Instructions:

  1. The stamping and painting will need to be done twice since this necklace is completed with the layered technique. Basecoat the paper with Cool Neutral. Place the postage stamp onto an acrylic handle. Dampen a cosmetic sponge and remove as much water as possible. Pour a puddle of Lamp Black + Primary Blue (1:5) out on the palette paper. Pounce the sponge into the paint and then on a clean area of the palette. When you look at the bottom of the sponge it should be covered by paint but you should still be able to see the texture of the sponge. Pounce the sponge onto the stamp and stamp onto the mixed media paper. The details should be easily seen and not be too dark. Then put of Lamp Black and stamp the flowers and butterfly.
  2.  Using a bubble palette, place about a dime size drop of True Blue into individual bubble. Create a mixture of three parts water and one part Easy Float. Mix one part paint with three parts water or enough water to make the paint transparent. Completely mix the paint in the bubble palette so there is no solid pigment. Using a #2 round wash in the flower and butterfly. Float to shade with True Blue, then Primary Blue.
  3.  When dry, cut the square to fit into the bezel. If you have the die, you can run it through your machine. Manually cut out the flower and butterfly from second image.
  4.  Sprinkle glitter randomly around the flowers. Mix Ice Resin according to manufacturer’s instruction and pour it in to fill half of the bezel. Allow to harden overnight. Glue cut items into position. Add watch gears and glue in place. Allow to dry. Mix additional Ice Resin and fill the bezel. Allow to harden overnight. Add charms, beads, and chain of choice using jump rings.

Instructions:

  1. Prepare the surface with sealer, sand, then wipe with dampened cheese cloth. Note, it is important that there is not any areas with high wood grain. Sand until smooth. Basecoat entire surface with White Wash. Apply multiple coats until smooth and even. Apply a coat of matte varnish. This will protect the work you have already done plus allow for easy clean-up for the next step.
  2. Determine placement of stamp referring to the photo. Place stamp onto acrylic handles. Dampen sponge and remove as much water as possible. Load with Lamp Black. When using paint on stamps it is important that you do not overload the image. Pour a puddle of paint out on the palette. Pounce the sponge into the paint and then on a clean area of the palette. When you look at the bottom of the sponge it should be covered by paint but you should still be able to see the texture of the sponge. Now quickly pounce the loaded sponge over the entire image and stamp it on the surface. If you don’t like what you have stamped simply wipe it off with a wet wipe! Since you already have a coat of varnish on the surface, it will clean up easily. Basecoat around the stamped areas with turquoise Blue.
  3.  Using a bubble palette, place about a dime size drop of Marigold, Country Red, Raw Sienna, and Mistletoe in individual bubbles. Mix one part paint with appx three parts water mixed with Easy Float. Completely mix the paint until it becomes transparent. Using a flat shader brush or #3 round wash in all the colors referring to the photo for placement.
  4.  Shade each color with full strength paint using a flat brush including the squares. Apply a second shade golden areas with Traditional Raw Sienna, red areas with Deep Burgundy, brown areas with Traditional Burnt Umber, and green areas with Forest Green.
  5.  Drybrush the outer edge of the snowflake with Whispering Turquoise, reinforce with White Wash. Add glue to the edges and sprinkle with glitter.
  6.  Allow to cure for 24 hours. Apply multiple coats of matte varnish to protect the tote.
