Resin in Bezels

(More new projects below :)

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 closed-back bezels, open-back bezels, and also mounting resin pieces in bezels.  Lots of great info, enjoy!

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 3 layers, using 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!
