Alumilite Amazing casting resin
Rubber texture mat for clay
Pearl Ex powders in magenta, sapphire blue, bright yellow, emerald
1 inch round silver pendant bezels
Marker, circle template, scissors, paint brush
Acrylic metallic based paint
Alumilite Amazing clear cast epoxy resin
Transparencies printed with clip art or quotes
Assorted glitters and micas
Ball chain necklaces
Not shown: Measure 10 ml each of part A and part B of the amazing casting resin. Mix together well, which takes about one minute.
Note: This is a quick curing resin. You need to have everything ready for the next steps before mixing the resin parts together.
Pour the mixed resin over the rubber pad and allow to spread.
Pro tip: The more you spread the resin over the pad, the thinner the resin sheet will be. This will give you more room in your bezel to add more layers of clear resin later.
Step 7 (optional)
Because it’s hard to get an exact fit inside the bezels, I painted the bezel base with ICE resin luster in Pacific Ocean. This will make any blank spaces around the edges or holes in the resin sheet harder to notice if the background is another color than silver.
Allow to dry for 30 minutes before going on to the next step.
Mix a small batch of Amazing clear cast epoxy. Dab a small amount in the base of the resin bezel and push around to coat. The resin is serving as a glue in this step.
Note: Put less resin in the bezel than you think you need. It doesn’t take much and will keep you from cleaning up spills later.
Placing the pendants on a drying mat is helpful because the open spaces allow room for the bail, letting the pendants lie flat.
Add the textured circle to the pendant base.
Pro tip: Dipping the circle in the cup of resin first will break the surface tension and make bubbles less of a problem.
Not shown: You can add a little bit of glitter onto the base as well.
Let cure for 24 hours before moving on to the next step.
