Key Chains 3 ways

Stamps Used:

The Rain Drops are from Designs By Ryn Water Effects DBR/UM-M2
The Life Death Pattern is the Centre Section of the Wheel Of The Year CP Q534
Decoart Media Interference Paint Green

Morning all, Mark here and today I have stuck with the Stampboard but no scratching through the layers this time, I just really like that they are nice sturdy pieces of substrate and very versatile.
I have made three simple key chains.
The first one was painted with a couple of coats of Decoart Media Fluid Gold to get a nice rich cover.
the rain drops were stamped with black Stazon ink and finished off by adding Decoarts Liquid Glass.
Once dry the liquid glass turns transparent and you get a lovely raised glass type rain drop.
The second piece has been given several coats of quinacridonne red. I inked my Wheel Of The Year instead of using an acrylic block to stamp my image I placed it face up on the table, inked it with Stazon and then placed my tile on top of the stamp and applied pressure, carefully  peeling the tile off so as not to smudge the ink. A coat of gloss varnish was added to help protect the image and make the red pop more.
The final key chain was first painted black, once dry several coats of Green Decoat Media Interference Paint were added. This paint when dry shifts colour as the light hits it, very hard to show in a photo, that's why there are a few at different angles to help show the effect.
You can achieve so many different effects with this paint depending on your base colour. Its semi transparent so if I painted a thin coat over a red base in certain lights the tile would have looked red and then shifted to a green.
Thanks for stopping by xx.

Very manly key chains. I like the one with the big drop best, it looks very real!
