Earlier this spring my hubby found this perfect set of acorns. Receiving them was better than six dozen roses!! I was so excited to do something special with them.
In order to make them stronger I brushed Envirotex Lite resin over them twice.
Then I pulled out a special product known as epoxy clay. Epoxy clay, like Envirotex Lite resin is a one to one mix ratio. Once you mix the two parts it becomes a very soft clay. You have about three hours to work with it. Then it air-dries rock solid! I placed some clay in this cabochon ring. My idea was to have the acorns sitting up in this black clay.
Then I had a happy accident. While attempting to smooth out one section of the clay base, I reached for this tiny plastic spoon on my table. I didn't check it and some of this green powder (Luminarte) was still clinging to the spoon base. It made a green mark on the clay.
I actually love the green....so I applied green Luminarte powder to all the black clay.
Now my acorns look like they are sitting on a grassy knoll! I can't wait to wear this ring!
