Inked, brushed, heated and altered!
Dwyn presented me with a bit of a challenge the other day, when she handed me a string of metal, brushed silver beads, and asked me to work my "magic" on them. Not being one to shy away from such a challenge I decided that it was time to play! As I didn't want to wreck my gifted beads, I rooted around in my stash, until I found a couple of older ones, to mess about with. I decided that I liked the direction I was taking, so jumped right in, and started altering the challenge beads. Hmmm, should I use Baroque Arts Gilders Paste, Vintag Patinas, or my trusty, Adirondack Alcohol Inks? Well, the AI's won, mainly because they gave the beads such a cool, distressed, look!
