When making jewelry in resin molds, it’s hard sometimes for your designs to not appear flat and lacking dimension.  So how do you get around that?  Use alcohol inks in the petri technique to make the drops of color float in resin.  This is one of my favorite alcohol ink crafts.

  1. I want to know what kind of tags can I use to put in resin jewelry if you want to sell it. Where can I buy them? Also where can I buy chains for the pendants? Thank you
