Watercolor paper pendants

I've been playing around
making watercolor paper pendants.

I made one a few weeks ago,
 that you can see here.

I wanted to make some more,
but  had trouble with all of them.
The polycrylic kept bubbling up
when I put them in the toaster oven to cure.
I don't know if I put the polycrylic on too thick or what.

I don't mind some imperfections,
so I will wear these.

Here is a photo of five of the better pendants.
(I made 4 more but they turned out really bad.)

These are made from only 2 layers of watercolor paper,
instead of 6.
(Maybe that made a difference in how they turned out.)
I added some Japanese cut paper, that a friend gave me, to each one.
For some I added small round acrylic gem(s).

This is a close up of the largest one,
about 2 in. by 3 in.

Smaller ones are below...

I hope all of you have a wonderful

Savor the Day!

I think they are beautiful! You can match any outfit you have with these pendants. Did you add an enamal finish to them? They look durable.

Those are really cool! I especially love the last one! Isn't it fun to experiment and keep the experimented on pieces?
