Here’s a great idea for transforming memories of your favorite trips into awesome reminders that can live around you, not just on your computer!
MEMORY MAGNETS: I used the Doming Technique and added some jump rings to connect our awesome pictures to some simple graphics created in MicroSoft Word or Photoshop. You can even cut pieces from postcards, brochures, maps….
TRAVEL COLLAGE: And here I use the Casting Technique to layer bits and pieces to create this wonderful collage. Bottom layer is actually cut from a map and becomes a little translucent when you put it in the resin. Second layer is a stamp, 3rd layer is a metal charm (I cut off the ring at the top). Be sure to allow at least 4-5 hours between layers, more if your item is heavy.
Create sparkling color-shifting beauty with some JUMBO Dichro-ISH Films and texture tools. You can use a single sheet or multiple layers to create depth, dimension and shine in your resin work. Embossing, Casting, Doming, Demolding, and adding findings are all demonstrated in this tutorial. Have fun!

This pair of earrings looks totally different depending on the lighting. Dichro-ISH Film embossed with the gear pattern folder, then domed on both sides with jewelry findings embedded in the resin. They are long but lightweight!
Doubled-up Texture Film, domed on both sides then drilled with our Spring Drill.
This pair was also made with doubled-up Texture Film, domed on both sides, with crystals embedded as the resin set up. Holes added with our Spring Drill, ear wires were hand-formed with copper wire.
These tiny shiny beauties were made from scraps from a bracelet project, domed on both sides, with the jewelry findings (sterling silver head pins), embedded in the resin.
Dichro-ISH Film embossed with the Gear pattern, cast in Brilliant Resin in our Medium Squares Mold. This one changes from gold to green to blue, depending on the lighting and angle.
Dichro-ISH Films are too flimsy to dome if they are just a single layer. For this piece I took a piece of clear packing tape, sprinkled some chunky glitter, then pressed a sheet of Texture Film onto the tape. Then cut out my shape and domed it on both sides with Brilliant Resin. Used my Spring Drill to make holes for these super-strong sterling silver plated jumprings, and strung it onto one of our sterling plated snake chains. So simple, so sweet.
Ooooh, these are some of my favorite pieces from the embossed Dichro-ISH Films video, they're simple but the hex pattern in blue is so eye-catching as it shifts in the light. This first piece was cast in our Medium Rectangles Mold.
Here are 2 jewelry options for the same piece!
And here's what if looks like if you turn that piece sideways, and drill the corners.
