This is a new pendant I made in my own mold.
The coronation of Napoleon as Emperor of the French took place today in 1804. So my post is timed!
A few months ago I showed you how I made this mold of a Napoleon bottle cap opener with EasyMold.
Since the bottle opener extended over my mold....I had an area that was open and resin often ran off the edge when I filled my mold.
So I made a Napoleonic repair. I have no idea why I didn't think of this sooner. I simply made another small batch of EasyMold and attached it to the edge to create this new ridge. Now resin does not flow off the edge!
I pour any colour resin into my molds.
In this case, I poured in a batch of leftover red resin and I didn't have enough. I have a few open areas which I actually love!
I glued this metal ring to the back of my molded piece to both stabilize it and to finish it processionally.
I used metallic wax to colour my piece.
Napoleon looked great darker.
Resin spray seals the metallic wax beautifully so I don't get any colour transfer to clothing.
Now I just need to build my necklace!
