How About a Blue Wash?

I mentioned in yesterday's post that I was going to try a white wash on these beads for a more tropical feel.

Well, when you can't find white paint, move on to something else.

In this case, I moved on to an acrylic craft paint called "sea breeze"! How fun!

It's still drying so I haven't attempted giving it a coat of glossy varnish yet, but thankfully, tomorrow is Friday and that means crafting can commence!

I'd love to hear your thoughts on the "blue wash" or the "sea breeze" wash on this bead. :)

I love that color. It reminds me of a turquoise ocean. I'm a beach girl so their right up my alley. Thanks for showing them!
