When I think of hot air balloons, I think of all the fun colors on display! I just had to add some stripes of fun color to the hot air balloon charm at the center of this necklace.

Bring some color to your charms and pendants with Vintaj Patina paints. These Patinas dry fast and come in lots of different colors to get your imagination going. Becky added several different options as stripes of color on her hot air balloon charm. You can watch Becky paint this charm in a live video on our Facebook Page.
