my first tutorial, let me know what you think =]
I had some spare pieces of lace I used for another pair of earrings and came up with these =]
What you'll need:
+ mod podge (I use mod podge matte)
+ jewelry adhesive (super glue works too)
+ clay roses (sorry this how-to doesn't include how I make these!)
+ paint brush
+ heavy lace
+ needle (not in photo)
+ earring posts (not in photo)
+ some kind of surface that glue can come off of(I use trace paper, baking sheets are good too)
+ tweezers (optional)
Next, use your paint brush to apply mod podge (I use mod podge because it acts a sealant and finish to help protect the lace) evenly to the lace on one side, then leave to dry.
Make sure you lift the lace and place it in a spot that has no glue while it dries. This helps to prevent from sticking to your trace paper/baking sheets.
Flip the lace over, and repeat.
Tweezers may be helpful here to maneuver the lace around and prevent getting glue on your fingers! =]
