Glam It Up - Bangles

These are a few different bangles we have decorated. You can paint them with acrylic paint, Mica Gloss, Cosmic Shimmer and then stamp on them with Stazon. One is even gold leafed.
To start you need to cover your bangle with a coat of acrylic paint. This gives it a good base.

Stamp your chosen design on 3 different colours of tissue paper with Archival or Stazon.

Rip these into random shapes and sizes.

Water down some PVA glue in a pot and paint onto the bangle in sections, apply the pieces of tissue paper, overlapping slighty. Coat the top of the tissue paper with the PVA.

Once completed I decided the finished look was a bit too bright so I used some Cut n Dry to apply a thin layer of Mica Gloss Pearl which gave the bangle a nice soft sheen.

For bling I used the small Artoz sticky gems on two of the flat panels.
