i love them, how do you do the two toned colours in the flowers and leaves?

I paint mine to make them two tone also do you do it on the nail or on foil then stick on.

Thanks

to get a 2 tone effect i make a little indentation with my brush or a tool when im modeling the main colour, then i come back with the second shade and place it in the indent. use a slightly wetter mix for the second shade.all the nail work i do is direct on the nail. some of the jewellry components i do ,[ the charm bracelet for instance] i do on thick polythene , its better than foil because if you draw your shape on a bit of paper first you can place it under the poly and be able to follow the outline with your acrylic.

this was done on shrink plastic. you can draw your design on and add lettering and even background colour. then you put it in the oven for a few minutes and it shrinks. then the 3 d decoration is added with coloured acrylic.

Where do you get this shrink plastic from and what do you draw your design/lettering on with?

Sounds cool :cool:

you can get it at hobbycraft or similar stores. you can draw on it with ordinary coloured pencils for shading in the background etc . for the lettering i use a permanent marker with a fine tip. you have to plan your design in advance as it will be about seven times smaller after heating.

before i came into nails i used to teach textile art at adult level and i have tried about every product known to man at hobbycraft. i was back doing some teaching work last weekend and it was great. also ive been asked to do a workshop with some A level art students to teach them how i make jewellery with acrylic. i love nails but i still love teaching and i hope to combine them both one day.

i dont usually sell my stuff, it takes quite a long time to make , beadwork and 3 d acrylic both tend to be slow going .so i think i would probably price myself out of the market even on a very modest hourly rate, however i do tend to make it as gifts for my family , whether they like it or not!!
