Crafty fusion – a painted sea glass pendant in a wire crochet basket

It is always difficult to make your creations a little bit different and that is why I like to combine different crafts – I call it “Crafty Fusion”

I really liked the shape of this piece of sea glass and thought it would look nice in a wire crochet basket and then in a “that would be different” moment  I thought I would paint a rose on it.

I use 28ga Artistic Wire and a size 5.00 or 5.50 crochet hook, but this can be adapted to the thickness of the wire

Now, I don’t do tiny flower painting so this was a bit challenging.

I used DecoArt Multi Purpose Satin paint and it was easy to use and dried really quickly. It provides great adhesion on wood, metal, glass, terracotta, ceramics, paper mache, most plastic, fabric and canvas – wow what could be better than that?

Happy crafting

Gill
