Siam, Thank you ma'am!


Hello, Allie here back with more Globecraft magic! At first glance, you might think these keys and butterflies are metal. Not so! With a little bit of magic using Piccolo Enamel Powder in Siam Silver, these beauties are turned into metallic looking art. I was first intimidated by these powders. I quickly learned they are very easy to use.

To start this project, I removed the keys using tweezers.

Next, I dabbed the keys and butterflies with enamel powder adhesive.  I then sprinkled Siam Silver enamel powder on the pieces. I shook off the excess powder and embossed using my heat tool. Another option is to bake at 350-400 degrees for 60-70 seconds.  You can tell when the whole piece is coated by the color change. I repeated this process twice for both sides of each piece.

After embossing, I coat side one with Glasstique. Once that side dries, I coat the other side. 5
While waiting for these pieces to dry, I cut my chain, chose my findings, and placed my beads on the bracelet.

Once everything is dry, it’s time to add the jump rings and attach to the bracelet. The final fun step – wear the bracelet!!
