A Rose Which Will Last Forever!



 Here is a little rose pendant which will never wilt.
I used Envirotex Lite in a shallow mold to make it.  I wrote about this mold in another post and I am still having fun with it.


Two observations about this project.  
One, I made an un-coloured rose by just pouring Envirotex Lite resin into my rose shape. 
Here is the rose cured.  
Two, the Japanese paper I applied to the back of the rose is white and gold. 
As you can see it is quite opaque.


 However, when I applied a glaze of Envirotex Lite to the back, so that I could stick the paper to the underside of the rose, magic happened.  The white went clear!  This is a great lesson for future projects with Japanese papers.


 I glazed the back twice.


My last step was to attach a glue-on bail to turn the rose into a pendant!

That looks really cool! I like it as a clear background!
