Resin For Sentimental Projects



 I finished a very special sample.  
I found this unique locket at an antique market 
and knew I would want to add something very sentimental into it.


 These are photos of my beloved dog Shamus, now passed on.  
I often called him prince charming.
Since I was placing an image of him into a non-flat surface I used this pile of tiny stones to keep my piece level when I poured in the resin.


 Photos in resin are so special.  I love the permanence of this tribute.


 I did make a tiny mistake though.  I poured a little too much resin into the top of the locket.  I can't close it now......so remember this tip if you work in a locket!  No matter, it is going to stay open on my work table so I can see if all the time.
