SPOOKY STICKERS in Resin - for Bracelets and more

Ooooh fun!  Let's start with some bracelets - bangle and cuff - made with stickers and black paper.

MATERIALS:

Brilliant Resin

Bangle Mold

Silicone Doming Tray

Black paper (better quality than construction paper so it doesn't bleed)

Stickers - holographic drips and white ghosties (I found mine on etsy)

Scissors

Paper towels

 

Bangle:

Start by cutting strips of paper to fit your molds. Decorate with stickers, rub down firmly.

Cut to correct length and tape ends together.  Dry fit in mold to check size.

Pour resin, then insert strip, watch for bubbles, then fill to top of mold.  Allow to set, dome edge with resin if needed.

CUFF:

Cut strip to whatever width you want, wrap around wrist to determine fit.  Leave 1" minimum gap between ends.

Decorate with stickers and rub down firmly.  Punch holes at ends if you plan to put ribbon or elastic through.  Place on Doming Tray, dome and allow to set for 12-14 hours. 

Timing is important for this technique as you'll need to bend your resin strip while it's still soft enough to bend easily, without fingerprinting.  Wrap around something that approximates the size of your wrist, I used a couple of mixing cups taped together with some paper towel between to keep them straight.  Use clear packing tape to hold this in place while the resin fully cures - at least 1 more day.
