Wishing Well Granted - Glitters - Part Three

Hello everyone,

Welcome to Part Three of this weeks Wishing Well.
We have been focussing on Glitters and different ways of using them.

Today fairy Isa is going to show you yet another project you might like to try..........

A beautiful clay and fabric brooch!!!

Take your clay and some glitter and mix the two together using enough clay to make a dome shape
big enough to be centre for your brooch.
Isa has used a rounded measuring spoon to help make the shape.
When happy with the colour and texture, bake as per instructions.

Use the Tim Holtz die to cut several flower shapes (we are waiting for more stock of this die
which is due any day now or you could use Marianne D flower dies instead).
Isa stiffened the base petal with Decopatch Varnish before assembling the brooch.

Use Decopatch Varnish to add the glitters around the edges of the flowers.
Assemble your brooch .

And ....... so pretty.

Isa used -

 FIMO transparent - Translucent (cabochon = FIMO + glitters, that's all !)
or Pardo Clay - Agate 
Decopatch Varnish to add glitters on fabric, and to stiffen first flower layer. 

What a beautiful brooch!!
