Thanks for all the kind feedback Smiley

Raindrop - you can google resin spoon pendants for better directions
There are also really good directions on craftster - search resin spoon pendant or necklace - not sure which one...

but here is my abridged version - and feel free to ask any questions if you don't understand.

cut the handle off w/ a dremel  (leave @ 1/2 ")  make sure its a cheapy spoon, or the remaining handle may be too hard to bend

bend the remaining handle backwords into a loop

You can use magazine paper, computer print outs, or just paint - whatever you want -sky's the limit
If its a light color picture you are putting down, paint the spoon white first - otherwise the pic can get a little dark after resin

Glue it down well,  After its dry SEAL THE PICTURE WELL- with modgepodge or even glue. (I used modgepodge)

Take extra glue and glob it around the side of the spoon - you will pull it off afterwards, but if the resin gets under the paper it makes ugly "water marks" around the edge

after everything is dry

I used easy cast resin - follow the directions - mix it up & pour it in the spoon -- let it set on wax paper -- if you accidentally overflow it - you can pull the excess resin off the back of the spoon w/ needle nose pliers after its fully dry


**You can even print on thick card stock & let the picture "float" in the spoon  - but don't really let it float - glue it down w/ a bead or something behind it - because otherwise -it really will float to the top - seal both sides

Hope this helps - and again - Thanks for the kind words Smiley

Thank you so much for posting the pics and directions. I'm a member of a support board for people with invisible illnesses - the founder wrote the spoon theory. Spoons are our mantra - i always make spoon themed gifts for the moderators and volunteers every year - guess what's on the list for next year!
