WOYWW - 17 April

Hello, and welcome to my blog for WOYWW, that time of the week when we go visiting to see what everyone's up to via Julia's blog.

This week, once again, I'm not working with paper or card.  (I will be blogging about how last week's pendants turned out - I've been busy making more!)  Here you can see the little photo frame, bought for £1.50, that I've "antiqued" with layers of acrylic paint and am about to give a coat of floor wax. 

The Klear (now sold as Pledge multi-surface wax) is my secret weapon.  I bought it originally to use for the caught in crystal technique but discovered that it has other uses, such as making faux ivory look polished or for getting a nice soft sheen on polymer clay.  I've even used it as an adhesive. 

Anyway, I'm going to blog and run as I'm away to see what you're all up to.  Thanks for stopping by!

Crafty hugs,

Keren

I was just thinking about Klear yesterday and wondered if they still made it - thanks for the information:)

The frame is going to be fab.

I have heard of someone else using Klear in crafting but I can't remember what they did with it. Are there youtube videos showing what you can do with it do you know?
I will be back to see all you have been doing
Have a great WOYWW today and enjoy the rest of your week

Crikey, I can remember polishing my floors with this many years ago. Before Children and Grandchildren of course! The frame looks exciting.

I keep forgetting to buy more floor wax. I use it with Fimo the most, but I understand it works great with PearlEx and other things too. And to think I used to only use it for waxing floors.

Love the frame, I imagine it will be gorgeous when you get done with it!
