Mixed Media Jewelry! Let’s Create!

Hi friends! Today I have a fun mixed media jewelry experiment to share!

I found some fun paint on clearance and thought it would be perfect to make jewelry with. In today’s video I’ll show you how I did it!

Today I am going to share some technique I learned playing around with Pebeo Prisme Fantasy Paint. It is an alkyd based paint that leaves a very glossy honeycomb or hammered effect when dry. We will use inexpensive items to make our jewelry.

Note, I found good prices on everything you need at Blitzy and linked them up below. These are affiliate links which means I earn a small percentage of the sale but it doesn’t cost you anything extra:) Thank you for your support!

I bought this set of 12 Pebeo Prisme Fantasy paints on clearance for $14 (normally $39!) so if you can I recommend using a coupon at a big box store or shopping around online for a good deal. Since I am doing small jewelry pieces I preferred to get the variety of small bottles to fewer large bottles but you can decided based on your needs. I did find a couple deals on the sets at Blitsy:
Prisme Fantasy: (honeycomb finish)
Moon Fantasy (hammered finish)
*Blitsy also carries the large bottles but I recommend starting with the smaller bottles to see if you like it because the big bottles, although on sale, are a larger investment!

Other Supplies:
Bottle caps you can get flattened or regular bottlecaps in lots of sizes and colors at Blitsy
Cabochons/frames/ trays (you can get these at a craft/jewelry supply store, mine were 25 cents each from a stamp show) I have purchased inexpensive tray charms from Mod-Podge too
Chain
Beads
Bails (or wire for making our bottlecap charms into pendants)
Metal filigree or charms such as gears
Jump rings/wire
Jewelry tools such as pliers 
Acrylic blanks or other sturdy substrates for metal collage pieces.
Glue: E600, Goop or liquid welder for glass or metal, Beacon 3-in-1 for plastic
Anything you darn well want can be used!

You might also want some oil or alkyd paints to use with the Prisme Fantasy paints because they do not have mica in them and provide a nice contrast!

Tip! The Prisme Fantasy paints take 72 hours to cure, handling them too soon will result in fingerprints or dents in the paint surface (don’t ask me how I know!) I hope you enjoyed this fun and free workshop, happy crafting!

  1. Very Cool; will keep an eye out for this product… I had never heard of it before. You had me with “marbling”. Thanks Lindsay!

  2. I love when you share the oops moments and then make them work. So many people only post perfection and that is just not how most of us make art. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
    I have this paint and your suggestions for use have opened a whole new set of ideas!
