Greeting my crafty friends! Today we will be making faux gemstones out of epsom salts, hot glue, ink and crayons! Here’s what you will need to make these.
Hot glue gun
Alcohol ink or food coloring
Clear nail polish or spray sealer
Metallic eyeshadow (optional)
Jewelry findings such as jump rings, chains or a bead necklace
Here are two projects to get you started. We will be making the crystal pointers tomorrow on Mass Appeal.
PROJECT 1 Crystal Pointer
PROJECT 2 Faux Metal with Faux Geodes & Drusy Quartz Stones
That’s it! Obviously, you can get really good at this and make fantastic pieces of art with this technique. As I working Momma, I’ve only got about an hour to invest while watching the latest Disney movie…then it’s back to shipping packages. So, the samples are what you can expect for an hour or two of effort. I will show you how to make everything in more detail tomorrow. I look forward to it. Let me know if you have any questions. Text or email if you need anything. The # at the studio is 413-512-3714 or [email protected].
