Paint Skin Jewelry

Several months ago videos of acrylic pouring started showing up on my Facebook feed and I was fascinated by them. So I had to try it. I covered my dining room table with a shower curtain, made a real mess, and fell in love with it.



When you pour paint, there is quite a bit that runs off the sides of the canvases. There are a variety of ways to use the runoff instead of throwing it away. I like to let it dry and use the paint skins in jewelry.




I always seem to have a dozen different pours or color combinations I want to try running around in my head, so I’ll have to explore other uses for the paint skins.

I love the paint pours and your jewelry! I actually saw another artist at a local fair who was using the paint skins, as you are. If you’re looking for ideas, I think I bought a keychain from her booth.

I knew there were uses for scraps from fabric and paper crafts, but never thought about the paint pours “scraps”!

What a unique and considerate use of the leftovers…the jewelry is lovely! They look like polished stones!

Thanks for sharing your large and little art works!

Welcome to LC!
The first pour is very striking, on the black background.
I understand what you are saying about the left overs, it always bugs me when a craft leaves a lot of “waste”. Your solution is wonderful, with beautiful results!

Thank you for your kind words. I’m always looking for ideas. I’ve done a few bookmarks and plan to do some keychains. I have also seem some beautiful wine bottle stoppers.

I know what you mean. My pours are rarely what I envisioned. Sometimes I can play with them until I get something I like, sometimes I can embellish them with things like temporary tattoos, and sometimes I just pour over them. It’s those times when a pour comes out as good or better than I expected that keeps me excited. I’m learning with every pour so my results are getting more predictable.

The pours are beautiful. I especially love the first one. It’s stunning. I don’t think I have ever seen them with images made out of them. I also love that you are using the extras. I have never done this so I am not sure what the leftovers are like, but they look beautiful in the jewelry! I bet they are a lightweight alternative to heavier stones.

Thank you.

Gorgeous! I’m very partial to the organic feel of the second one. Such beautiful jewelry, too. Two crafts in one! Amazing!

I feel like I should curtsey, welcoming crafty royalty like @MistressJennie 's MIL! :grin:

Thank you. The second one is actually one of a set of coasters done on 4" tiles.




Jennie is the best DIL!
