Click the image for a link to the Doming How-To Video, then we drilled at the top and bottom of each domed piece, and added jump rings and a crystal drop.  Tie a ribbon on and what a great gift this will be!

Welcome your new lovies!


The name in this piece was made by bending soft sterling wire into letters.  The chain is from an old necklace I recycled, so dig through your jewelry box and reinvent whatever you're not using. 



Start with the Doming Technique, allow your resin to set up for about 1 hour, then gently push the bent wire name into the gooey resin, which will hold it in place and bond it nicely.

Action Standees

I made these for Halloween, but now that they're hanging out on my desk, I'm going to keep them there year-round!  It's like having a line-up of my kids as action figures and I love it!

Cut out the best part of your favorite photos, mount them on Clear Photo Film printed with a graphic design, and dome them up to make an awesome photo display for your home or office.  See this related video for a how-to.

You'll need:

Brilliant Resin

Special Photo Paper

Clear Photo Film

Doming Tray

Drill

Jumprings, or wire to connect them

Convertible Charms

We're hooked on charms.  Once we finished our Pics 'n' Chips creation, this idea evolved.  I went back and found photos of my kids from every Halloween (so far), and charmed them all.  I love being reminded of the silliness!   This top piece converts from a necklace to a bracelet using a hook-clasp, but works just as well with magnetic clasps.  

Check below for a cool idea for the back sides too!

Here's a different way to mount your charms, I used colored jumprings in the corners to attach them in this checkerboard pattern.

 

Using our Special Double-Sided Photo Paper, I printed a spiderweb design on the back of the cropped images.  Then I stuck some glittery number stickers on the back, showing her age that year, so it really tells a story!

Pics 'n' Paint Chips

This is my favorite new creation!  I shrunk down some of my favorite photos and picked paint chips to coordinate with them.  Domed them all, adding resin to both sides, then looped them onto this open-link chain, adding beads that tied in with my color scheme.

In this version I've used my vacation photos with shells for accents.  Watch the video to learn how to make your own!
