DIY Decoupage art jewelry earrings with gold embossing. I had a bunch wood discs left over from another project so I thought what better way to use them up along with my scrap decoupage paper.
I used my Sun and Moon Glaze for the decoupage glue but you can use Mod Podge. It has been years since I've done any stamping so this was an experiment. I found this cool stamp at JoAnn's; most stamps are too big for jewelry but I thought I could use sections of it. I also grabbed a Perfect Pearls embossing kit hoping this would work:
I had no idea if my idea was going to work, I googled but couldn't find any info on how to make the Perfect Pearls permanent for jewelry. I've used powders on poly clay but not stamped! When my decoupaged discs were dry I just took the Perfect Medium, a clear but sticky "ink", and patted it onto an area of my stamp. I then carefully pressed the disc onto the stamp without moving or smudging, then lifted it off. At this point you can't see a thing but then I took the bigger soft brush that came with my kit and patted on a little of the Perfect Pearls gold powder, brushed it off and like magic the gold letters appeared:
I thought maybe three very LIGHT coats may do the job and just maybe the gold wont run. So I sprayed.....and a big blob of spray came out!!! Sure it was old and was in my closet for years! I thought I ruined my earrings but I continued to spray the big blobs until everything looked evenly coated. Okay, they didn't run but will they become a goopy mess? Maybe the glaze and this spray aren't compatible like what usually happens to me so I left them to dry. I went back and checked them after maybe twenty minutes and they were completely rock hard and dry! I will getting more of this spray sealer! I drilled the holes, added some beads and earring wires and what do you think? I may make more! If you don't want to take all of the time to make these you can find them in my Etsy shop: (just click on the photo below)
