Bezel Wire and Resin - A Tutorial For Experienced Resin Users Part FOUR


When I left you yesterday my resin filled bezel heart was happily curing on my warm desk.  Today I removed the double-sided tape back.
The back looks great...just what I was hoping for!  You can see that the extra over-pour of resin (see yesterday's post) peeled away very easily.  What you can't see is that the back of my piece now has a very thin layer of sticky residue.  The double-sided tape leaves this behind.  In the past I have tried using all sorts of glue and residue removers to get it off...none very successfully.  So now I do something better.....
I made one final little batch of Jewelry Resin.   I painted it on as a glaze layer right over the entire back of my piece.  No more sticky residue, it is under the new glaze layer!  I will let this cure 24 hours and then I will design my final post with a finished piece of jewelry to show you!

  1. Ah, so thats how you fix the residue issue. I drove myself crazy after trying double sided tape when you mentioned it in another post :)

  3. How do you clean resin from your paintbrush? - it drives me crazy and all my brushes get set and stiff in resin - I hate it when that happens - I would love to glaze my pieces with resin - helllllp please

  4. Hi Neena, I don't believe you can clean the brushes...so I always buy very inexpensive ones and throw them away after a project. I do try and recycle/reuse the wood handles though!
