GLOW IN THE DARK Resin Projects!
This high-contrast look can be done 3 ways: by printing images onto Clear Photo Film, by painting by hand, or with clear-backed stickers.
STEP 1: Mix Glow In The Dark powder into Brilliant Resin and pour a thin layer in your mold
(these powders give a much better glow than GITD nail polish)
STEP 2: Pop out cast pieces, stick on clear-backed stickers/insert images/paint on designs, and Dome them Up (click here to watch Doming Up how-to video).
The projects below were done the same way, but with images printed onto our Clear Photo Film The round NBC Jack Skellington pendant, the creepy skeleton pendant, and the skull keychain were made using the Doming Technique - clear resin on one side, resin with GITD Powder on the back side:
The pendant on this spider necklace was made using our Medium Silicone Mold, the "beads" were made in our Silicone Cabochons Mold. For these, we printed these images on Clear Photo Film, and cast them in Brilliant Resin. We then mixed GITD Powder into a new batch of resin, and Domed Up the backs. After 1-1/2 hours, I was able to embed the wire into the cast shapes. See this how-to video for reference on embedding wire in resin.
Here's another using an image copied onto Clear Photo Film, this one's in color and domed on both sides. On the back I added GITD Powder, and embedded a pin into the resin as it was setting. It looks very different from day to night.
And what's Halloween without some eyeballs?!
These eyeballs were cast in layers (see this video for how-to's), then I painted designs on the outside of the castings with black nail polish.
