Yes, I have been making a lot of pendants lately.
Dimensional Magic is just too much fun. I can't help myself.
And this one makes me feel like a huge art nerd...I love it!
Remember this ModCloth colorwheel necklace I have posted about before?
I used that as my inspiration. But I actually put the colors in the correct order. What kind of art teacher could bear to wear an inaccurate color wheel necklace?!
(Although I'm thinking about trying another version using a washer shape like the inspiration piece. I used a solid disc because that's what I had on hand.)
Anyway, you want to make one?
wooden disc - mine's 1"
drill & 1/16 drill bit
craft paint - at least white, red, yellow, & blue
tiny paint brush
chain or ribbon
Drill a hole at the top of your disc, then paint it white and let it dry.
Next, place your dot sticker (you can get them in the office supplies section) in the center of your disc. Then cut VERY thin strips of masking tape. Use the strips to divide your disc into 12 sections.
(The tape is mostly covering my dot, so it's hard to see in the pic.)
Paint each section according to the color wheel below. (Source)
Here's some color mixing tips in case your art education growing up wasn't up to par... (which is the case for far too many people. Sigh.)
If you have the primary colors (red, yellow, blue) you can mix all the secondary colors.
Red + Yellow = Orange
Yellow + Blue = Green
Blue + Red = Violet
Then mix a primary and a secondary to get all of the tertiary colors.
Red + Orange = Red-Orange
Yellow + Orange = Yellow-Orange
Etc. (just follow the color wheel)
Once all sections are filled with color, carefully remove your tape & sticker.
And touch up any areas that my have bled.
When it's dry, top that bad boy with some dimensional magic and let it dry overnight.
Add a jump ring and a chain and you've got yourself a mini color wheel you can wear around town.
