Anyway, today is a quick tutorial for a necklace that takes about 5-10 minutes. I was at Hobby Lobby the other day and had to be bodily dragged away from the Fairy Tale brand jewelry section. I loved pretty much everything there. I'm also not being paid to say that or anything. I ended up leaving with only four or five items, so I did well.
|I picked up this beauty and knew I had to give it a makeover to make it the perfect halloween accessory.|
- Ax Charm (Mine is from Fairy Tale)
- Embossing Fluid Pen
- Red Embossing Powder
- A Heat Tool
- A necklace chain
- A small paintbrush
- A ceramic tile, or a cooking pan (something that can be touched with hot metal)
Step 2: Pour your embossing powder onto your ax head quickly, so the fluid doesn't dry.
Step 3: Place your ax charm on the heat safe work space you have acquired and follow the instructions for your embossing powder.
Now give the metal 5-10 minutes to cool down as it is going to be extremely hot. Be smart, don't touch the hot metal. You can chose to do both sides, like I did or leave it half and half. When it's cool you can slide the charm onto your chain and wear you creepy accessory with pride.
We can be friends if you got the reference! I will probably just wear this necklace year round because of my love of the horror genre in general and to keep my favorite holiday on my mind.
I never even thought about embossing metal before today. I didn't want to have to paint my blood splatters on, I knew they wouldn't stay and they would look weird. This opens up lots of new possibilities when it comes to adding a touch of color to metal.
How's your October going? What are you doing to get into the holiday spirit?
See ya Thursday!
