My festive pendant turned out great! The image I choose was from a vintage Christmas card I purchased in Paris in the spring. I had to tweak it a little in photoshop before I could use it in such a small setting.
Okay. How did I get to this point.
In yesterdays post I showed you how I sealed my paper image with several coats of decoupage medium to protect it.
My next step was to add some glitter glue around the edges of the image. I always love this effect.
Then I did the first of two resin pours. I poured Envirotex Lite
into the bezel until it was half full. Roughly 1/8 of an inch depth. I let that cure for about 12 hours.
At the 12 hour mark, the surface is relatively hard...but you can damage it. I carefully added some glitter pen markings and highlights.
Then I did my final pour of resin. See how my glitter pen markings look like they are suspended in glass? Two pours are always the best, especially when working in a fairly deep bezel like this one.
