These fall earrings were really fun to make and I love how they turned out. Often times larger earrings are heavy, but because I paper-mached these they are really light and easy to wear.
To start off with, I used my ScanNCut to cut out this shape out of a thin piece of chipboard...it happens to be a Christmas ornament shape that's built into the machine. Shhhh, don't tell.
Next, I took a lot of layers of ripped up tissue paper and adhered it to the shape with Gel Medium. I allowed it to dry between layers and just continued to build it up to the thickness I wanted.
Next, I mixed up some of the Gelatos Color of the Week, Cinnamon, and a little bit of Glaze and applied it to the earring bases. I allowed it to dry and then repeated that process until it was the desired look I wanted.
After they had thoroughly dried overnight, I took just a tiny bit of the Gold Texture Luxe and applied it to the earrings. Oh how I love Texture Luxe!
