Furthea's Badge – Completed (1 Comment)
This is the first of the commission badges and the first one I’ve done using this particular method. The little bits of ‘glimmer/lighter/textured looking things’ on the outfit are actually a special glimmering watercolor wash that is over the basic copic colors. This particular badge is on the higher end. It’s also larger than the usual badges. I need to stick to a 4.5 x 5.5 size. 😀 It’s easier on my laminator. It’s laminated with a heat laminator which I use for badges now. I also wanted to take a picture of my method of attachment. I use metal grommets to secure the ring into the badge that also has a badge clip attached.
AS for the earring… those ARE actual dice beads on chains serving as an earring. The glimmer near them is a transparent rubber jewelry beading thread that’s very strong and … transparent. It’s not noticeable except when a flash hits it. I was going to add a little wing charm to the collar piece, but mine were all too big to use.
Extra bits like that cost extra. I can add 3D effects like flowers, necklaces, etc.
