Bottle Cap Collage Pendant

I love making collages on ATCs (Artist Trading Cards) and wanted to make a wearable collage- bottlecaps make the perfect "canvas"!

                                     

We need some supplies...


EasyCast Resin, Bottle Caps and collage materials like half pearls, rhinestones, polymer clay food, and alphabet beads.
*ETI suggests wearing gloves when working with resin for safety* Gloves also help keep your nails nice :)

 


Mix up a batch of EasyCast Resin.
 



Pour some resin into the bottle caps but not too full because we are putting things into the resin!


Start building your collage by pressing things into the resin. Once the collage is how you like it, let it dry for 24-72 hours.
 
  
Once the resin has hardened, we can drill little holes into the bottle caps.
 

I'm using my gerneric "Dremel" drill with a tiny grinding tip that tapers to a fine point.


Turn your bottle cap face down, but remember where the top is, and begin drilling into the metal.


Once you have a tiny hole, you can add a jump ring and a chain.

 
 
Our bottle cap collage is ready to be worn!
