INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Mix each Media Fluid Acrylic with an equal amount of Pouring Medium in an individual small cup: Cobalt Teal Hue; Cobalt Turquoise Hue; Dioxazine Purple; Quinacridone Magenta; Quinacridone Violet; Silver (Metallic); and Titanium White. Stir each small cup.
    Step 0 Example
  2. Make a "dirty pour" in one large cup by layering in every paint/pouring medium mix. (Do not mix.) Lay down freezer paper (shiny side up) and make small poured pools, being sure to make them thin enough to dry and not create too many rivers.
    Step 1 Example
  3. Let the painted freezer pape dry overnight and peel up the next day.
    Step 2 Example
  4. Remove the glass from the jewelry piece.
    Step 3 Example
  5. Using an X-Acto knife, place the glass on the skin, finding your favorite spots and tracing around it. Do this seven times.
    Step 4 Example
  6. Remove the glass from each jewelry piece; place the skin with it; and insert it back into the frame. No glue is needed; the skin will adhere to the glass.
    Step 5 Example
  7. Add jump rings to each jewelry piece that will be used for the necklace.
    Step 6 Example
  8. Paint the wooden beads in Red Violet. (This is most easily accomplished by sliding a wooden dowel through the beads and securing each end on an elevated surface like extra paint bottles.
    Step 7 Example
  9. Assemble the necklace, placing two beads between each piece.
    Step 8 Example
  10. Attach the jewelry pieces to the earring hooks.
