DIY Raven Belt by BlackBeltVampyre
DIY Raven Belt
What you'll need (and where I got it):

- Old metal belt with loops on it (Goodwill ~ $1)
- 7+ two-inch wooden medallions to glue the gems to (Michaels ~ $2 for a 2 pack)
- Metallic gold spray paint to paint the belt and wooden medallions, I used KRYLON (Michaels ~ $6)
- Easy Cast Resin (Michaels ~ $15-$20)
- Plastic cups to mix resin (Walmart ~ $3 for a bag)
- 2+ red ballpoint pens to color the resin gems, in this case I used COMFORT STIC (Staples ~ $2 for a box)
- Plastic palette for casting resin gems (Walmart ~ $5)
- Hot glue gun (I just had one lying around)
NOTE: Make sure you use coupons or check to see if you have any of these things already (saves money!) :foolsmoney: 

Steps (more or less):

- Basically, you follow the instructions to cast the resin gems (I also looked up a TON of youtube videos for beginner tips when it came to coloring the resin)
- spray paint the belt and wooden medallions gold
- Hot glue everything together
- Vuala!
So it's been about a year since the last journal entry... I'm obviously really good at keeping up with this stuff. 

Anyways! this past summer I went through a black and white photography phase (which I'll admit, I am still in) but I have not been keeping up with all of my sketches and whatnot for the past year or so. So I'm sorry if I am about to bombard anyone.
