Altered Art - Cog And Vine Pendant
Disposable Mixing bowl or cup
Altered Art Pendant Frame
This Altered art project makes a fun and interesting necklace pendant.
Start by selecting a suitable background image, for this project we printed some green vines onto some computer paper.
Cut your paper background out to fit into the altered art pendant frame. Glue the image to the frame using some white craft glue, give the front of the image a coat of glue at the same time and this will act as a sealer so that the ink does not run.
Once the glue has completely dried it's time to layout your cogs and watch workings. You can buy altered art watch workings from the link below, but alternatively for smaller projects you could recycle an old broken watch by taking it apart.
Once you are happy with the layout, pour a small amount of resin onto the top of the pendant, allow it to settle into the corners before blowing out any air bubbles with a straw.
Once it has set add a chain, ribbon or beads for a beautiful modern altered art pendant.
