Compact Mirror using Creative Paperclay® and Us Art Quest

Hi, it's Donna from Memes Art Place!
I am you designer of the day!

Today, I have a compact mirror we will be altering!
 Supply List
*Creative Paperclay®
*Compact Mirror
*Paint - Acrylic
*Perfect Pearls/Ranger

This is a very easy project and would be great for kids to make!

You start with a compact mirror-I picked this up from Micheal's for $2.00.
 Now you will just pop off the disc.
 Roll out some Creative Paperclay®
 You can turn you compact over into the Creative Paperclay® and push down. (I did put some glue in before pressing down, just to make sure it would stick after drying) Clean up the sides and now we take our rubber from Us Art Quest and press it into the Creative Paperclay®
 Look at the great impression the rubber from Us Art Quest has left!
 I used my Golden Fluid Acrylics and just painted it onto the surface. I then took a paper towel and dampened it and did a quick wipe. This is what was left behind. I did not want it to be all one color.
 Take your Perfect Pearls and using a paint brush paint the Perfect Pearls where you would like them. This will give you a very nice shimmer.
 Seal and enjoy!
Can you see the shimmer? I wish you could see this in person, the photo does not give you the full beauty of the rich color!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed this quick fun way to alter a compact mirror. I wish to Thank Us Art Quest for supplying the rubber used today!

If you would like to see what I am up to you can find me Donna at - Memes Art Place
