Retired - World's Fair Earrings

PROJECT E2130
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Intermediate
Take a hot air balloon ride to see the world with these colorful nostalgic earrings.
Instructions
By following the instructions below you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring. You will also need a paper towel, a scrap of paper and blue painters tape for this project.
  1. For this project you may follow along the coloring seen in the photo or you may paint your own pattern.
  2. Cut off strips of the blue painters tape to match the sections of the balloon stamping. Using the blue painters tape, mark off every other section.
  3. Add a dab of cobalt blue Vintaj Patina to the scrap of paper. With your paint brush quickly dab the paint in to the stamping and wipe it away with the paper towel so that the color only gets in the grooves. You may repeat for more color. Once you have your desired color remove the blue tape and allow it to dry.
  4. Now you will repeat with the carnelian color for a striped look.
  5. Open the loop of the earring hook, same as you would a jump ring, and attach the loop of the stamping. Close the loop.
