Inchie and Rinchie Resin


These Bead's Landing molds I found at Michael's are pretty awesome because the square happens to hold a 1 inch square and the circle happens to hold a 1 inch circle and it also just so happens that paper punches in these sizes are easily found!




In the paper crafting world small 1 inch pieces of art work are called inches when squares and rinchies when circles. These art works are usually 3 dimensional collages but you can also find loads of 1 inch digital collages to print out on Etsy.com


Be sure to seal your art with about 3 coats of Mod Podge front and back whether flat or 3d.


Spray your mold with mold release and mix up a batch of EasyCast Resin.
 *ETI recommends wearing gloves for your safety* Gloves also help keep your nails nice!
Fill the mold about halfway full...


Submerge the pieces face down in the mold, be sure to check for air bubbles that might have been trapped...


Finish filling the mold with resin...


Let these set to harden for 24-72 hours.


 I'm turning this robin's egg inchie into a pendant with some E-6000 and an Aanraku Small Heart Bail.


Add some E-6000 to the bail and press firmly to the back of the piece, let set for 24 hours to reach maximum adhesion.


The rinchie is being turned into a ring with some E-6000 and a ring blank.


Add E-6000 to the ring and press firmly to the back of the piece and let set for 24 hours for maximum adhesion.


This is such a fun way to show off your artwork!
