 EnviroTex Lite® is the perfect way to finish off coasters.
 Ann-Butler-Designs-ETI-Faux-Quilted-Monogramed-Coasters-Step-16 Ann Butler Designs Blog Hopping with ETI

These are simple wooden coasters that I created with my Faux Quilting Stamps.  Below are instructions for applying the EnviroTex Lite®.  You can find complete instructions on how to create the monogrammed coasters on my blog.

Tape around the edges of the coaster (to prevent the resin from dripping).  Lay out some wax paper, then place the coaster on something  to elevate it.

Ann-Butler-Designs-ETI-Faux-Quilted-Monogramed-Coasters-Step-8 Ann Butler Designs Blog Hopping with ETI

Mix EnviroTex Lite® as directed on the package.  Measure equal parts resin and hardener in 2 separate cups.

Pour the hardener into the resin and mix thoroughly for 2 minutes.

Pour resin onto the coaster.

Use the stir stick to bring the resin to the edges, (the resin is self leveling).  Watch for any bubbles to rise and blow lightly to disperse them.  Let dry undistributed for 12 hours, and then peel the tape away.

Trim resin away from the edges if needed.  Let cure for 72 hours.

Resin Casted Rose Necklace

We would like to welcome guest blogger Irit Shalom.
Today she will share some beautiful color casted jewelry pieces.

Hi crafty friends Irit here...with a  fancy necklace and a ring made in no time (unless the beading time counts).
A few days ago I made a red rose for another project. As I had a lot of ETI High gloss finish in red, I made 3 roses and added whatever was left to another mold to make a focal piece for a necklace.



By the way, I made a hole with a needle after a few hours of hardening, but then I didn't use it as I made a layered focal piece, so I just covered the hole with a rhinestone. But it shows you that holes can be easy to make without any drills.
And this is my finished jewelry with a ring made from one red rose and a focal piece made with metal base and some add- ons.




I want to thank ETI and Ann Butler, who made this guest blog post possible!

who shows you how to create a lovely necklace...

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my post with a few jewelry piece
 using lovely printed tissue paper, ETI ULTRA - SEALER™ and then ETI Jewelry Resin.
Here is an easy way to glue tissue into your metal shape.
Cover the inside of the shape with ultra seal.


 Press the tissue inside, add a layer of ultra seal on the top of the tissue paper and let it dry.


Cut the tissue with your craft knife from inside. 


Add whatever  you like to the inner layer and cover with a mix of Jewelry Resin.
Add more embellishments over the partly hard resin and cover with a light layer over it.
Make the final  jewelry piece and wear it proudly.
