You might be wondering why this fabulous bezel is appearing under the title "Resin Repair."
It is one of my best examples of how to fix a mistake.
This bezel was designed by Fernando Dasilva, an extremely well known jewelry designer. He also added the leather embellishment and poured in Jewelry Resin.
Then he discovered the "mistake."
Overnight a little of the leather, which should have been completely encased in resin was sticking out of the surface. It may not have bothered everyone...but Fernando and I both felt it was very visible. Happily, I offered to REPAIR it!
I have showed you repair work on this blog already. It still amazes me. All I did was sand the surface of the resin until it was even again. See how scratched up I made it? I sanded and sanded until the area the leather popped out of was smooth again.
Then I mixed a small batch of Jewelry Resin and painted a glaze layer onto the entire piece.
The scratch and sanding lines magically disappear!
Learning how to repair a resin mishap will make working with resin less worrisome.
