DIY Marbled Copper Stars.
Here’s the third DIY that corresponds with this month’s Glittery Hands Box. Since this month’s theme is ‘cosmic adventure’ I wanted to create something with a star them that used as much copper leaf as I could! I had some black and white Fimo hanging around in my craft room so thought I would put it to use making some adorable marbled stars, you could always use clay for this make if you haven’t got any Fimo.
You will need:
- Star Cutter*
- White and Black Fimo
- Copper Leaf*
- PVA Glue
- Paint Brush
*Products Can be found in the May Glittery Hands Box.
Roll out your Fimo, use a tiny bit of black and more white. Roll it and fold it in to get a beautiful marbled effect. Roll flat to a thickness of 4mm.
Take your star cutter and cut out a star shape, roll out your Fimo again to cut some more!
Make a hole at the top of one of your stars points, This will enable you to hang your star with pretty ribbon or string if you wish.
Pop your stars into the oven for 15mins at 50*C. This will dry them out.
Paint a little PVA Glue on to random sections of your stars, lightly brush on the copper leaf to the glued areas. Be very carefully, this is a fiddly job, copper leaf has a mind of its own!
Three pictures of this step weren’t necessary but I couldn’t help it. Copper!
Hang up your beautiful stars with some gorgeous string. Hand them around the house or add them to presents for an extra bit of bling!
