I have really enjoyed exploring with Tonja's silkscreens in the studio lately!  I thought I would show you are very simple and eye catching way to create a "coloring book" style pendant.  I used Chameleon Pens (which are pricey) but I really like the way I can apply control in tiny spaces and still get that great translucence of alcohol inks!  

  1. Create a white pendant of your choice and use a silkscreen from Tonja's Treasures using black paint.
  2. Bake your pendant on the clay's recommended setting and allow to cool.
  3. The Chameleon pens are alcohol ink based pens with a small nib and a large nib on each pen.  
  4. Use the small nib for coloring in little details and the large nib for the larger spaces.  
  5. You can color in as much as you like- or leave a bit of white to give some great contrast.
