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

 Here we are, mid-week and day three of my complex bezel and resin project.  Yesterday's pour of resin has cured for 24 hours and there has been no seepage through the bottom of the wire.  That is great!  I took out my gel markers for one more round of surface marking.  
I am looking at my piece to see if there are any areas I want to highlight or add paint or glitter to at this stage.
 The next step is to make a final pour of Jewelry Resin to ensure that the whole bezel is covered evenly.
 There was a small over-pour going on at the front.  I am going to leave this alone.  It will cure in place and in a about 12 hours I will be able to peel it away from the edge.
 Remember!  Resin does not like the cold.  
Now that the air conditioning is on in my home my studio is very cool.  I am keeping a desk lamp on so that my work area is warm.  Tomorrow I will peel away the double sided tape to reveal the open back!

I love your heart and I am excited to see it finished! I had some over-pours on some jewelry pieces a couple of weeks ago and I was too impatient to wait the 12 hours. I wish that I had, lesson learned.

I work on the back of a glass cutting board (with polymer clay). During cold weather, I keep a *very old* heating pad (with a thin cloth cover) underneath the work surface, set on low, so that my newly-conditioned clay doesn't become unworkable too quickly. Maybe that might help resin curing, too.
