It's raining and raining and raining here in Kolkata!!
More than half of the city is flooded!
Continuously !

The days are so gloomy and  drab that I needed my share of fun and colors!

And I had both today! I thought of refashioning an old and faded bangle !

You'll need :-

An old Bangle / wooden bangle 

Acrylic colors 

Paint brush 

Loads of news paper (cause this can get messy  )

My old bangle


Bright Acrylic colors



Steps :-

1. Evenly paint the bangle with a light color as the base , I used a very light blue.Put two coats of the base color.

Let this dry for at least half an hour  , one hour would be the best !

2. Start with the darkest color and proceed towards the brighter colors for the effect !

3. Dip the paint brush in water so that it is wet a bit, then dip the brush in the bottle of the color 


and SPLASH!


splatter the color on the bangle one at a time !


Now decide which kind of look do you want :-


for different colors to be prominent individually follow these steps 


a)Splatter each color and let that dry for half and hour and then repeat this for every color.


letting each color dry for half and hour.



For the kind of look I have 

The abstract mixed color kind of look

you just have to splatter the paint when the previous paint is still wet 


you'll have those small marbled effect !


when you are finished let it dry for at least an hour or two.


I like this pic !



The marbled effect
 Be prepared to be covered with a lot of paint !






You can see the roads are submerged !





And the best thing is that each one would be different and unique!

I love the way this looks! 

Had a lot of  fun  splashing and splattering colors!

I was feeling as giddy and childish like a kindergarten kid after I was done splattering!

And it sure did brighten my day !


But this sure was a hell for the glitters on the  nail art  I had !
