You'll also need
- Fabric with a distinct design - fabrics react differently in resin, watch the tutorial to help you choose which will work best
- White cardstock, if you decide to back your fabrics as shown in the video
- Waxed paper or another non-stick surface (back of your doming tray works, if you're not using it for other projects).
- Sharp scissors, a craft knife, and a cutting surface
- Whatever jewelry findings you want to use to turn your piece into wearable jewelry.
- Paper towels
I'm loving this new technique for turning bits and pieces of fabric into jewelry, buttons, pins, magnets, all sorts of shiny treasures! It's easy to do and super-versatile. I'll let the images do the talking...and the how-to video!
Here are some examples of some different fabrics in resin, you'll notice the printed cottons on the left and right hold up well and still show some texture in resin, but the green felt looks flat and the fluffy blue stuff looks blobby - could be a cool effect, but it doesn't keep its soft appearance once you submerge it in resin.
You can also use a photo of fabric, which allows you to duplicate, resize, or manipulate if needed to coordinate with your pieces:
We've also made some lovely buttons with fabric scraps using our Silicone Cabochons Mold:
