Tangible Texture Pendants

After having so much fun with my tangible textures on canvas, I decided they would be great on these little laminate samples I had picked up in my Plum Bazaar haul.  See them in the upper left of the photo below?  I knew they would come in handy some day!

So, on the backside of these little laminate samples I had a blast digging through my junk jar and arranging little bits of treasures to be.

Then I added a coat of gesso and paint..

And added some shine with some old Treasure Gold I had picked up years ago at a garage sale.  If you have some that has gotten dry like mine, add some turpentine with a dropper, close the lid and let them sit a day or two and they should be usable again.  I also used a Derwent Inktense pencil in bark color with a wet paintbrush to add some shading around the elements.

And there they are finished, ready for some black cords!

I will be taking these pendants to Tessera Fine Art Gallery  in Wichita, Kansas for their upcoming holiday boutique… and maybe wearing one myself if I can decide which one!  I am kind of partial to this one with the baby doll shoe on it… Which is your favorite?

  1. They are all great, but I love the one that looks like an owl.
    I’ve been looking through your blog, and between painting, collage, leather work and now jewellery making, it seems like there is nothing you’re not adept in. It’s all such beautiful work too!
