How to make Pearl Earrings for your Cameo lady
Posted by Claire Brennan on July 03, 2011.
I specifically wanted to add a detail to my cameo lady - she's from the Cameo to go
set and I had heat embossed her with some white powder - it wasn't the
fine detail stuff cos I was looking for a sort of antique finish.
I thought I would give her a pearl ear ring, so I pierced her 'ear' right where I thought it would be, with a sharp pin.
Next I put out a blob of white paint on a tiny bit of scrap card. Card is better than paper for this.
Next I set the pierced hole directly over the blob of paint, and pressed down rather hard.
The paint oozes up through the hole, making a perfect little pearl
shaped ear-ring. Now leave it to set completely. You might try making a
pearl necklet in this way too - I haven't done one yet, but I am itching
I found that this technique was much tidier than trying to dot one on with my gel pen, I kept getting unruly blobs, but maybe I'm just not that handy with a gel pen, anyhow, hope it tickles!!
