How To Glaze a Feather With Jewelry Resin-Part One

I really like feathers and would add them to jewelry all the time if they were not so fragile.  A piece like this looks great, but over time, the feather may lose some of it's sections.
I do prefer them permanently encased in resin!  
To achieve this, I glaze the feather with three and sometime four separate applications of Jewelry Resin.

Glaze Coat One:  
Cover the feather front with a good thick layer of resin which I paint on.
24 hours later you can see that a lot of the resin was absorbed through the feather to the back.  
I like working on a non stick sheet but you can clearly see that the tiny dots on the sheet are now also on the back of the feather...this is a look I do not like.
Glaze Coat Two:  
Apply with a paint brush a goo thick layer of Jewelry Resin to the back side.

Hi Carmi- Great project. I always wondered how to get the resin on feathers. Quick question, how do you clean the resin off the brush? Or do you use a throw away brush?
Thanks!!

Hi Mona, resin on a brush is a "one time use" for me. While I do hang on to the brushes...I'll show you why in a few weeks....I don't have any luck cleaning them and prefer not to let the resin be washed down a drain.

Plus if it's a cheap paintbrush, sometimes the resin eats the bristles and then when you use it later, the bristles start disintegrating onto your work.
