Riddick Inspired Resin


Riddick hits theatres this Friday! It is the long awaited sequel to Pitch Black and The Chronicles of Riddick starring Vim Diesel!


I created this Riddick inspired resin for the occasion!


I'm using EasyCast Resin, Castin' Crafts mold, mold release, black pigment, and PearlEx in Silver 663. *ETI recommends using gloves for health and safety* Gloves also help keep your nails nice!


Spray the mold with some mold release and mix up a batch of resin. Pour this into the small circle cavity of the mold.


 Add in a pinch of PearlEx Powder by Jacquard in Silver 663...



PearlEx works wonderfully with resin! You can see all the colors they make here: http://www.jacquardproducts.com/pearl-ex-pigments.html


Mix in well and let set to harden for at least 24 hours.


When the silver circle is hard enough to be unmolded, Spray the mold with mold release and mix up another batch of resin.


Color the resin black and fill the pyramid-ish looking shape about half way full...


Submerge the silver circle face down and use a toothpick to be sure it is pressed to the bottom.


Finish filling the cavity with resin and let this set for 24- 72 hours until hard.
 
 
 
It's reminiscent of Riddick's eyes shining from the dark and the shape, when held this way, reminds me of those pterodactyl creatures from Pitch Black!
 

To turn this into a necklace I'm using a chain, E-6000, and a bail.


The bail I'm using is an Aanraku Silver Leaf Medium Bail. Aanraku has loads of pieces that work perfectly with resin! You can check out what they offer here: http://store.abasg.com/mm5/merchant.mvc



Apply a bit of E-6000 to the bail...


Press this firmly to the back of the piece and let set for 24 hours to get maximum adhesion.


Add the chain and it's ready to wear!
