This is an easy way for me to create a tiny piece of art in an old vintage pan.
I did two separate resin pours to make it look as though my beads were floating.
Whenever I see these baking pans in antique markets I can't resist picking them up. The usually range in price between $1 to $3. I keep two or three out on my work table and whenever I have left over resin from a project I usually pour it into one of these pans. This way when I go to work in them, the artwork is not all the way on the bottom, but about 1/3 of the way higher in the pan.
In this pan I had some left over black coloured resin. I stuck this sticker to the surface and sealed the paper like I always do. (see "sealing" on side bar if you need more information)
I glued sequins in place as a frame.
Then I made a small batch of Jewelry Resin which I poured into the pan. That was the first of two pours I used for this project.
When the first layer of resin had cured I then glued on these red seed beads.
I covered them with the second pour of Jewelry Resin.
Seed beads are great embellishments. They can create tiny air pockets though. I did miss these two bubbles though! I only noticed them cured in place once I had taken my pictures for the blog post.
These can be used as great Christmas tree ornaments!
