Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden Tiara
I love diamond spike tiaras. Every royal family owns at least one of this style of tiara. The Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden wears one quite frequently, and it is hers which inspired this tiara. I made a post on this tiara back when I made it quite some time ago, but I've recently taken some new pictures of it, as I'm taking an Adobe InDesign class at the moment, and decided for my final that I wanted to make a book of my tiaras. I had my boyfriend take a bunch of pics of me wearing this gold and sequin-covered thing, as it's my most grand, royal tiara I've made. I've added some nice filters to the pic for the sake of the blog, but for my book, I want to make it look very old. I just need to find a photoshop effect that adds a film grain and a sepia tone to the picture. I know that is available on Photoshop, but for the life of me can't remember where it is.
This tiara is made out of polymer clay and wire that have been spray painted gold. Spray paint sticks incredibly well to polymer clay, so there is no need to go out and buy expensive colors of metallic polymer clay. Large stick-on rhinestones adorn each "spike", and silver star sequins litter the front of each spike.
