Formica Pendants

I decided I didnt like how the formica pendants were starting to look so I started again 🙂

Heres the black painted formica tiles, I used punchinella and silver tape which I brayered to show the bubbles below:

Heres some clay hearts I stamped using Model Magic, these were painted fushia with acrylic paint and then I highlighted the raised area with gold acrylic paint. I plan on affixing these hearts to the formica tags above.

Ok heres the finished product. I decided the tiles needed something extra on them so I added a strip of torn paper, I then glued on the hearts and then added some tiny beads as embellishments. A layer of glossy accents was added to the entire tile as a glaze, then finally I tied a strip of cord around the tile and added a bead to make the pendants which you can see below:

  2. Very cool! Where do you get the formica? I noticed that you use a lot of that punchinella, but I’ll be dogged if I can find it. Where do you get it?
