Resin Repair - Sanding Away Bubbles

 This John Bead bezel with embedded Japanese paper looks fantastic in person.  
I really like this colour palette!
 I taught a special introduction to Jewelry Resin class last week at John Bead and I had to work quickly to get all the information covered!
I demonstrated how to mark your pour lines on your measuring cup in advance so it is easy to see those lines after you add in your two resin making liquids (hardener and resin.)
 As the class teacher, I didn't have time to babysit my own samples.  So I was sad to get home and see bubbles in my very nice bezel.  One hot breath would have knocked these bubbles right out if I had seen them!
 So here is what I did.  I sanded the surface till I got rid of those bubbles!
Here is the sanding at the half way point. 
It took a little time, I don't enjoy sanding....but when it was done you would not believe that all I did was pour a little more Jewelry Resin right over this sanded dull scratchy surface.
It is as though the sanding never took place!  It is clear as glass again with no extra work on my part!  This is a super simple resin repair!
