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.
