This week I will have a longer post (in several parts) showing you how to create your own open back projects with bezel wire, resin and some strong double-sided tape.
(If this is your first time visiting our blog keep in mind that this a not a beginner project. I would encourage you to try a simpler pour and the labels down the side of this blog will give you links to many great projects.)
Bezel wire can be twisted into interesting shapes. For this project I formed a heart shape and then pressed it into the double-sided tape you see in the picture above.
I gathered some Luminarte powder pigments and mixed a small batch of Jewelry Resin.
I made small dollops of resin on my non-stick craft sheet. Then I added some pigment to it.
The coloured resin I then dripped onto my double-sided tape base.
A second colour was made.
And then a third.
These colours were also dripped into the heart shape as shown. I added some extra uncolored resin to ensure that my heart would be secure when my first pour of resin cured.
I consider this my "First Pour."
My last step was to place a wood rubber stamp onto the heart shaped bezel wire to ensure my heart would cure completely flat. If I pressed my wire into the double sided tape correctly, the resin should cure within the wire shape. Tomorrow I will show you what I do next.
Bezel wire can be found on-line by googling the words "bezel wire."
The double-sided tape I use is sold in sheets and can be found in scrapbooking stores and I know I have seen it in Michaels Craft Stores. It can also go by the name "red-line."
