Colour Me Happy
by: Dwyn Tomlinson
I fell in love with these pendants when I first saw them. They have the elegant look of tooled leather, even though they are wood.
However, when the artist that makes them pointed out that they can be coloured - and showed me a couple that she had done - I was fascinated!
Oil-based Sharpies are the secret!
The raised design lends itself to perfect "within the lines" colouring, and Oil-based sharpies give it rich colours!
You can pick up the oil-based sharpies at everywhere from Michael's to Walmart. Then just string on a leather cord or perhaps choose a silk string to match the colours you used (which is what I did.)
I chose happy, primary colours for this, but now that I'm looking at this, I think I might have to do another in my usual brooding and metallic colour choices.
