INSTRUCTIONS

NOTE: Let dry completely between painting steps.

  1. Paint the entire bangle with Shimmering Silver using a medium flat brush.
  2. Emboss the cardstock with a pattern. Trim the embossed paper to fit the ovals on the wooden bangle. Use Americana Matte Decou-Page to adhere and seal the paper onto the wood.
  3. Use a sanding tool to remove the excess paper from the bracelet.
  4. Glue the flower embellishments onto the bangle bracelet with E6000 Glue. Let the glue dry completely.
  5. Paint the embellishments in Shimmering Silver.
  6. Use a stencil brush to add the Black Shimmer to the bracelet. Work it into the grooves of the flower and brush it onto the edges of the bracelet. Use a soft cloth to wipe back and smear the Black Shimmer over the piece to create an aged metal appearance.
