I wasn't too happy with the crowns I made for the Sun Queen - they both were a little too heavy I think. I tried to modify the sun but once I cut out the corona, it started to fall apart because it was too brittle. I added a few crystals and a charm to the crystal crown but not really pleased. When this happens, I go back to the drawing board and start from scratch. I went through my lace drawer and found this piece of lace I thought would make an interesting crown. It wasn't quite long enough, so I spliced a piece of another lace as a border. It is light and open and regal looking IMHO. It started life as off white so I painted it with some gold metallic dimensional paint. It made the lace very stiff which was good but some of the white showed through so I added some gold metalic Alcohol ink. Ok but didn't cover as well as I hoped so I got out the new Ranger Vintaj Patinas-cinnabar, agate and ochre. Added some Perfect Pearls Sunshine while they were drying and WOW! Looks like tarnished gold. Added some flatback heat set crystals and a small sun charm and she likes it! And so do I. Now I guess I have to make dolls for the other two crowns.
