Yeah! I saved the kokeshi bezels!
Whew. I am so glad I kept my cool and didn't throw these away.
Yesterday I showed you my over-pour incident. It's been a long time since I have made a "resin mistake" involving all my bezels.
A few of you wrote in with ideas. Thank you! Here is what I posted back:
I do believe in this instance...I just over poured. Usually when I want to add a "dome" I pour my resin into a squeeze bottle so I can carefully drip resin onto a surface. This time....I just dribbled from a cup...too much, too fast. Lesson learned....speed is not your friend with precision resin work!
But you can easily save mistakes like these! I let the resin cure for just under 12 hours. At this stage it is still soft and easily trimmed with an blade or scissors.
I ran my blade around the rim and peeled the excess away!
Isn't that a wonderful fix?
You have to do it early though...if I had waited 24 hours I would have had to use a sanding tool.
