From Paper Pulp to Jewelry

Here are a couple things I had been working on before I received my goodies from Arnold Grummer Paper Making. I used paper pulp, which I had been playing with for a while now but not being able to make paper, I went for the jewelry making with it. This first piece is a pin I made from molds. I can't show the mold because I packed it up to go out to my new shed I just had build and delivered. I haven't come across it yet to unpack.

I used paper pulp in the mold, painted it when dry, I then put Glossy Accents on it to protect it and make it stronger and then added the pin to the back with a good strong glue.



Here are the earrings I made also.


This one I still had the mold out so you can see what I used. Again I used paper pulp, painted them and then adhered them to each other with a strong glue. This time I used a wood hardener and dipped them a few times, let them dry between dippings and then used a lacquer on them to protect them even more. 

Since, I have received my package and have been playing around making paper. It is soooo much fun. Go check out   http://arnoldgrummerpapermaking.blogspot.com/ to see all the fun things you can do with paper pulp and don't forget their facebook page https://www.facebook.com/arnoldgrummerpapermaking?fref=ts. They have a ton of fun items to help make your paper making so easy and fun in their store.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy what I made.
