Picture of Spotty changeable paper necklace
Hi! In this instructable I'm going to tell you how to make this necklace. The pendant is changeable in a few ways. You can clip on an other pendant in no time or you can decide to turn the blacklight on. I hope you like it!

Step 1: What do you need

To make this necklace, you will need the following:

- thick paper (it's between paper and cardboard)
- wire
- brush
- closure
- chainlet
- round nose plier
- blacklight nailpolish topcoat

Step 2: Draw a shape

You need to start by drawing a shape. There are no big rules on this part, just draw a shape you like.

Step 3: Cut out your shape

Cut your shape out as precisely as possible.

Step 4: Tracing

Trace your cut-out ten times on the thick paper. If you don't have thick paper, you can also use regular printer paper, then you need to trace it twenty times.

Step 5: Cutting and glueing

Cut out all ten of the shapes and glue them on top of eachother. the thinckness it has here is the thickness your pendant will have. If you think it's too thin, you can always trace, cut and glue an extra shape on.

Step 6: Painting

Picture of Painting
For painting the pendants I used acrylic paint. I don't know if it works with other kinds of paint as well, I just really liked these colours.
Start by painting the front side and letting it dry. If needed, paint two layers. You can see the difference of one and two layers of paint by looking at picture three and four. 
When the front side is completely dry, paint the sides of your pendant. Your fingers will probably get a layer of paint too at this point. Let the sides dry. At last paint the back side and let it dry.
