I have completed the pendant I demo'ed and thought I would show you the finishing stages.
First I checked over the back and sides of the bezel. Even 10 days after the show I was able to clean this up. I gently rubbed with a baby wipe until the dried Powertex was soft then gently scraped with an old bank card then wiped clean.
I checked the piece all over to see if there were any sharp edges, this is essential so that it is comfortable to wear. I gently rubbed sharp areas with an emery board.
Next I added a layer of Powertex red ochre pigment blended with some Powertex Easy Varnish colouring most of the piece.
Then I added a tiny bit of Powertex white pigment to the red ochre and dry brushed to add highlights. I then cleaned my brush before adding even fewer highlights with plain white pigment.
Finally I added one of the cords.
And that's it finished and ready to wear!
See you next time....
