I also want to let all my awesome followers know that I will not be posting anything new for awhile. I begin training for a new job on Monday. I will be driving 1 1/2 hours - one way - everyday. My training is from 8:30am - 5:30 pm and lasts for 4 weeks. So...I will not have the luxury of working on my blog and hanging out on the Etsy forums.
Please don't give up on me and unfollow!!!
I will be blogging like crazy once I have finished training :)
Resin - Continued:
I was wondering what I would do if I wanted to do a resin project and I didn't have a pendant setting.
This is what I came up with. I coiled up regular craft wire and ended the coil with a loop. I left the loop even with the rest of the coil so the pendant would lay flat. I glued my picture onto the wire with E6000 glue and let it dry.
I spooned the resin on the picture and allowed it to over flow. I was not trying to control the resin at all but on 2 of the coils, the resin stayed right on the picture.
You can see in the picture below, the resin over flowed on the large pendant. If this bothers you, cover the back with a circle of felt.
I made the large and tiny pendant using that great collage I bought from Cachecache
The middle sized pendant was made with one of Cynthia's floral pictures.
This is the front of the large pendant. I deliberately Mod Podged this picture only 1 time. I want you to see the importance of all the Mod Podge steps. The dark halo around the witch (especially by her hat) is staining from the resin. It was all white before the resin was applied.
