Supplies I used

These are the supplies I'd suggest for the project! Each one I've used and loved working with. If you purchase any of the items through the links I do receive a small commission. Thank you!

  • Pendants.

  • Watercolor Paper. I've been using this watercolor paper for YEARS and LOVE IT. I find this watercolor paper easier to work with than most and I love how the colors lay on it. 10/10 would recommend.

  • Watercolor Paint Set. This has been my go-to watercolor set for over 10 years. It's the first professional watercolor set I ever used and I love to take it with me everywhere! If I could only get one set this is the one!

In Conclusion

I based my watercolor necklace based on a bigger watercolor painting I did. These mini paintings can make great personalized gifts and they're a lot of fun to make! Sometimes painting smaller is a challenge but it also can be faster!

Enjoy your new one-of-a-kind, necklace! Be sure to tag @peacefulpaintdrop on social media to show off your creation!
