Inks and Aluminum

by Lynda Carson.
(Spring Valley, California USA)


These two pair of earrings were made using aluminum sheeting. Tracing, cutting, filing and sanding the shapes. Aluminum is cheap, light weight, and fairly easy to cut with kitchen shears.

I wanted to see what would happen if I tried two different inking methods of embellishment.
The birds were painted with alcohol inks. The hearts were stamped with StazOn ink. Both received a coat of satin varnish.

Both worked just great!
