Making multiples for events, swaps or sports swag is easy with this technique. My brother needed lots and lots of pendants to gift at Burning Man, so my daughter and I cast these for him. SCROLL DOWN FOR A QUICK HOW-TO VIDEO
We used our Large Circle Molds, poured in less than 1/4" of resin, sprinkled in some Dichro-ISH Film bits and some Resin Color Film bits. The words were printed on our Clear Color Film and laid on top of the resin. If you have time, Dome Up these pieces. Then we drilled, added a jump ring and a silk cord, and you can feel the love. Hope they don't blind people in the desert sun!

If you have time, Dome Up another layer of resin to protect the printed film, and to give your pieces a more finished, rounded feel.

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!
Yes, finally. I love the look of clear colored resin, but I've never been fond of the messy, expensive dyes. This transparent color film is such a treat to work with, it's truly clean and easy. See what you can do, and scroll down for the FREE how-to video!

I made these for Halloween, but now that they're hanging out on my desk, I'm going to keep them there year-round! It's like having a line-up of my kids as action figures and I love it!
Cut out the best part of your favorite photos, mount them on Clear Photo Film printed with a graphic design, and dome them up to make an awesome photo display for your home or office. See this related video for a how-to.

We're hooked on charms. Once we finished our Pics 'n' Chips creation, this idea evolved. I went back and found photos of my kids from every Halloween (so far), and charmed them all. I love being reminded of the silliness! This top piece converts from a necklace to a bracelet using a hook-clasp, but works just as well with magnetic clasps.

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.
This is my favorite new creation! I shrunk down some of my favorite photos and picked paint chips to coordinate with them. Domed them all, adding resin to both sides, then looped them onto this open-link chain, adding beads that tied in with my color scheme.
In this version I've used my vacation photos with shells for accents. Watch the video to learn how to make your own!

If you've stopped by our booth at a show, you've most likely seen some work by Mixed Media Artist Belinda Spiwak. She combines found objects and scraps from other projects with a variety of other mediums like acrylic paint, texture paste, and color spritz, resulting in stunning collage effects. She then pours resin over select areas, letting some of the original textures show through. The results are dramatic 3-D scapes. Some tell a story, others are just fun!
Here's one more way you can use Little Windows Brilliant Resin to enhance your creations. Belinda collaged many elements in this piece, then dripped resin over it, in an irregular way, protecting the piece, securing the bits in place, and creating great contrasts in texture and finish. Click the video link below to see how it's done.
Click this image for a link to Belinda's Facebook Page, and check out her latest creations. She's a true talent, turning any material - from papers to fabrics to metals - into stunning, layered art. Thank you Belinda!
One of Belinda's favorite sources for interesting bits and pieces is a website called skybluepink.com, and I'll admit I'm obsessed with this site and their teeny-weeny puzzle pieces, micro-buttons, asian goodies, charms and ephemera of all sorts - lots to add to your resin creations. So be sure to take a look for unique goodies at excellent prices!
When casting resin in molds, there is usually a dip in the top. You can trim this down using scissors, and for a more rounded finish, add another layer of resin on top. Little Windows brilliant resin bonds seamlessly to itself, layer after layer, thick or thin. This gives you chances to embellish your pieces as much as you'd Our new Doming Up Video shows how-to, with lots of fun ideas!
