sooooo I havent posted in ages..


Edward the lion key chain with some crystals

&&

my favorite Cullen crest locket! squeeee Ive been so excited for this for weeks!







I was going to make the locket nice and domed you know like it has a cab on it or whatever and use some resin but as I got into my basement to get my resin I find its hardended in its container.. lovely, eh? I was thinking about using diamond glaze but no one sells it around here. Seriously the sales associate at Michales was all "Whats it for?"
Anyone have any ideas how I can achieve this?

Instead of diamond glaze, I use a scrapbooking dimentional glaze that comes in a pink bottle. Although I have two bottles of the stuff I can't seem to find it to give you the name.

I've heard of Aleene's dimensional paper glaze, someone posted a project using that stuff, I'VE SEEN IT AT MICHAELS but I've never used the stuff. It's supposed to be something like diamond glaze. Nice pieces here. I loooooooove Edward. (sigh) Cheesy

I love both, though I have to say I'm very partial to that key chain.  What a great idea!

I recently used that 5-minute epoxy you can get at the hardware store/....the stuff that comes in a syringe. You don't have a super-long working time with it but it domes really well.

It also gets air bubbles really well in it, too and since it hardens so fast the bubbles don't have a chance to dissipate on their own. Stand by with a heat gun or a straw ready to blow the bubbles away.

it sounds tricky but Ill look into it.
thats really the effect I want Im just too nervous to try resin until I practice on something like scrabble tiles first.
