Designer Challenge Part Two - Layering

Yesterday I showed you five different techniques to add colour to resin.  I am attempting to re-create a brooch I saw in a window in Paris this month.  Now we need to protect this layer.
As you can, see I added about 1/8 of an inch of Envirotex Lite resin to each pan opening to cover and protect this green layer from the next.  I have let this cure overnight.
Now I need to get some black onto the third layer.  When you look at the original brooch it seems like there is black paint suspended in the resin.  Fingers crossed that my black paint layer works out!  Claudine Hellmuth has a really dark black in her paint line.  I am sure when I cover it in resin that it will shine!
Later today I will cover this later with another 1/8 of an inch of resin.  I'll let everything cure for the weekend!  On Monday I should have the finished brooches!
Here is the original brooch again.  I am getting closer and closer!
