Learn a quick and easy way to add color to a detailed pendant with two colors of Vintaj Patina by Ranger Ink. Simply apply a base layer of Lapis patina and quickly wipe away excess patina to accentuate the impressions in your piece. Add a small amount of Onyx patina to the lady and the moon to give them an "antiqued" finish.

In this blog post we will be embracing the latest trend in crafting, decoupage sea shells. When it comes to creating these exquisite coastal-inspired pieces, Vintaj Glaze serves as the ideal decoupage medium. Its finish not only protects your carefully chosen decoupage designs but also accentuates their beauty by adding a subtle sheen. For a finishing touch add gold edging with Vintaj Victorian Gold Ultimate Paint.
Crafting colorful domed enamel pendants takes jewelry making to the next level, thanks to the dynamic combination of Ultimate Paint and UV Resin. Ultimate Paint offers a wide range of vibrant colors, allowing you to explore various shades and create unique designs on each pendant. When combined with the elegant curve of a domed shape and sealed with UV Resin, these pendants acquire a polished, glassy finish that reflects light beautifully. This process results in stunning, wearable pieces of art that effortlessly blend color and texture, making for eye-catching accessories that stand out in any crowd.
