So the pictures covered with Magic gel turned out nice and fully cured. I read somewhere that they stay tacky but it is pretty cold in the house again, so maybe that is why they are dry. I wonder if it will change when they get warm or when spring warms up.. But so far so good. Will have to take some pictures coming weekend when I have more time. They are very shiny, maybe I can put them on the scanner.
So I made earrings out of the tree picture pendants. With an attempt to wire wrap, or at least make decent little loops. One earring came out a lot longer than the other so I had to do it again, and I am afraid I mauled the silver colored wire with my little pliers. I know you can protect the tip with some paper tape to prevent the wire from getting beat up and tarnish later on. But I thought this would be quick. Not so, but all done now and I will proudly wear them to work tomorrow. I added some pretty light blue crystals as a dangle from a badly strung bracelet my husband got for me in Taiwan. Contrary to what you might think, he had trouble finding cheap things "made in Taiwan" there. I guess they are all shipped to the rest of the world.
So now I have to re-string the rest of the beads into a necklace.
Tomorrow night I am supposed to go boating on the Schuylkill but it is supposed to rain again. Bummer, we will never get in race shape with all this weather we've been having !
