Envirotex Lite Napoleon

My worlds are colliding.
I have a few France related interests.  Napoleon is one of them. 
Doesn't this medallion look old?  It is tiny.  1 inch wide by 1 3/8 length.  Yet it has so much detail.
I made a mold of an old Napoleon pendant with EasyMold Silcone Putty.
I poured in some Envirotex Lite resin which I coloured with Black Opaque Pigment.
I sanded the edges and used Gilder Paste to colour the piece.  That's how I got all those beautiful metallic tones.
I placed the finished piece in this gold bezel.   I feel like I have a framed piece of miniature art!

  2. I've been itching to get into resin, but feel I need to finish what I started with metalsmithing before I start another medium. I love seeing how you made this wonderful pendant. Thanks so much for sharing.
