How-To:
My kids keep stealing this one.  I mixed a tiny bit of super-fine glitter in my resin because Princess Bubblegum asked nicely. 
This piece can be made following Options #1 or #2 below.

If you plan to work with digital images, the video above walks you through 3 different ways to resize photos to fit these bangle molds:
1) Using the little-windows.com online Photo Cropper
2) Using MS Word or Google Docs  
3) Using Photoshop 
The tutorial at the bottom of this post has a wider range of project ideas and demos, from bangles to ornaments to trinket dishes.   

Here is a quickie video for projects like this that'll give you the basic idea of how to make them:



 

I'll describe 3 ways to create the character strip.  Once you have this, the resin casting part will be the same for all 3:

Strip Option 1: If you have stickers you want to use, cut a 5/8" strip of Clear Photo Film or clear packing tape to fit your bangle mold (our molds include a guide with a sizing strip just for this) and arrange the stickers.  Cut the strip to the right length based on the shape of mold you're using, and stick the ends together. Do a dry fit in the mold to make sure it's a good fit.

Strip Option 2:* If you have digital images you want to use, you can size them to fit on a 5/8" strip and print on Clear Photo Film.  The images will be clear, so you'll want to paint the backs of each character with white acrylic paint so the characters will appear as though they are floating in the resin once they are cast.

Strip Option 3:* If you have digital images you want to use, you can also size them to fit on a 5/8" strip and print on our Special Photo Paper for Resin.  The images will have a white background, so to make the characters appear as though they are floating in the resin once they are cast you can punch them out and arrange them on a 5/8" strip of clear packing tape.

* Both of these options follow the top tutorial.

Once you have your composed strips, mix a batch of Brilliant Resin following the volume guide that comes with our Double Sided Bangle Molds. Fill each bangle mold about 3/4 full, insert your photo strip, push it down with the Mixing Wand that comes with Brilliant Resin, then fill to the top of the mold.  Check for bubbles after 10 minutes and push down your strip if it has floated up. Repeat if necessary.

You'll be able to demold any time after 12 hours without fingerprinting.  If you've underfilled your mold, trim any uneven bits off and then dome up the top edge for a smooth, professional finish. You'll see a full demonstration in the video below.
