing program and zoom. it's an extra step (or two) but you'll have a way better photo to show Smiley

i hope this sounds polite and not snarky...i don't mean it to sound annoyed or snippy.

No, I understand but that camera is super old and it doesn't have the macro setting.  Thanks for the tip though.  I'll remember that when I get a new camera.
