Embossing, Casting, Doming, Demolding, and adding findings are all demonstrated in this tutorial. Have fun!

Our general manager approves :)
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.
Now for some deliciousness!!! Doming in progress...
Here I'm following the Twisted Resin Technique from this tutorial.
This is the very same ornament, on the left it's shown with light reflecting off it, which lets the metallic reflective coating shine. The image on the right has light BEHIND the ornament, this shows off the beautiful base colors of the film.
Have fun with this technique, and send me photos of your creations!

Here are some of the actual projects made during this video, although they are much more impressive, colorful and shiny in person :)
This pin was made by combining one of our cast pieces with one of the domed pieces:

Here's our original Dichro-ISH video, some things have changed since this was created, like our Black Colorant has been improved from a black powder to an easier-to-blend, less messy gel:
