Enamel Accents Black & White Charm Bracelet

Enamel Accents Black & White Charm Bracelet

A great way to use Enamel Accents.

Technique by Debbie Tlach

Tip: keep a scrap piece of paper nearby to establish flow before squeezing onto charms. If you make a “mistake,” Enamel Accents easily washes off the type charm while it is still wet. Once you are finished making your design do not move it. Let it dry overnight.


Enamel Accents Charm Bracelet Step 1

Step 1: To start all charms: Working over the Non-Stick Craft Sheet, squeeze a generous amount of Enamel Accents in white into type charm. Let it seep to edges or “pull” the puddle over with a pin.

Step 2: To make a bull’s eye: Squeeze out a large drop of black Enamel Accents, then drop a slightly smaller drop of white Enamel Accents into the center of the black dot. Alternate the color of the drops making each successive dot smaller than the last. Let dry.

Step 3: To make a small flower: Add a drop of Enamel Accents in black, then put the pin in just outside the edge of the black circle and “pull” in towards the center of the circle. Pull pin out and wipe with a tissue. Repeat on the opposite side of the black circle. Then repeat on a 90° angle on both sides. Drop a small dot of White Enamel Accents into the center of the black ‘flower’.


 

Step 4: To make large flower: Make a bull’s eye by following the directions above. With a pin pull in all around the edge of the flower. Let dry. You can add more “petals” if desired.


 

Step 5: To make Butterfly: Start by making a bull’s eye, dropping a black then a white then another drop of black. Then make flower shape with 2 large petals on the top and 3 smaller ones on the bottom by using the pin to pull the sides in at different intervals. Place the pin inside the black circle of one of the large top petals and pull it out, making a “wing”. Repeat on the other side. Put the pin inside the lower right side of the black circle and pull it out and down slightly to make the lower right side of the wing. Repeat on the other side. Put the pin in the bottom part of the butterfly and pull downward to make the ‘tail’. Put a drop of white Enamel Accents on the craft sheet and dip the pin into it. Use the small drop at the end of the pin to make accents on wings by dipping it into the black wing. Wipe the pin with a tissue and place a drop of black Enamel Accents onto the craft sheet and use the pin dot technique to make small dots around the butterfly.


 

Step 6: To make a “star”: Make bulls eye, then manipulate edges by pulling them in and out as in the butterfly to make star. Use pin dot technique to make radiating dots in black.


 

Step 7: To make a heart: Add a large drop of black Enamel Accents, then stick the pin in on the outside of the black circle on the top and pull down towards the center of the circle. Pull the pin out gently then wipe. Stick the pin in the black circle in bottom center and pull down to create a point. Variation: Create a bulls eye then create a heart shape.


 

Step 8: To make a dove: Create a heart shape tilted to the right. Stick the pin into the black of the top right side of the heart, pull the pin outward and to the right to make a beak. Pull the white, slightly under the beak inward, to make the bottom of the head. To make the wing, stick the pin in the white, just above the tail, pulling it in and to the right, this makes a “petal” on the top. Put a pin in the white just outside the left side of this “petal”. Pull the petal inward. This creates two “petals”. Put a pin in the white just outside one of the petals and pull it inward and to the right (creating two “petals” from the one). Repeat with the remaining petal. You will have a total of 4 petals. Create the bottom of the wing by pulling these petals outward. Stick the pin into a black petal and pull it toward the left and slightly downward, wisping it out. Pull the pin out, wipe, repeat with the other petals to make a “feathered” wing. Wipe the pin with a tissue and place a drop of white Enamel Accents onto the craft sheet and dip the pin into it. Use the small drop at the end of the pin to make to make a small dot for the dove’s eye.


 

Step 9: Put together bracelet by attaching circle & bar closure to opposite ends of a length of chain. Attach Type Charms and circle closure pieces (using them as charms) with jump rings.
