Many of you have asked how to make these beauties and Cat has answered! Here is the 411 on how to create your own decorative crowns by Cat-Arzyna!

 1-Using chipboard or thick cardstock-create your base. Make a circle for the bottom and run strips criss-cross from the sides.   2-Use IOD paper clay and decor moulds to make your decorative elements. Add clay to the moulds, remove and glue onto your base while they are still wet. Bend and shape for the crown as needed.   3-Once all of the appliques have been added, paint the entire project using Art Basics Heavy White Gesso from Finnabair. Allow to dry for a bit.   4-Next-add your choice of color in chalk paint, clay based or acrylic. (Clay based will take a bit longer to dry). Then add a glaze using equal amounts of 2 part water, 1 part paint.   5-Then finish off with Art Alchemy Wax by Finnabair in any color you wish. Another idea-you could add Artisan Powder instead of wax for a matter finish and it will show off the details just as beautifully too.
