Domino Sharpie Pendants

I love experimenting with art stuff! Especially when I can utilize the items I have around the house...and you can imagine right now I have quite a bit around the house.  Lets just say I purposefully avoided the neighborhood garage sales Saturday to avoid temptation.
Well, this week at Funky Jewelry Design class after school at Westchase Elementary, I taught the girls to create easy pendants. We used Sharpie markers to create the designs then added the bails and acrylic varnish to seal them. This weekend I decided to take the process a little further and was tickled with the results. The trick? Rubbing alcohol. 90% works best. You just use a cotton swab to add to the design and watch it work its magic. When I was happy with the blend, I went back and added some details with a fine tip marker or a rubber stamp and acrylic paint.  I also tried a little metallic alcohol ink on a few to add some pizazz. I can't wait to turn many of these into pendants!
