- Black Magic VooDoo Gel by Dixie Belle
- White Magic VooDoo Gel by Dixie Belle
- Paint Brush
- Fuzzing Cloth
To begin, I added a base color to my earrings.
As you will see, I added a white base to one set and a black base to the other.
In order to do this I applied a gel stain by simply painting it on with a brush and then wiping back any excess in order to achieve my desired coverage and color.
Let the base coat dry before moving onto adding your designs.
For the earrings with the black base coat, I decided to use my White Chalkology Paste and the House Pattern Transfer pictured below.
To add your Chalk Couture Transfer to the surface of the earring, simply apply the transfer and cover it with the paste using a squeegee.
Once you are finished applying the paste, peel back the transfer to reveal the final product.
The next pair I did was white with gold paste accents.
Again – apply your transfer, add a layer of paste and peel back to reveal the final product.
Didn’t they turn out great!!
PRO TIPS: Be sure and turn the O ring to the back of the earring and lay 1 back to the right and the other to the left. Otherwise, one of the earrings will flip on you and show the back.
You can also paint and embellish both sides of the earrings if you’d like! Just be sure your first side is dry before moving onto the other.
