Here is a sweet fairy ring. I am sure you might look at it and think it was my original idea to make a ring featuring this great artwork from the Crafter's Companion
. The fairy image is embedded in a layer of Jewelry Resin. It domed very nicely if I do say so myself.
This ring is actually a repair challenge. Some time ago I filled this bezel ring with resin clay. Resin clay cures rock hard. It was my intention to add crystals to the clay...but I was unable to complete the task and the clay cured unadorned. Did I mention it is now solid?
My first step to save the ring was to apply some tissue paper to the surface.
I covered the tissue paper with a thin glaze of Jewelry Resin
and let it cure.
Then, the secret layer.
My fairy is a rub-on. So I rubbed it onto the surface and then carefully applied my final doming layer
of Jewelry resin.
I think it turned out super! Consider trying this technique with rings or pendants you may not like anymore!
