PAINTING AGAIN...but on jewellery :D

Painting again LOL - I pulled out all my lovely bottles of Folk Art acrylic paints last night and hand painted these gorgeous lockets which require baking and the use of polymer clay and loads of layers of RESIN to seal them all in - LOVING this new process. So yes, I am finally paintings again...but not on canvases :D - I am cheeky!

I also have a couple of earrings (filigree brass) currently curing after I hand painted them this morning - I have to wait til tomorrow before I can add my favourite beads: Czech fire polished faceted rondelles - they too look lovely so far :D - will post pics. when they are ready :D

Hope all you lovely ladies have had a great Christmas with your loved ones and now I wish you all a very HAPPY NEW YEAR!

    Nicola, thanks mate - I am loving this new polymer clay and baking process and the resin which is so much stronger than the diamond glaze we use for our glass tiles, its a two part mixture and dries rock hard so its excellent and looks amazing too - water resistant as well :D
