The thing about neon is that it doesn't blend with other colours. It is what it is - eye popping colour that stands out a mile. The trick to wearing it successfully is to wear just a touch of it so that you don't glow like a neon glow stick. Add just a couple of neon accessories like a bangle and belt to a plain outfit and you'll hit a good balance and still be in fashion.
I've had a bit of fun making neon resin bangles and rings over the last few days using some retro bangle and ring shapes - they suit the neon colours perfectly!
But if you feel a little intimidated by the full on glow of these electric colours and still want to be in fashion, you can compromise and choose pastel neon like the ones I cast in my first session. They are still neon coloured, but just not as intense.
Another way of toning down the glow is by adding some marbling. This retro faceted ring is still neon but not quite as "in your face".
I got a little more bold with my adventures with each casting session. The greens got stronger and so did the pinks.
And stronger still....
