Watch Case Pendant: Round 2

An update to yesterday’s post:
I had another go at the watch cases this morning and the 3 words for the day are thin to win. I didn’t try to fill the whole case with embossing powder this time, just a thin layer.

Although I thought it would’ve been nice to have the tiny pencil encased completely in acrylic, I don’t mind the relief effect of it half in and half out. The background image is an old book cover- modified, (obviously).

The other watch case holds a funky vintage earring and some neat old postage stamps, two of several little freebies tucked into one of my purchases from whyte. I should warn you that most papers turn pretty dark in this process. The colors of the stamps were more vivid than they are once baked in the powder.

Another little nugget: keep toothpicks handy! They are perfect for readjusting any floaters right out of the oven before the goo hardens.

I struggled with posting this last photo of my total loss from yesterday, why break your heart? But here it is anyway. This cowboy image was cut from a vintage map. I didn’t feel comfortable reproducing the art as it wasn’t public domain, so I took my chances with the original. The backside of this watch case leaked the hot goo all over the place and I was unable to salvage it or the image, and believe me I tried. Are you as sad as I am?
