dirtystory is a project by former-microbiologist, Michelle. She started experimenting with materials after paying way too much for a pair of earrings that she later realized were decorated with rub-on transfers.
Michelle starts her process by imaging what would look good on a wrist, then designs in Photoshop. She uses an image transfer technique and coats each piece several times with crystal clear, waterproof, glass-like lacquer. It really works! My arm and cuff have yet to turn green, even though the rain.
