Here they are! Even better than I had planned! My images of the famous Klimt painting are from a paper napkin and now they look like they were specially embedded unto the slice.
Yesterday I showed you one layer of glaze on the napkin on the agate slice.
When that cured I added some extra markings with my gell markers to highlight sections of the images. I then applied a second glaze layer of Jewelry Resin
. I know many of you are waiting to get your hands on this new resin! The fact that it de-gasses and cures this crystal clear is why my piece looks so amazing!
I got asked a few questions that I'll answer here for everyone.
"Where do I get my napkins?"
I never pass a kitchen specialty store without popping in to see if they have any interesting napkins. I also hosted a napkin exchange gathering a few years ago when 12 women each brought 12 different napkin packs to the gathering which we traded. That was a great way to build my collection.
"Do the agate slices come pre-drilled?"
Some do...and I recommend getting those as it saves you lots of work later. The slice on the right was pre-drilled. However, the slice on the left was not so it allowed me to work any which way I wanted. I chose to glue a piece of metal filigree to the back to create two new attachment points.
I am very excited with these two samples! I'll turn them into something wearable soon!
