Magic 101

Oh I do love a good magic trick. Thought you should see how the IKATCHA collection comes together. It was a wonderful day in the sun on the deck painting, sanding, rubbing and polishing for some sweet results. Just sent off for tons of new colors. Can’t wait to play with those.  I always said one of the most amazing color adventures I ever had was in the hut of a Sari merchant in Madras. I had no idea that so many colors were possible. Although I will never achieve such a spectrum this experience is right up there. With every step the colors take on a new glow, appreciated but never to be repeated. Hmmmm….perhaps that is how I should approach life?….”each experience takes on a new glow, appreciated but  never to be repeated”. Meanwhile back to bracelets.

First a solid coat of black. Followed by a solid gold tone.The gold is then rubbed down to expose the original black coat.

Should we stop while we are ahead? Nope…let’s get crazy & paint  the entire bracelet with a serious coat of red.

I know it is scary. How could you even find the original two layers, you might ask.

You rub the heck out of it, that’s how. Now you can see. Bring on the magic, I say.

Then some serious rubbing and polishing guarantees a satisfactory result.

The red combo was just one of several happy members of the IKATCHA collection. Nice Saturday. Don’t you think?
