kyratango
(395 items)

Result of the kyratisation!
:-)

Lacks of enamel completed with white polymer clay.

Colored with watercolour pencils and a thin brush before "cooking" at 110 degrees Celsius for 20 minutes.

After cooling, a thin layer of OPI (brand name)
matte top coat nail polish, applied with same thing flat brush I used for coloring.

Total process took 3/4 of an hour.

Et voilà! :-D

    Clever kyra, it's a beauty.

    I would be afraid of the oven process - that (with my luck) the whole thing would melt into a blob. Kudos to you Kyra, you've made it like new again.
    Also, love your palettes - the heart stones are a very good idea. I'm always on the look out for heart shaped stones. A beautiful presentation.

    Haha Gillian, no risk at 110 Celsius! :-)
    I even "cooked" a wounded real butterfly wing brooch:

    I needed a rough palette to mix the watercolour, the heart rock was far more decorative than the back of my oven dish, lol!

    Thank youuuuu!
