Adorn yourself with adorable bumbly bees!

The first step for all of these projects is to create a bunch of different sizes of my Bee graphic using GoogleDocs, MicroSoft Word, or Photoshop.  Print this on our made-for-inkjet Clear Photo Film, then cut out your shapes and color them any way you want.

Then dome both sides with Brilliant Resin on your Large Silicone Doming Tray, embedding wire or jewelry findings or magnets on the back side.

 Boingy plant stakes were made by embedding wire when doming the back side with Brilliant Resin (see this tutorial for a technique demo).  I colored this bee with Texture Film and Yellow Resin Color Film from my Jewel Colors pack, sticking the layers together with our Double-Sided Adhesive.

Here's a second one, a little smaller, I embedded a hair clip in the back side when I domed it with Brilliant Resin.

This bee pin was colored with alcohol inks, which are clear, then a layer of white alcohol ink to make these colors shine.  You could also paint a layer of white acrylic paint instead of white alcohol ink.

These bee earrings were colored with 2 things - yellow nail polish for the bodies and alcohol ink on the wings for an iridescent fairy look that bounces the light.

And this pendant was made the same way - nail polish on the body, and sparkly alcohol inks on the wings.
