The earrings were inspired by the brutalist design style which is celebrated for its bold and striking aesthetic. The various paint looks were created using diagonal strokes with Hematite, Antique Copper, White Gold and Rose Gold Ultimate Paints.

When added to a piece of jewelry, dangles and drops can create movement and depth, drawing the eye and adding a sense of liveliness to the piece. They can be used to create a cascading effect.

These inspiring patterns were created with a dragging technique where you apply a base layer of paint and drop complimentary colors in a pattern on top. While wet, you drag and eye pin through the drops and a pattern emerges!

These gold and copper earrings use a looser version of the drag technique to achieve their flowing style. The natural brass and artisan copper provide a rustic, organic feel that is perfectly balanced by the shimmering enamel.

For a more subtle effect, apply several complimentary colors allowing them to swirl and pool. With a range of colors and the ability to layer and blend, you can achieve a customized and unique effect that will elevate any jewelry or craft project.

Ultimate paint is permanent to metal and dry to a durable enamel finish. It is a smooth flowing paint with a flawless finish, and cleans up with water. No sealing necessary! There is no end to the possibilities of what you can do with this paint by combining colors and techniques.

These bundles are is a great way to get your design process kick-started. It comes with a variety of natural brass and artisan copper blanks plus bright copper accent pieces to pair with your designs!
