|What's black and white and shiny all over? My made-over earrings!|
So, turns out there's such a thing as being too clean. I had these silvery (and inexpensive) hoop earrings that I had cleaned a bit too much (hydrogen peroxide). The earrings' finish almost completely came off. So not cute! Most people would have tossed them, but seeing as I'm me, I kept them. And then painted them. Did you honestly expect me to do anything else?
- Hoop earrings
- Permanent marker
- Mod Podge
- Paint brush
I applied two thin coats of white acrylic paint, letting them dry thoroughly in between.
Then I drew on the stripes with a permanent marker. I didn't get them too perfect on purpose. I just think they're cooler that way.
I then sealed them with a quick coat of Mod Podge. Any clear sealer would work. I just happen to always have a huge jar of Mod Podge around. I really love that stuff. More drying time!
I really love how they turned out!
