How-To:

We get a lot of questions about working with resin in bezels (a container or frame), so this is an extensive video that covers working in open-back bezels.  Lots of great info, enjoy!



As you'll notice, some have a closed or solid backing, others are open, for those you'll have to seal the back before you begin or your resin will run right under and out your piece.

Here are some example pieces from the tutorial above, and more projects to inspire you:


These next 2 photos are of the same project, using Dichro-ISH Texture Film in the large bezel, and black and white resin colorants in the smaller ones to make eyes.  Since there is no backing on the bezel, the backgound really affects how your piece will look.





Gorgeous possibilities with open-backed bezels

Here's a beautiful piece by one of our Amazing Makers:

 

Here is another example of resin in a bezel, this time I found a carved bead with an oval opening that let me pour in layers. I started with a Glow In The Dark layer, then layered graphics printed on our Clear Photo Film, and a final layer using thickened, goopy resin to "Emboss" just on the spider to make it extra creepy!
