I was so super honored to be asked specifically by Susan to help her celebrate her blog-versary... I chose to go nautical with my spoon.
First I started off by aging the spoon with a solution of vinegar and steal wool. Put the steal wool in a jar of vinegar and allow it 24 hours to "cure". Then brush the vinegar mixture over your spoon.
To finish off the spoon I used UmWowStudio's August handmade embellishment kit "Beach Combing" as well as the add on kit All Resin All The Time. Other products include a netting ribbon by May Arts to simulate a fishing net, cheese cloth, Tattered Angels glimmer glaze in Waterfall and Coconut Shell, Helmar's quick dry adhesive, and collected shells from the beach!
In this last photo you can really see the dimension and beauty that the spoon has.
