1  -casting resin w/embedded objects in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by blueparkart on: October 05, 2007 10:05:41 AM


 This was really easy, I bought an easy cast resin set and some transparent dyes. I have no idea what to do with these but in the future I am going to embed some images and make Christmas ornaments.

I used very cheap beads!! It was a big bag of beads from Michaels that I spent about four dollars on. For the blue and green catchers , I sorted the beads out. I had to buy a clear bag of beads too because there were no clear beads in the first bag I bought. Somewhere in this catagory are a few projects that other Craftster people did and I followed their instructions. Most importantly...make one thin layer of beads at the bottom of the pan.
    After the beads cool, you can just turn the pan upside down and the suncatcher falls right out.

*To Philosophia*  I was able to melt these beads in cake pans,ceramic carafes and coffee mugs. I also did a group in a muffin pan.....that worked really well.

Melted the beads in a metal cake pan and some ceramic dishes. Drilled a hole in them and strung them on fishing line. I got this idea from reading other melted bead proects on here.
