Bubble Pendant by Katy Leitch
This is how my weird brain works – I saw these bubbles and thought they would make an awesome pendant! This is so simple to make but it really catches the light beautifully and is lightweight to wear.
Samantha K: Acrylic Bubbles
Ranger Alcohol Inks in blues and greens
Therm-o-web Mixed Media Medium (or foiling glue of your choice)
Here’s how I made it:
1 Peel the backing off the acrylic before you start – it has a protective covering both sides. Add alcohol inks with a felt dabbing tool. Work with a mixture of colours and build up about 3 layers. Use a pouncing motion to add the inks.
2 Add a layer of Mixed Media Medium (or your gilding glue of choice) and leave it until it becomes tacky. Add a layer of gilding flake and press into the medium. Let it settle for a while then rub back. If you have gaps, simply add more glue/flake until you have full coverage.
3 Add a layer of gloss varnish over the back to protect the flake. I didn’t but you can additionally stamp an image on the front side with StazOn if you like.
