creative hairclips using copic markers.

hello everyone and have i got something different to use your copics with today!

Over an the mad for markers monthly challenges blog there is a challenge to create something different not a card or layout.

So this took a lot of thinking about so i chose to decorate hair clips using copic markers.

Firstly let me show you the match book i made to gift wrap them in.
I used some kraft card, a some odd girl stamp and of course i coloured with copics. (C5,7,R24,Y8)

Here are the hair clips i made. I will pop instruction below the pics on how i made them.

To get this look i used 2 hair clip bases and 2 cabochons. I took the back of each cabochon and dotted on different coloured copic markers
Here are the colours i used.

Once all the colours had bled into each other and dried i put a thin layer of glossy accents over the colour. i was going to use clear nail polish but as the copics are alcohol based the nail polish bleeds into the copics and ruins the pattern. so as glossy accents are water based this works great.
Once the layer of glossy accents has dried i then took some silver holographic nail polish and layered this on top. then a coat of plain silver nail polish. this gives that great stain glass window effect.
