- There are 2 techniques to stamping on the bangle: rolling the bangle onto the stamp, and rolling the stamp onto the bangle. If you roll the bangle onto the stamp, it is easier but can be less precise since you have less control. If you roll the stamp onto the bangle, it’s trickier to get right but that way you can make sure the entire stamp touches the bangle. Since this bangle wasn’t big on precision, I did the easier way and rolled the bangle on the stamp.
- For a sparkly shiny finish, I mixed about 1 teaspoon of Diamond Glaze with 2-3 drops of Smooch Illuminate topcoat. Paint a thin coat all over the bangle and let dry…nice and sparkly!
- Squeeze several drops of both Sailboat Blue alcohol ink and Alcohol Blending Solution onto your felt applicator. Dab all over outside of bangle for a mottled blue effect. Apply another coat for a darker color if desired. Place the clock/texture stamp on your acrylic block and ink up with Timber Brown Stazon. Place the block stamp side up and roll the bangle onto the stamp. Ink, and stamp again, covering the whole bangle.
- Repeat stamping all over, this time with Gold Stazon. Let dry.
- Dab a makeup sponge onto your Gold Stazon ink pad and dab onto the sides and inside until both are coated evenly. Let dry.
- On a plastic lid or paint palette, squeeze about 1 teaspoon Diamond Glaze and add 2-3 drops of Smooch Illuminate. Mix in with a paintbrush. Paint a thin coat all over the bangle (you may want to do the inside and outside separately). Let dry overnight, then wear!
