Amazing Makers: Stacy Whetsell
Our friend Stacy in Texas is not only amazing, she's prolific in her resin-making! Let me share just one of the things she's doing with her left-over scraps of Dichro-ISH films:
"So, I had lots of little left over pieces of Dichro-ISH film after I cut my shapes for other projects. I was looking at a pile of it thinking how pretty it would be to have something made with all those colors… so… I got myself a coffee bean grinder, threw all the scraps in there, and created some awesome looking sparkle." I asked Stacy if the bits clogged her grinder, to which she replied, "I got the el cheapo deluxe Black & Decker grinder from the grocery store for like $17. The bowl is stainless and I had no issues with clean-up what so ever. It was an easy rinse with water. A more industrious person could use a q-tip or low powered blower to get all the goodness out instead of the quick rinse with water."
Then she added the bits in this bezel bracelet, and domed them up with Little Windows Brilliant Resin. Stacy's signature is a small candy heart included in the resin, which is a sweet touch!

Great idea Stacy, thanks for sharing!
