It had that brass metal inside that makes your arm green, but I like the little geometric shapes. (I am reliably informed that these are square based pyramids)
This bracelet has had two makeovers, You'll see why in a minute.
1st - Bright Nail Varnish
Each square got about 3 coats of nail varnish, some needed a fourth coat.
It looks pretty good doesn't it?
Time for another try.
2nd - Copper Enamel Paint
The nail varnish came right off with nail varnish remover, not that you would expect it not to of course. So the bangle was back to being naked again!
I had this copper enamel paint so tried painting every other square.
This time I also painted the inside to stop the whole green arm thing.
It needed 3 coats of the copper enamel paint and there are a few brush marks if you look really closely. I imagine using masking tape and a spray paint would give fantastic results, but I do like using what I already have whenever possible.
So far this paint is a lot more hard wearing than the nail varnish. I'll let you know how it gets on over time.
- Today I'm trying out a larger font size than I've used before - what do you think? Does it look like I'm shouting at you or is it just easier to read? Your feedback is very welcome!
