DIY Craft tape jewelry pendants
Sometimes I’m a little late to the party.
I see pictures of washi tape tutorials on Pinterest, but didn’t think about it working for resin. Now, I get it! In my latest craft store outing, I found these 1 inch squares that I knew would be perfect for jewelry. And in addition to using the to make resin pendants, I thought it would be fun to see how they would work with Diamond Glaze and Fluxe as well.
The tape pieces were almost an exact fit to the pendant trays. I used our 1 inch square silver pendants for this project.
I had to use a toothpick to press the tape down into the corners.
I added properly mixed Resin Obsession super clear epoxy resin, Judikins Diamond Glaze, and Judikins Clear Enameling Resin fluxe to one each of the three pendants. (I won’t go into the details here, but each one of those links above has information about each of those products and how to properly use them.)
I wanted to show you the differences between the 3 pendants:
1. The resin cured with the highest dome. If you want the most magnification and ‘thickest’ look, then resin is your choice.
2. All three had a smooth surface, but the resin was definitely the smoothest. I don’t think the average person could see the very minor waves in the diamond glaze or fluxe pendant, but I tend to be neurotic about noticing things like that.
3. The Diamond Glaze and fluxe didn’t dome up as much as the resin, but was still thick enough to give a glossy finish.
4. The resin requires the most skill. The Diamond Glaze and Fluxe were super easy to use, and in my estimation, easy enough for any beginner to get a nice finish with.
Regardless of which way you choose to finish your pendants, I think you will be happy with the results. Enjoy your new jewelry!
