This pendant is undeniably inspired by Japanese fashion. The base is an acrylic heart in purple. Add some paint, glue and glitter then glaze over it for durability. It's one of a series of sparkly fun jewelry features coming up!
Supplies and Equipment:
- 2" blank heart pendant (this is purple acrylic)
- a light blue faux pearl star
- fuchsia glitter
- pastel star confetti
- light pink acrylic paint (fabric paint wasn't the best choice for this but I loved the color)
- "stardust" style glitter
- masking tape
- utility knife and cutting surface
- clear glue
- clear glaze
Cut a nice "swoop" shape from the masking tape. Mask out a comet debris trail on the pendant.
Paint over the edges with something clear - the clear glue or a clear nail polish are good. Let dry.
Paint the masked area with the light pink acrylic. Keep adding layers until it looks good.
Cover the comet tail with clear glue, and dust it with the fuchsia glitter, trying to apply more closest to where the star will be.
Carefully remove the masking tape, you may need to score the edges with the knife to pull it cleanly.
Using the clear glue start gluing the stardust glitter along the edges of the comet trail - the goal here is to blur the edge of the pink paint visually. Add in some pastel stars, and place some more stardust and stars on the purple areas of the pendant.
Glue the faux pearl heart at the tip of the pink area. Let it all dry overnight.
Cover the entire pendant with a clear glaze, making sure to glaze over the pearl. Once it's completely dry attach it to a chain!
