Nunn Design Winter Collection Projects

The new ornate flat tags in the Nunn Design catalogue are ideal charms!  They are part of the collection I will be giving away next week.
I have been wanting to use some imagery of Catherine the Great in a resin project.  These new tags made me think of royalty because they are indeed ornate.
I made a photocopy of them so I could use a paper template to cut out my images.


Once my images were in place I sealed them with three layers of decoupage medium.  I was careful to let each coating dry between applications.
The tags are shallow.  I decided to brush on a top coat of Envirotex Lite resin.  Remember, Envirotex Lite is perfect for projects like these.  One coat of this resin is equal to 50 coats of varnish!
 I love my new charms!

  1. I never thought about making photocopies of the bezel!! I always press the bezel into the paper and fussy cut forever. Your idea is SOOOO much better.

  2. I have been playing with these as well. I have a new design that will be appearing in May with them hopefully. I love their shapes. They are quite shallow so it is nice to know that you can brush a layer of resin on them. I will have to try that! Is it spring yet? I think of spring with charm bracelets. Enjoy the day, Miss Carmi!
