The Festive Pendant

 My festive pendant turned out great!  The image I choose was from a vintage Christmas card I purchased in Paris in the spring.  I had to tweak it a little in photoshop before I could use it in such a small setting.
Okay.  How did I get to this point.
In yesterdays post I showed you how I sealed my paper image with several coats of decoupage medium to protect it.

 My next step was to add some glitter glue around the edges of the image.  I always love this effect.
Then I did the first of two resin pours.  I poured resin into the bezel until it was half full.  Roughly 1/8 of an inch depth.  I let that cure for about 12 hours.
 At the 12 hour mark, the surface is relatively hard...but you can damage it.  I carefully added some glitter pen markings and highlights.
Then I did my final pour of resin.  See how my glitter pen markings look like they are suspended in glass?  Two pours are always the best, especially when working in a fairly deep bezel like this one.

This post was designed, photographed and written by me.

Ahh....Paris in the Spring....something I long for one day! I love the shape of this bezel. Very unique. It looks rather large, so that is not something I would choose for jewelry but I love that this has a vintage Christmas feel and would look great hanging on the tree! Well done, my friend! Have a blessed Christmas! Enjoy the day. Erin

WOW! Looks like Christmas magic to me. That idea would be great on a angel or fairy. Thanks for all the wonderful ideas you do all year long. Paula C.
