Hello everyone! I have bounced back from when you last heard from me and am my bubbly self again. I will probably right away it later but what I thought had gone wrong is all better now and my tears/belly aches were misspent. It has all worked out but to make a long story short I thought I wasn’t going to be able to do my Honor Flight Etsy shop but it turns out that I can and I was really worked up about something that turned out to be fine. :)
Moving on to what I wanted to talk about….
I have been planning on making & selling DIY polystyrene necklace kits on Etsy for a long time now. I have sold some to several friends but just have not had the time to sell the kits on Etsy yet. I have also had a lot of requests on how to make my water color wash pendants and the process that I use to make them is literally one that has taken me years to perfect AND it is a long process. I use a variety of heating/cooling tools when layering the paints and I use a belt sander a handful of times to texture the polystyrene in a way that it picks up the water color paint and maintains that unique look that you can only get with water colors. It would be pretty much impossible for me to teach anyone how to do that as a DIY project however I can complete the watercolor wash part of it and then sell that. Finishing the pendant after that point really requires no artist ability or knowledge….it is just a great DIY craft. I am putting together 3 or 4 kits and will give them out for free just to get some feedback on the product before actually selling it to buyers on Etsy. Anyone who is interested in making a few water color wash pendants, I’m giving away a few away so email me. If you just pay the couple of dollars for shipping, I will send a pack out to you for free. It will include all the instructions that you would need and it will surprise you with just how simple it is when the background is painted for you.
SoooO yeah email me if you want one! It will be first come, first serve. And the kit has ever thing you need in it to make several pendants that you can put on chains and sell on your own Etsy shop! Yey :) My email is JesseAnneDesigns@gmail.com
