My splatter art necklace

The other day I posted a tutorial that I found on PS I Made This to make a splatter art necklace, and today I made my own version.

I started out with this not unpleasant £3 necklace from Primark - the key thing to look for is something with a strong shape and something fairly flat that the paint can easily and evenly cover. I then taped over the chain and the beads that separated the triangles to minimise the amount of paint that went on to them.

Then came the fun part - flicking paint! 
I used ordainary poster paint which you can buy from Wilko's. I found that the brushes that worked best were the ones with bristly, erm, bristles, rather than the softer ones, but using a variety of brushes helps create a cool effect.

Here is the final product:
