How-To:

These beautiful creations can be made in thin or thick layers depending on the look you're going for.  They can then be turned into jewelry, buttons, magnets, keychains, drawer pulls/cabinet knobs, .......

You'll want to let each layer set up for at least 4 hours. Allow the final cast layer to sit at least 12 hours before demolding to avoid fingerprinting your pieces.  You can Dome Up your pieces for a smooth finish, or you can add charms or other elements to the top layer by waiting about 1-1/2 - 2 hours then push in a charm or other element.  If you've allowed the resin to thicken up enough, the pushed in charm will create a ripple effect around the shape, which will catch the light and add more dimension to your pieces.

In this little video you can see how this film catches the light and changes color as the angle of view changes.





To turn your castings into jewelry, you can drill through your piece and add a jump ring, pinch bail, or wire.

Or you can glue a flat bail on the back of your piece like these ones.


Doming works differently, you can cut your doubled-up films into any shape you'd like.



You can also create Dichro-ISH pieces in bezels.  Start with a thin layer of Black Resin, then add a clear layer and add your shapes, then Dome Up with a 3rd layer.  You can press charms in to create a ripple effect, or just leave it smooth and shiny.

Here are some other projects made with the same Dichro-ISH Films.
