Liquid Pearls and Jewelry Resin

 This pendant features dimensional paint dots that look like tiny jewels.

I made this piece in three stages.  
First Layer:  A layer of blue coloured Jewelry Resin.  Waited 24 hours.
Second Layer:  My Klimt woman image and a clear layer of Jewelry Resin.  Waited 24 hours.
Third Layer:  I applied some gold peel offs and dots of Liquid Pearls.  I let the liquid pearls dry completely and then covered everything with a final clear layer of Jewelry Resin.  
Then, I set my piece aside for a full 48 cure.

 When my bauble came out of the mold it needed a little bit of sanding to smooth the edges.
All I had left to do was add the bail and it is ready to wear.

This post was designed, photographed and written by me.

I was wondering how resin would react with other elements. I already mentioned temporary tattoos, but how about elements like Air dry clay (Makins clay or paper clay)? I have tiny little faces made with these clays that I painted with pearl paints (water color paints sealed with Krylon) that I want to put in bottle caps with resin.

I'm a little hesitant about buying resin because of the price (I'm on a VERY limited budget) and the smell. And I really didn't want to do all that work if it doesn't turn out right.

Thank you for your time.

I'm not sure if this is that similar, but Dimensional Magic has a similar (but not so durable) feel as resin and its not nearly as pricey. It might be something you can try out to see what happens.

If you you have a Michaels near you, they sell Jewelry Resin, I think for 9.99...and with the 40% off coupon it is a bargain. I don't find that ETI resin smells....and the new Envirotex Jewelry Resin has an added citrus scent for the mixing stage that you might like. Air Dry clay is not something I have tested myself......I would suggest experimenting with a peice you don't like to see what happens...that's what I do. I coat everything with mod podge to give it a little more resistance to a resin stain too.
