Bezel Wire and Resin - A Tutorial For Experienced Resin Users Part TWO

Here is my heart shaped bezel on the morning of DAY TWO.  After twelve hours you can easily see where I poured in some coloured resin and a little clear resin in random locations.  There are a few areas at the base of my shape that have no resin...it is just exposed double-sided tape.
 I am now adding a "second pour" of Jewelry Resin to just make sure the entire bottom is definitely resin.  My resin bottom layer is only about 1/10 of an inch high.  It is a very thin pour designed to just ensure my bezel shape remains solid and that resin is not seeping out through the bottom.
 I also dropped in a few glass beads.  I let this heart shape cure for an additional 8-10 hour.  
DAY TWO EVENING I added paper and embellishments.  You can see my mod-podge which is gluing everything to that first thin resin bottom.  I worked carefully because the resin in the bottom is relatively hard, but it still needs a full 48 hour cure.
 After my glue was dry I was able to see how my mini collage was looking.  At this point I added in some paint and glitter.
Now I prepared my "third pour" of Jewelry Resin.  You can see that I did not pour my resin to the brim.  This will allow me to work on one more level.  I'll show you that next.
