3d Domino Bracelet

This bracelet is a cheerful vintage-looking piece complete with 3d embellishments!






I keep several small molds on hand for excess resin and this project seemed perfect to use some of them. The red bow is colored with translucent red colorant, the gold horse and bow were resin colored with PearlEx in 656 Brilliant Gold, and the silver bow and horse were black resin poured into molds brushed with PearlEx in 663 Silver.



PearlEx works wonders for coloring resin.

They work wonderfully with resin and polymer clay and can even be used for food! You can check them out here:






I found these pre-drilled dominos and this vintage-style Chistmas scrapbooking paper at Hobby Lobby.
I cut the paper out a little larger than the dominos and glued it to the surface with Mod Podge.


Once it dried I used a sandpaper tool to remove the excess paper around the edges.


Coat the tops with Mod Podge to seal the paper and let dry.


Using some Glossy Accents I glued some of the resin pieces onto the dominos.


I then mixed up a batch of EasyCast Resin and poured some onto the domino.
I used a toothpick to drag the resin to the edges of the domino and to the edges of the resin pieces.
 

Let these set for 24-72 hours to harden.


Once the resin hardened I used some Stretch Magic cord and acrylic beads to create a bracelet with the dominos.



Now it's a festive vintage piece to spread some Christmas cheer!
