So my new years resolution was to post more to this community. It looks like it's not working out. :/ Anyway, here are some of my recent crafty things. Hopefully I'll be back soon with more stuff.
Oh, I need advice. I've been playing around with alcohol inks. It's a fun experience and you'll never know the outcome until the end. So far I have two wood pendants that I stamped and inked. I'm trying to figure out how to seal the color so they won't bleed or fade. I'm thinking regular wood varnish that you would use on any household wood piece with but I'm also not sure what to use. I obviously don't want it to wear off, yellow, or distort any aspect of my pieces. Does anyone have suggestions? And is there a such thing as a spray varnish? Is that worth my time?( FINE pictures. You guys are so impatient. )
So recently I was watching some Pretty Little Liars(don't judge me), and I saw this amazing door knocker necklace pictured on the left. But I could not find it ANYWHERE. I searched everywhere online. So I thought, screw that, I'll make it my damn self. So the right or bottom pic (don't know how this is gonna show up for everyone) was made out of a plain silver lionhead that I drilled holes into the mouth, painted different colors of brown and bronze to make it vintage looking, and then shoved some wire in the mouth for the ring and attached the chain with beads and all that. Thought it came out pretty good considering I had no idea how I was going to do this.
