Our Special Photo Paper for Resin is not only waterproof, it's double-sided. Above you can see me doming the front side of these round photo charms. I let that set up, flipped them over and domed the backside, which was printed with a leaf pattern from the movie. Once the resin had thickened up for 1-1/2 - 2 hours I inserted simple red wire loops on the back sides.
This necklace and earrings set was also domed on both sides (DoubleDoming):
Same with these pieces, but I also inserted the magnets into the thickening resin on the backs.
This next one is the trickiest project, and I love it!
Step 1: Select, cut, and arrange your photos.
Step 2: Dome all the fronts and allow to harden.
Step 3: Flip in the same position, shape wires as you like and set the wires aside.
Step 4: Dome back side, wait 1-1/2 - 2 hours, then press wire into thickening resin. Allow to set up at least 12 hours.
Step 5: Add cord (I used several colors of Wire Lace), charms, whatever other elements you'd like to finish your creation.
