Embossed DICHRO Color-Shift Jewelry

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!

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.

Hearts!

These DichroISH Heart Earrings are super lightweight and fun to make.

It's amazing how the same pair of earrings can look so different depending on the lighting and your angle of view!

These are thin, lightweight, and waterproof!

For this project you'll need:

Earring findings (I bent gold head pins)
Texture film needs to be crumpled up, then stick 2 layers together with adhesive so it's stiff enough to hold resin while doming.  Dome fronts with clear resin, dome backs with black resin.

STICKERS in Resin - Bracelets and more

Ooooh fun!  Let's start with some bracelets - bangle and cuff - made with stickers and black paper.

MATERIALS:

Brilliant Resin

Bangle Mold

Silicone Doming Tray

Black paper (better quality than construction paper so it doesn't bleed)

Stickers - holographic drips and white ghosties (I found mine on etsy)

Scissors

Paper towels

 

Bangle:

Start by cutting strips of paper to fit your molds. Decorate with stickers, rub down firmly.  

resin bracelet bangle cuff casting jewelrymaking stickers

Cut to correct length and tape ends together.  Dry fit in mold to check size. 

resin casting bangle bracelets cuff bracelet jewelrymaking stickers

Pour resin, then insert strip, watch for bubbles, then fill to top of mold.  Allow to set, dome edge with resin if needed.

resin jewelry making casting bangle bracelets holographic stickers

resin casting jewelry making stickers bangle bracelet 

CUFF:

Cut strip to whatever width you want, wrap around wrist to determine fit.  Leave 1" minimum gap between ends.

Decorate with stickers and rub down firmly.  Punch holes at ends if you plan to put ribbon or elastic through.  Place on Doming Tray, dome and allow to set for 12-14 hours. 

Timing is important for this technique as you'll need to bend your resin strip while it's still soft enough to bend easily, without fingerprinting.  Wrap around something that approximates the size of your wrist, I used a couple of mixing cups taped together with some paper towel between to keep them straight.  Use clear packing tape to hold this in place while the resin fully cures - at least 1 more day.

  Add ribbon/elastic if you want.

Postage Stamp Resin Jewelry

This juicy purple background is my favorite!  There are post earring backs embedded in resin on the back side at the top.
resin jewelry making postage stamps halloween
I picked up these Halloween stamps from USPS, and while they look flat in the photo, they are super holographic when they turn, so they're much more exciting in action especially in earrings that dangle and catch the light.
There are many amazing things you can create using postage stamps with Brilliant Resin.  Stamps are printed on different paper qualities, some of which don't hold up as well in resin, so test before you start making.
resin jewelry making postage stamps earrings halloween ghost
These are all very lightweight, and since they're domed with resin on both sides they're waterproof too!

I'm still working on this bracelet, but you can see where it's going,  I just need to remember to trim the edges a little bit - right now they could cut steak!
resin jewelry making postage stamps charm bracelet halloween
And here are some tiny earrings I made by cutting one postage stamp in half and trimming around the window design.  I embedded twisted wire in resin on the back, and after it set up I bent it over a pen to create the earring loops.

I had some extra stamps so I punched them out with my Small Squares Punch and resined the fronts.  I might make buttons, magnets, or stickers out of these.  They're super shiny and feel really good too.

Here's another stamp project I made a few years ago using a Chinese New Year Stamp domed on both sides with Brilliant Resin, some metal Wire Lace, and some crystals.

Polymer Clay with Resin

resin casting polymer clay jewelry bangle bracelets

Little Windows Brilliant Resin is your best bet with polymer clay because...

  • It's safe easy to use.
  • You can mix in tiny batches if needed to avoid waste.
  • You can bake poly clay around your resin pieces - they won't crack or distort, and they will stay shiny. 
  • You can cast resin around your baked polymer clay pieces.
  • You can do a single pour or create layers.
  • Gentle formula with no solvents so your designs and intricate cane work stay crisp and clear.
  • See examples below! 

Also, our White Resin Colorant won't yellow with baking, so it's great for making eyes and other designs that require bright white shapes. 

Ways you can use Brilliant Resin with polymer clay:

CASTING

You can also use Resin Color Film as a background with your polymer clay creations, like Veronica did in this piece.  Cast in our Oval Double-Sided Mold:

DOMING ON CLAY

The example above and below are from a collaboration with Mags Bonham of Really Unique Creations and show how you can dome thin or thick layers of Brilliant Resin over your baked polymer clay pieces for a great shiny finish.

CLAY AND BAKE

You can also Sculpt around your cast Brilliant Resin cast pieces you've already made, and bake them with your clay. Just don't exceed polymer clay time and temperature recommendations.

Here's another example of doll eyes made by Kendra at VirgosAlchemy.com, which Phyllis of PGM Sculpting worked with to create the lifelike gaze of this beautiful mermaid doll.

ALCOHOL INK DRIP TECHNIQUE

resin casting alcohol inks bangle bracelets

There's lots of fun to be had by incorporating alcohol inks into Brilliant Resin, here are a few techniques you can try,  CLICK HERE for alcohol ink recommendations:

Simple colors

You can add color between layers of resin for beautiful organic looks, or to add dimension.  Inks can be painted on, or dripped and blotted. 

resin casting alcohol inks blue waves earrings

resin casting alcohol inks jewelry making earring necklace

 

STICKER RESIST TECHNIQUE

resin cast alcohol inks resist stickers jewelry

resin casting alcohol inks monogram jewelry making

Step 1 - Cast clear layer of Brilliant Resin in any mold and allow to set up.

Step 2 - Place a monogram sticker on the resin, rub it down well, then drip, daub, or paint inks over it.  Allow to dry, then remove the sticker. 

Step 3 - Add a layer of clear Brilliant Resin to seal it in.

 

Here's one on a white cast resin piece, outlined in silver ink:

DRIPPING INKS ON CLEAR PHOTO FILM

resin casting doming alcohol inks jewelry

This is a fun way to create gorgeous glass-like looks. In the image above I dripped inks on a sheet of Clear Photo Film, which holds the inks very well, and then blew through a straw to splat them out. 

 resin casting alcohol inks bangle bracelets

resin casting little windows alcohol inks jewelry suncatcher

Here's what you'll need...

resin casting little windows alcohol inks bangle bracelets

Use the guide that comes with these molds to size your strips.

resin casting alcohol inks bangle bracelets little windows

resin casting little windows alcohol inks bangle braceletsresin casting little windows alcohol inks jewelry making

For these bangles and sun catchers, attach a sheet of Clear Photo Film to a stiff board (cardboard, a clipboard, or other white surface), prop it up at an angle and squeeze your inks at the top of the sheet, allowing them to run down.  For distinct colors let each one dry before adding the next color.  You can tip the sheet different ways to get all kinds of rivulet patterns, and try dripping pure alcohol in spots to create more intricate looks.  CLICK HERE for alcohol ink recommendations.  Have fun experimenting!

 

 

 

PETRI TECHNIQUES

As anyone who has tried this technique knows, it's trial and error until you figure out how to get the look you want. Our friend Myriam of Myriam's Nature has tons of well done video tutorials that can save you time and money, and give you great new ideas.

This is done in a similar way to the glitter eyes in this how-to video.

 

 

COLOR PHOTOS WITH ALCOHOL INK

You can also paint or blot alcohol inks onto our Special Photo Papers for selective color or design.  While the inks stay put nicely even with layering resin, some colors of alcohol inks shift in resin, and some fade faster than others.
