How To Make a Cat Necklace Step 3, 4 & 5

Here is my first ever hand painted cat necklace - I'm documenting the progress on my blog and soon will post this necklace for sale in my shop: Step 4. Glaze and protect the finished handpainted wooden cat disc with Liquitex Gloss Medium & Varnish which makes it nice and shiny, but not sticky!

Step 5. Apply E6000 adhesive to the silver bail and attach to the back of the wooden disc.

Gluing the bail onto the wooden disc

Step 6. Hand paint my name and the date on the back of the wooden disc - it's extra special now, in all ways!

Soon, I'll be posting this necklace and lots more in my shop:


I am a self taught intuitive artist currently living and working in the desert valley of Southern California surrounded by ancient oaks and an elfin forest. I live in a home created by my husband that we share with our cat and dog, Abby and Spartacus. Gnomes, aliens and fairies have also been spotted here. I’ve been drawing since age two and giving intuitive soul readings since 2008.
