Here is a simple idea for St Patrick's Day. My finished button has two layers of Envirotex Lite resin.
I have been wanted to remind you that not all rhinestones are alike.
So this finished peice represents a "bad resin pour" and "how to fix a resin mistake" post.
I started with some paper and some gold peel offs. They filled my button nicely and I protected the paper with Ultra-Seal. I bought this sheet of rhinestone glittered four leaf clovers at my Dollar store. Yes, they were only $1.
I adhered them to my button and you can see how nice the rhinestones looked.
Then I poured in some Envirotex Lite.
20 minutes later...rhinestones are gone.
Now, not all plastics are the same.
But I do know this...cheap plastic will just dissolve in resin.
I could have lived with this button as is.
The green dots left after the rhinestones disappeared are still pretty.
But I always choose to do a second pour so I can get a great resin dome on my pieces. I added in the gold leaves and some gel pen markers. Then I did one last pour and I am very happy with the results now!
