One of my favorite things when asking myself how to make domino resin pendants, is that they are so much fun to use when making resin jewelry. You can get boxes of them at yard sales, flea markets and dollar stores, so they can be an inexpensive way to make resin jewelry and crafts.
Step 1: Dry the flowers
The quickest way I’ve found to do this is to dry flowers in the microwave. Once dry, place them on the waxy side of freezer paper. Apply two layers of the resin gloss sealer spray before turning them over and coating them with another two layers.
Note: Do the spray in short, light bursts. The force of the spray is enough to push the petals off the paper.
Step 2: Mix and apply resin
After arranging the dominos on a non-stick drying mat, I gently place the flowers on top. I mixed Resin Obsession crystal doming resin and gently poured it on top of each of the dominoes. A stir stix is great to draw the resin to the edge.
Set aside to cure.
Step 3: Evaluate how the flowers look
The resin cured and my flowers kept their color. Yeah! (Although one of them had a drip over the side. You will see how I fix that in a minute.)
In case you missed last week’s post, you can see what the same flowers looked like under resin without the resin spray coating beforehand. They turned different colors completely!
Step 4: Fix the drips
What do you do if you have a little spillage? Let your resin get to the soft cure stage, then peel it off with a pair of pliers.
Step 5: Finish
To finish these off, all I have to do is add some glue on bails to the back.
