It's been a fun week playing with ETI’s Jewelry Resin, and with their two part epoxy Resin Clay. I enjoyed stepping out of my comfort zone and working with both. I already have more ideas for future projects with these great products. Stay tuned!
I've really been impressed with the projects the Stampendous design team has created this week. Be sure to check out this weeks' Stampendous Impressions blog posts for links to all of the design team posts.
And, of course, the famous Resin and Resin Clay Diva, Carmi Cimicata of the Resin Crafts Blog has been playing along with us this week with some of her terrific creations!
PLUS – The people at Nunn Design were kind enough to supply bezels to the the team so that we could make some beautiful jewelry!
I'm pleased to say that the project I created for you today turned out exactly like I pictured it in my head! That doesn't happen very often! I'm so excited! I usually tend to wear the same jewelry every day and not worry about matching my necklace to my outfit. This pendant has made me change my mind! I can't wait to find the perfect outfit to wear with this.
To make this pendant, I followed the package directions to prep the Jewelry Clay and then stamped one of the leaf images from the Stampendous Foliate Quad Cube onto the clay. I used a craft knife to trim the clay to fit in the bezel, carefully transferred the clay to the bezel and brushed on Perfect Copper Perfect Pearls Pigment Powder and let the clay cure. The next day I used a soft cloth to wipe away the excess pigment powder and buff it up a little. That's when I let out a little squeal! I LOVE it!
I'm so bummed that this looks no where as cool in the picture as it does in real life! I can't even tell you how many pictures I took, and this was the best one. *sigh* Sorry - hope you get the idea!
Here's my dilemma! On one hand I want to leave it alone and not mess it up, on the other hand I think it would look really cool if I rubbed on a bit of green paint to give it a patina look. Decisions, decisions! What do you think?
Ok, now it's time for you to check out what all of the other girls have created. Be prepared to be WOWED!!! I'm sure they're going to knock your socks off! Be sure to leave comments on each blog because we have Resin AND Stamps AND Bezels to give away!! Here’s who is playing with us today:
