The second picture is a few more styles. Yes, it is a bit addictive making your own bases.
After all the sanding, I chose a chalk turquoise paint for the base coat. It adhered beautifully. 2nd coat added.
When the bangle was totally dried, I went to town with the metallic finish. I picked gold, to give the bracelet a faux patina appearance. Decorating Metralic Lustre works great, adheres quickly and can be buffed to a nice shine with a cloth. Next, sealer added for protection and, voila!
Trying the base next with decoupaged comic images,so look for an update soon!
