Not really sure if this should go in the jewelery or art section, because these pendants are a bit of both! This is my very first time using Mod Podge's dimensional magic, and I love the results! I think I'll use bails in the future though, instead of trying to keep the glaze from running into the hole for the jump ring.

Here's a little argowl, outlined in fine-tipped permanent ink and painted in watercolours. I was inspired by CalamityChemist's drawing on deviantart and couldn't resist adding some argyle to my own little owl. A few coats of dimensional magic later I've got a cute little pendant!

As a self-proclaimed biology nerd I love creating DNA jewelery and science-y crafts. The rainbow colours were done using watercolour pencils, and the silver heart is acrylic paint. Finished with dimensional magic (one coat too many for this size I think).

C&C welcome! Thanks for looking <3

So pretty! I really love them both, they are adorable and I LOVE the colors. I've never heard of Dimensional Magic before, now I MUST run out and get some...

I love all things shiny, glittery, and colorful.

I hang out in: Fiber Arts, Needlework, and the Swap Board!

That dimensional magic stuff sounds really cool. Where did you get it? Do the pendants have some kind of backing?

Thanks for the lovely comments! <3

Dimensional Magic is basically a poor-man's resin ($6.99 for a 2oz bottle!) and a little bit goes a long way. I would definitely recommend it for small art jewelery like this! I bought my bottle at Michael's craft store in Canada, which just started carrying it a couple weeks ago. You can find it in the glue aisle Smiley

The pendants are backed with light card stock, but they ended up bending a bit when the paper absorbed the water in the dimensional magic. In the future I will back them onto thick plastic or something less bendy than paper ^^;
