For this bangle, I mixed Beacon Fast Finish with some chocolate brown pigment re-inker and used it to stain my bangle. I got impatient and used my heat gun to speed the drying along and it bubbled up and made those neat white speckles on the wood.
When the stain was dry, I added liquid glue to the flat areas one at a time and added Bronze Crushed Glass Glitter and allowed it to dry. One. At. A. Time. No, I did not enjoy the waiting!
Then guess what I did. Yes, I added Glossy Accents to the glitter, one. area. at. a. time.
It was worth the wait, because this bangle is cool as! It has a distressed feel, but not at all vintage, I think it looks very modern and I do not think it looks like a "craft" project at all.
