Fun Holiday Ideas

There's still time to create some resin treasures! 
Here are a few ideas to get your brain spinning:
 
 
Click the image for a link to the Doming How-To Video, then we drilled at the top and bottom of each domed piece, and added jump rings and a crystal drop.  Tie a ribbon on and what a great gift this will be!
For this one we printed on our Special Photo Paper and added a little glitter then domed it for a smooth shiny finish.

Welcome your new lovies!


The name in this piece was made by bending soft sterling wire into letters.  The chain is from an old necklace I recycled, so dig through your jewelry box and reinvent whatever you're not using. 



Start with the Doming Technique, allow your resin to set up for about 1 hour, then gently push the bent wire name into the gooey resin, which will hold it in place and bond it nicely.

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!

Bendy Resin Ornaments

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!
