Make your own gilded concrete jewelry. It is easy to make and would make a lovely present for Christmas.
What you will need:
• a glass and stick to mix
• gilding/deco metal application milk
• deco metal
• chains or leather band to suspend the ornament
How to make the concrete jewelry:
Mix the concrete and the water as described on the packaging.
Poure the mixture into your mold. Let it dry over night.
Slowly press the dried ornament out of its mold. Now you can decorate it with gold leafs. To get sharp edges use sticky tape to create lines. Then put a fine layer of gilding and let it dry. It has to be completely dry before putting the gold leafs on it.
Take down the sticky tape. Put the gold leafs on the glued parts. Press them down with your fingers. Then take a brush and brush away all the extra gold.
Your ornament is now finished and can be put on a chain to wear as a necklace. You have made your very own concrete jewelry.
I hope you enjoyed this DIY and I would love to see your creation, if you try it out (use #thebrunettesadvent so that I can see them).
