Vintaging Earrings

Alright, I know there has been quite a bit of craft posts lately, but I got too acrylic paint happy lately, so there will be more to come, and I kinda of accidently did this one. I went to Walmart because I was bored. Since I’ve been on such a jewelry buying kick, (I got conned into having a Lia Sophia party and it all went downhill from there.) I ended up buying a set of three dangley earrings. They had a Bohemian look to them, so I decided to buy them.

And then I got them home, put them on and realized they were way, and I mean WAY, too shiny. I dont have anything to compare to them and they’re not even gold or silver, just a cheap metal.

See, too shiny!

So I took the foam paintbrush I had and dabbed it into the black paint, then dabbed it on some cardboard to get rid of some excess paint. Then took to lightly dabbing the earrings, back and front.

Dab, dab, dab

Look how pretty they look now! Notice I didn’t cover them completely. I didn’t want black earrings, after all.

And then I took to doing it to the gold pair, too.

Even better in gold vintage!

And now I have new earrings! Love them! Took less than three minutes and dry time (which was pretty much instant because there was little paint used).
