These new bezels feature the most delightful imagery!
At Michaels this week I stumbled across a new line of products from an artist named Jane Davenport.
There were several collections of washi tape in her product line and I picked up two of them.
I work for John Bead Corp and lucky for me they have several bezel collections.
I like working in both the deep and shallow bezels.
The washi tape is in various widths. I collaged the imagery I liked into the openings.
This is how my bezels looked when I was finished working with the washi tape.
What you do not see is that I applied a layer of Mod Podge to seal everything into place.
I let that dry overnight.
I always like to have some glitter or metallic in my resin pieces.
For this project I used thin lines of gold stickers.
Then I made a batch of Resin Obsession Super Clear resin to pour into my openings.
Something which I do, which is an extra step, is that I usually do two separate resin pours.
Pour one only partially fills each bezel opening. This way I can be sure that everything cures beautifully and add something extra if it does not.
When the first cure was solid (one day later) I added some extra marker lines and dots. This just adds some extra dimension to my pieces and these markings appear to float.
Then I mixed my second batch of resin and filled everything to the brim.
I love them!
I may do a third pour to create a dome on each piece.
For now, they are ready to wear.
