This unique, hand painted, Hair Clip is made from a lightweight resin, the colours I’ve used are:
Turquoise, Green, Yellow and Purple. All my pieces of jewellery are one of a kind, due to the nature of the paint, no two designs will be the same.
My Jewellery has a colourful abstract effect that is obtained by mixing the paint colours together. The colour combination and the amount of paint I use depicts the final result of each piece. Once the paint is dry it has a stunning opalescent and pearlescent honeycomb effect.
The paint and resin I use are non-toxic jewellery grade.
-The first step is to make a resin bezel, which I colour with Mica powder and glitter (gotta love a bit of glitter).
-I then pour the resin into a silicone mould and that takes 24 hours to cure.
-The next step is my favourite part of the process, this is where I do the hand-painting, I use an oil-based paint that takes between 3-5 days to dry.
-The next part of the process, which is the most trickiest part, is called doming. That’s where I pour clear resin over the paint to seal it, which gives it a glassy effect. This final layer takes around 24 hours to cure.
-Once the resin layer has cured, I sand and polish the piece.
Your Hair Clip will arrive in an organza bag within an eco friendly pillow box.
