So I started with one of the charms I created while it was still a bit wet.
When the clay is not yet hardened all the way
I took the original charm
and laid it onto the clay and gently pressed
it into the clay
it gives the clay some definition
After the clay piece was completely hard
I painted it with Metallic Pure Gold
Then I used the Shimmering Garnet from
Terri Sproul's Mixers and you can get
those here. Not only does this give the
crown a glitzy effect, but it also seals the
piece when you mix it with the 3D
I wanted to add some glitz to my crown and remembered a purchase
I recently made from my favorite "Dollar Tree".
In the health and beauty aisle I came across these
nail art bottles. I knew I needed them for
my altered art projects and they came in
handy for this project.
I added some rhinestones and these itty bitty
pink balls from the nail art with the 3D Crystal Lacquer
and covered them again with it to seal it.
Then I took an unfinished crown, (yes I
usually make more than 1 piece at a time
in case of mishaps) and traced it onto a scrap
of soft faux leather.
I cut it out just a bit bigger than the piece itself.
I also bought these elastic headwraps at
the Dollar Tree that day, (but not knowing
what I would be doing with them).
I might have a buying problem lol.
I added some glue to the backside of the crown
and glued a part of the headwrap to it.
Then I glued the faux leather piece on top
of the elastic ribbon onto the crown.
and now I have a gorgeous headwrap charm.
Close up (it's hard to take a picture of yourself)
I hope you've enjoyed another tutorial from me using the Creative Paperclay®. Remember, the possibilities are endless...just use your imagination.
As always, have a great day and God Bless.
