Painting on Jewelry

Welcome to another installment of ASK PLAIDIE LADDIE!

Plaidie LaddiePlaidie Laddie, loyal Plaid pooch and one of our blog contributors, wants to answer your most burning painting questions. Every week he’ll pick a question out of his virtual mailbag and answer it (with a little help from me, since he only has paws). This week’s question:

“Dear Plaidie Laddie, I love making jewelry and I’ve recently really gotten into painting. Can you give me some tips for painting on jewelry?” Marie C. from Florida

Painting on jewelry follows the same basic rule as any other kind of painting: use the right paint for your surface! If you’re painting on glass, tin or metal you want to use FolkArt Enamels. This paint is formulated to adhere to these non-porous surfaces. Plus, once cured, these painted pendants will look great for years! If you’re painting on ceramic, paper or a small piece of artists’ canvas, regular FolkArt Acrylics are your best bet. Have fun making your jewelry, we’d love to see what you come up with!
