The pendants above were cast in our Medium Molds, then Domed Up over a piece of Resin Color Film, with a bit of glitter mixed into the resin. Let that set up an hour or two, then push bent wire forms into the resin making a ripple effect and glossy dimension.
For this necklace I also embedded wire in cast pieces. Images were printed on Clear Photo Film. I embedded the film in clear Brilliant Resin using our Medium Silicone Mold and Cabochons Mold. We then added GITD powder into the resin to Dome Up the backs of these pieces, and embedded the wire as they were setting up. CLICK HERE for more Glow In The Dark Project Ideas.
Bendy Resin Pumpkins
Resin Color Film pumpkins, inspired by an expensive glass piece I saw.
You'll need Brilliant Resin, Resin Color Film, a Doming Tray, and a Spring Drill, and some colored wire. Cut strips were domed, then shaped (as shown in our Brilliant 3D Butterflies video), drilled, and attached with colored wire. The top one is about 3-1/2" across, the bottom one is about 1-1/4" across, and can be made into a necklace or earring.
We used Dichro-ISH Films layered in Brilliant Resin, in our Large Circle Mold, with a cat sticker. This shows how the color you put behind this film completely changes the look.
And this one has Resin Color Film behind the Dichro-ISH Texture Film.
This giant fridge magnet combines a photo with fun Halloween stickers.
This one has GITD powder mixed into the resin behind the stickers:
Domed Spider Necklaces
Here are two more pieces I just love, made with Dichro-ISH Films, but Domed. For the first piece, we stabilized Texture Film by using Double-Sided Adhesive to stick two layers together. Then we cut our shape, applied the sticker, and domed both sides.
For this piece we printed the web and spider graphic on our Clear Photo Film, stuck that to our Dichro-ISH Film, then domed both sides.
Glittery stickers domed with Brilliant Resin on a Doming Tray. To keep stickers from curling, cut through the backing in the shape you want, and leave it on as you dome the fronts. Then peel it off to dome the backs.
For all of these we used a variety of glitters, stickers, confetti and googly eyes. Click at the bottom of this post to watch a FREE how-to Video.
CANDY CORN CREATIONS
I was surprised by how little actual candy corn resembles the candy corn I hold dear in my mind from ages gone by. The ones from Target are big and kind of lumpy. Once I embedded them in Brilliant Resin, they didn't look very interesting, so I layered a spooky sticker on top, Domed it Up, and now I have an awesome paper weight!

Here are some simpler creations, made with photo prints of a nicer looking candy corn!
PAINTED RESIN PIECES
These were cast with Resin Color Film as the colorant, then we domed them up with a bit of glitter mixed into the resin, and then painted designs. You can paint between layers or on the outside.
OK, I'm a sucker for anything vampire-related (painful pun intended :) These pieces use glitters, acrylic paints, nail polish, stickers and charms all embedded or layered in Brilliant Resin, using our Hearts Molds Set. Click at the bottom of this post to watch a FREE how-to Video.
I made these charming photo frames for Halloween, but I can't seem to put them away. They've been moving around my desk all year, reminding me of when my cutie girls were even cuter!

These Photo Cubes make great gifts too, so fun to have on your desk to fidget with!
I'm not usually a glitter girl, but this is a slippery slope of fun! Whether you're creating some Halloween flair, or just something sparkly and fun to wear any day, this is an easy and versatile additive.
This video shows how to add glitters to resin for use in casting projects, which can be layered and embellished to your heart's content. Have fun!
Scroll down for the how-to video. This started with our cute Pumpkin Ornaments, but so much more is possible! These pieces are all made using our Resin Color Films, domed with Brilliant Resin. This was my original idea, inspired by an expensive glass pumpkin I saw:
Now look what else you can do!
Here's a design with 2 variations, one with a beaded accent wired into the center, and another with a domed photo in the center. I love them both! These are beautiful as ornaments, a photo desk display, or as a pin. LOOK OUT CHIHULY!
Watch and learn how to make these yourself!

For holidays and everyday, these make such a special gift. Whether it's a single charm, or an assortment, it's a great way to show off kids, pets, vacation, and weddings, or to remember our loved ones.
I just finished editing this video and I LOVE the results. Using our new Clear Photo Film, some resin, a drill, and some jumprings, we created a new way to showcase your pix!
Of course during the making of this video I thought of about 25 more projects using this technique. Send me your ideas too and we'll add them to the mix!
Clear Candle Votives How-To Video
When you're doming larger pieces like these (over 2"), especially with the Clear Photo Film, you should stabilize them by adding a stiff paper like cardstock to the back before adding resin. This will keep your pieces from curling up as they set. You can use a few small pieces of double-stick tape to attach them. Here's an example:
And here's an example I made using the same technique, but printing in color and cutting around my lovies. I leave it open on my desk when not in use:
