When I left you yesterday my resin filled bezel heart was happily curing on my warm desk. Today I removed the double-sided tape back.
The back looks great...just what I was hoping for! You can see that the extra over-pour of resin (see yesterday's post) peeled away very easily. What you can't see is that the back of my piece now has a very thin layer of sticky residue. The double-sided tape leaves this behind. In the past I have tried using all sorts of glue and residue removers to get it off...none very successfully. So now I do something better.....
I made one final little batch of Jewelry Resin. I painted it on as a glaze layer right over the entire back of my piece. No more sticky residue, it is under the new glaze layer! I will let this cure 24 hours and then I will start to set up my final post with a finished piece of jewelry to show you!
