We're using metallics as our design inspiration at Tando Creative this week.
I seem to be on a bit of a jewellery kick at the moment! I've used three inchies and gently round the corners (I do love that tiny ⅛" on the newer Corner Chomper!) as well as punching holes with a Crop-o-Dile.
Each inchie is done with a different metallic finish. I used three coats of silver UTEE on each square and a layer of Perfect Pearls on two of them (both from the Metallics kit - one Gold, one Bronze). I pressed a stamp into the warm UTEE for texture. I've then glazed them with Decoart Triple Thick - the last time I tried this I used Glossy Accents and it really didn't work (it didn't dry evenly and it split apart in several places so the piece ended up in the bin). I was impressed with the Triple Thick in this regard, it dried evenly and with no problems.
I added jump rings to each piece, filled with more Triple Thick and then finished with a contrasting metallic colour once dry.
The inchies are joined together with jump rings and attached to a necklace chain through a little piece of aluminium tubing superglued to the top one.
The surfaces are shiny enough that it made photographing it a bit of a nightmare but I hope you get the idea!
