This is such a cool way to up-cycle buttons into beautiful resin filled bezels!
Here is a list of some of the items you can use:
1. Old book pages
2. Pyrite Flakes
3. Broken Rhinestone or Jewelry
4. Embellished Ribbon
5. Small Buttons or Beads
6. Decorative Fibers
7 Big old buttons with rim or very inexpensive large plastic buttons
Line the buttons with paper and add several coats of Ultra Seal
This protects the paper and gives a nice background.
Then start gluing down some embellishments.
(Ultra Seal is a glue and dries clear too!)
Continue to add embellisments until you are pleased with the looks.
Slowly pour in Jewelry Resin
, it is a little trickier to pour resin over objects that are so dimensional. Over-pours can happen quickly so take your time.
Let dry completely!
Check out the beautiful results!
Imagine what you can create with bits and pieces...
Give it a try and have fun!
