You're most welcome, but. . .

Diane, you truly are a genius!

...before you say that Cheesy, let me know which method you use and how well it works!  (I was just researching and using my past research and guesses, not using personal experience.)

Just thinking aloud here.. but what about using a scrapbooking stamp? I wonder if that also would work... Thoughts on that?  Maybe that's how she got that so precise?

sandradb, are there transparent-background "scrapbooking stamps"?  I'm unfamiliar with them.
If so, they should work since would be the same thing as a printed-on sheet of acetate...there could be adhesive on the back but that shouldn't matter much or at all.  Try it!

I was wondering if they put a layer of resin, let it set-up, and then stamped on it before putting another layer of resin on.

When in doubt, use more glue!

Not that I know of, but i was thinking if they filled the mold/spoon with resin, let that harden, then do the stamp and let that dry for a little bit, then fill do a final layer of resin?

Alright resin masters... I have a question... I have searched and searched and found nothing like this on the board.  How on earth did this person layer the glitter? I am still new to resin but I thought that this idea was pretty genius!!!

By turning the mold on its side, pouring in the purple layer (perhaps with masking or other tape or clay across part of the open side of the mold to keep the resin from spilling out?) and waiting for it to gel before pouring in the next layer?...repeat, repeat?  Would be one way anyway off the top of my head, but there are usually various ways to do the same thing in art/craft/etc.

maybe the glitter was glued to some kind of base material first, then resin poured on top?

Wouldn't a tape either leak or pull out the slightly gelled resin?  This technique is boggling me!
