Now that you’ve made something amazing with resin, you might be wondering how to finish resin charms. Cast items can be used in a variety of ways. You can use them on their own or add them to other projects.
To see how Kate made these charms read her tutorial on how to use cookie cutters as resin molds.
Keep turning the pin vise until the drill bit comes out on the other side. Brush away the resin bits from the drilling and add an oversized jump ring as a bail. This type of pendant loop is great when you really like both sides of the resin piece. You can wear either as the ‘front’.
Simply add a jump ring to the resin charm to make it wearable.
For larger items, you can use them in mixed media art projects or other home décor.
This is a masque I cast earlier using the same Cookie Cutter Casting technique. I recently combined it with canvas and various die cut or embossed paper pieces, peacock herls, and other embellishments. If you’d like to know how I put this together, it’s on my personal blog: http://rijacki.blogspot.com/2016/08/masque-for-ball.html.
