Beer Mat Hanger

This hanger is made from a beer mat and a couple of jigsaw pieces. Started with a coat of black acrylic on the beer mat and then put a couple of layers of clear utee. Then added random sprinkles of differenct colours of Suze Weinberg Brightz UTEE powders to give a mottled effect. While still warm I used a Studio by Sculpey texture mat as a stamp to add some texture. I stamped the shield and fluer de lys onto metal and then embossed them and cut them out before sticking them onto the mat.

Painted both jigsaw pieces with metallic acrylic paint. The first piece I stamped with a flower stamp and then coloured with viva precious metal paints. The second jigsaw piece was triple emobssed with green utee and then stamped using the same texture plate as before. When dry it was give a coat of viva inka gold to make the pattern stand out. Three charms were added to the bottom. Recycled some old jewellrey for the beads to use on the wire at the top and between the jigsaw pieces.
