I was tickled to find this Patina Penny Ring made by Erin at Crafts & Such. Why? It uses my absolute FAVORITE FolkArt color: Patina! If you are looking for an inexpensive and quick jewelry project (and not just because it’s a penny!), this is the one. The copper of the penny and the Patina are beautiful together, don’t you think? Make several for gifts – and have some good luck at the same time! Visit the tutorial on Erin’s blog right here.
What a brilliant idea – paint chips turned to jewelry! I found this beauty over at Joanne’s J Spot, and I wanted you to see how far Joanne thought outside of the box. I never would have come up with this. I have so much FolkArt paint in my stash that I could make this, and maybe you do too. See the full post here.
Remember Shrinky Dinks? I loved them when I was young! Not sure if you are aware of this, but you can paint on shrinkable plastic BEFORE exposing it to heat – when it shrinks, it retains the color. Just like this necklace above from Alisa Burke. Alisa used a black permanent marker and acrylic paint to fill everything in. Go here for the full tutorial.
I just found this brooch at Oye Modern, and let me tell you, I’m loving it. I love everything about it except for one thing: the price. I just find it to be so cute, that I wanted to suggest a weekend project – re-create this bad boy with FolkArt Chalkboard Paint! There are many colors to choose from, and I’m picturing putting some wood pieces together in a flower shape with the Pink for a very cute flower pin. You can do these for any kind of parties really, but wouldn’t they be darling for crafty gatherings?
