This video was made as a guide for our Brilliant Resin Starter Kit, and teaches the most popular resin jewelry techniques: CASTING in Molds, DOMING on photos and stickers, and working in metal BEZELS. Also shows how our PHOTO CROPPING SOFTWARE works, and teaches several JEWELRY MAKING methods.
This kit includes all you'll need, but you can use open stock materials too and embed anything you'd like. Here are the techniques featured in this tutorial and some of the projects we made:

Making multiples for events, swaps or sports swag is easy with this technique. My brother needed lots and lots of pendants to gift at Burning Man, so my daughter and I cast these for him. SCROLL DOWN FOR A QUICK HOW-TO VIDEO
We used our Large Circle Molds, poured in less than 1/4" of resin, sprinkled in some Dichro-ISH Film bits and some Resin Color Film bits. The words were printed on our Clear Color Film and laid on top of the resin. If you have time, Dome Up these pieces. Then we drilled, added a jump ring and a silk cord, and you can feel the love. Hope they don't blind people in the desert sun!
