The wind-bell decoration


Hi everyone!  Madoka here.  I would like to share  my first work as Guest Designer.

This is called "Furin" in Japan.

It's a wind-bell which is hung under the eaves and makes a sound when receiving a wind. It is made of glass or metal so that it makes cooler-feeling sound.

Japanese enjoy the sound and go through a sticky hot summer.


I added a design to a water-clear “Furin" with Paper Crafter Crayons™.


I shaved Paper Crafter Crayons™.


 I put it in the glass of the wind-bell and I add heat and dissolve it.

I rolled it constantly to attach design uniformly.





I painted a white paper  which I cut into long pieces with  Gelatos® and Gelatos Double scoop® .

And blended the colors with waterbrush.


 I applied Glass Bead Glitter Gel  to the surface and dried it.

   It glittered and is very beautiful!


And  painted it  with Glaze and put a transparency on it.


Another one painted with Gelatos® after I embossed it using a stamp.

After that I made it with the same process some time ago.


Pasted together that.

I  decorated  the  wind-bell with the embellishments such as  flowers and stones.



 Thank you for your time.
