My latest addiction is paper jewelry, cant stop thinking about it, nor can stop making it
I learnt watercoloured paper jewelry makng from Ross Barbera's blog. I loved the idea so much that I had to try it.
So here is my take on her art. I made these four pendants.
I used drawing paper and three water colours - blue, green and yellow to make these.
I randomly dabbed colours(mixed with water) on the paper till the entire sheet was covered. Once done, I sprinkled cooking salt on the colours (this gives the textured look) and left it to dry over night.
Once the sheet was completely dried, I scrubbed off the excess salt and cut out two pieces of each shape desired (for front and back)
I also cut out the two exact same shape of each piece in plain paper. So I had four pieces of each shape.
I pasted the black string in between the two plain paper pieces and stuck them together with glue.
Once the string was firmly attached, I pasted the coloured paper pieces on front and back of the base pendant (made of plain paper with sting in between) and left them to dry overnight.
Finally I coated them with varnish.
And they were ready to be flaunted!!!
Self Rating - 7.75/10
Status - Happy, but need to so better
Tip - sprinkle the salt when the colours are wet, or the textured effect wont come
So try it and let me know how it goes.
-May ART be with you©
