My DIY Stella McCartney inspired ring - and a $60 giveaway
Here's a mini project to follow on the charm bracelet of last week, featuring Stella McCartney-ish botanical prints and new Mod Podge products from Plaid.
Last week I tried the new Dimensional Magic with mixed results specifically because I did not mix the results (did not shake the bottle to distribute the glitter.)
Dimensional Magic comes in a tiny squeeze bottle and gives a smooth epoxy-like finish to your otherwise dull paper and plastic creations.
I used one of the Podgeable Shapes (plastic shapes cut into small circles, squares, ovals, etc.), Mod Podged a small botanical print on one side, allowed it to dry and then coated the top with Dimensional Magic.
Here's how it looks when wet. It dries clear or with a bit of glitter depending on your formula.
I glued a 25-cent ring blank onto the back using Plaid's new jewelry glue.
And, ta da, super easy ring. Still not crazy about the glitter for this type of project but it wasn't as offensive as I thought.
Now to the giveaway. I'm passing on about $60 worth of Mod Podge loot - antique and gloss formula, pearl spray finish, rub-on transfers, Dimensional Magic, crackle medium and a Mod Podge sampler of six formulas.
