Every year I buy one container of tea from Mariage Freres. They package a limited edition tea each year into this metal canister. I am not sure if I like the tea as much as I like the canister.....so I buy one every year to add to my collection. I absolutely love their choice of colours, design and packaging.
I am making a new necklace that will feature images from the package. You can see the interesting one-inch circles I was able to punch out of the cardboard box.
I glued my circles into bezels and I am making an extra effort to make sure my paper is sealed. The box is card stock...so if I don't seal all the edges properly, I may have resin seep into the paper fibers and this will appear like a stain...which I do not like. I've blogged about stains a lot. I focused my efforts on sealing the edges with more than 3 applications of mod-podge.
Twenty minutes after I poured in my resin I did notice that one bezel had a stain. See those edges...I missed a spot somehow. I'll show you how I can fix that in tomorrow's post!
The bezels are now happily curing. I have an over-flow situation with one bezel. I am not going to touch or move it...I'll also explain a simple solution for this problem tomorrow!
