*ETI suggests wearing gloves when working with resin for safety* Gloves also help keep your nails nice :)
I sprayed the mold with Castin'Crafts Mold Release the I poured the resin mixture into the round jewel cavities to get the jaw breaker shape. Let this set for 24-72 hours to harden.
This is some resin "jawbreakers"glowing away.
I poured the left over resin mix into some tiny bottle caps which will be added to my scrap resin piece supply :)
To make these into a set of earrings I used some earrings with loops attached to the front, some small split rings, E-6000 adhesive, and jewelry pliers. You need 4 resin pieces for 2 earrings.
Apply E-6000 to the back of one resin pieces...
Press a split ring into the adhesive with half of the ring sticking over the edge of the resin to create a loop.
Take a second resin piece and sandwhich the split ring in between. Repeat this for the next earring and let dry for 24 hours to get maximun adhesion.
I attached a couple of split rings to the loop on the earring...
Then attach the resin "jaw breaker"!
For a ring, you'll need a ring blank and E-6000 adhesive.
Apply some E-6000 to the ring blank.
Press the resin piece onto the ring blank and let dry face down for 24 hours to get maximum adhesion.
I think these are too cute!!
