I am very excited to show you, on the last day of my blog hop with the Stampendous Design team, my final projects.
I already know from early experiments this week that vintage glass looks amazing under resin. Now was my chance to play with Stampendous micro glitter. As you can see I had a really nice assortment to choose from. I also chose to work with the Nunn Design raised tag rectangles.
I applied Quick grip glue to my tag surface.
(Note that I left some open areas.)
I let the glue air dry for a few minutes.
Then I dropped glitter over the surface. Quick Grip dries quickly, so I knew if I waited, the glitter would stick in some spots and not in others. I wanted to try and make these surfaces look like gem stones.
Here are my three tags drying.
When the tags were dry I brushed away the excess glitter and made a small batch of Jewelry Resin.
I brushed resin across the surface of the resin tag.
I call this a glaze layer.
Now I do get asked all the time....can you wash out the brush? I don't even try. I buy my brushes at the dollar store and I know they can't be cleaned. Sometimes I recycle the wood though!
When my glaze layer of resin was in place I carefully placed some FRAN-TAGE bronzed mica flakes on the surface.
I let everything cure and was so happy with the results!
Here is how I am going to wear these tags.
This is my attempt to create some "manly necklaces."
The bronze flakes in this tag remind me a gold mine!
I had such a great week working with Stampendous products.
Thank you for all your support and comments!
