Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here working with Envirotex Jewelry Resin and the jewelry molds from ETI.
Don't forget to use the Mold Release/Conditioner before using your molds. It really helps the resin pieces pop easily out of the molds once they are set.
I prepared the Envirotex Jewelry Resin according to the manufacturer's directions. Once the resin was ready, I filled a number of molds about half way. Next, I proceeded to add assorted colors of Transparent Dyes into the molds. The Transparent Dyes are really translucent and create some beautiful pieces.
I placed 2 drops of Green Transparent Dye into 2 molds and waited to see what would happen. The Dye actually moved around the resin - it was fun watching it spread out.
Next, I added a drop of Yellow Transparent Dye
into one mold and watched it blend with the Green. Into the other mold, I added some Robin's Nest Dew Drops.
Next, I poured more clear resin on top to fill the molds. This step allowed the colors to move around some more and blend creating some really fun effects.
Into other molds, I also poured clear resin, then added a drop of Amber Transparent Dye. After adding more clear resin, the color appears to be floating in the resin.
These next designs were created by adding a drop of Amber Transparent Dye
into the clear resin. After waiting a few minutes I added a drop of Blue Transparent Dye
and waited a few minutes more. Then I added more clear resin to top off the molds. I love the look of these pieces, they are my favorites so far.
After waiting for the molds to set, I popped out all these fun pieces.
Now, I just need to decide how to use them.
Thanks for stopping by today.
