Stampendous Glitter and Mica Flakes Tags with Jewelry Resin

I am very excited to show you, on the last day of my blog hop with the Stampendous Design team, my final projects. 
 I already know from early experiments this week that vintage glass looks amazing under resin.  Now was my chance to play with Stampendous micro glitterAs you can see I had a really nice assortment to choose from.  I also chose to work with the Nunn Design raised tag rectangles.
 I applied Quick grip glue to my tag surface.  
(Note that I left some open areas.)
I let the glue air dry for a few minutes.
 Then I dropped glitter over the surface.  Quick Grip dries quickly, so I knew if I waited, the glitter would stick in some spots and not in others.  I wanted to try and make these surfaces look like gem stones.
  Here are my three tags drying.
 When the tags were dry I brushed away the excess glitter and made a small batch of Jewelry Resin.
 I brushed resin across the surface of the resin tag.  
I call this a glaze layer.
Now I do get asked all the time....can you wash out the brush?  I don't even try.  I buy my brushes at the dollar store and I know they can't be cleaned.  Sometimes I recycle the wood though!

 When my glaze layer of resin was in place I carefully placed some FRAN-TAGE bronzed mica flakes on the surface.
 I let everything cure and was so happy with the results!

  Here is how I am going to wear these tags.

 This is my attempt to create some "manly necklaces."

 The bronze flakes in this tag remind me a gold mine!

I had such a great week working with Stampendous products.

Thank you for all your support and comments!

I love MICA! They do look like gold flakes. :) All three pendants are sooooo cool and artsy and rival any of the more expensive jewelry pieces out there. The biggest thing is they are WAYYYYY easier and cost soooo much less! Thank u for joining with stampendous this week! I will continue to follow ur work and these awesome products!
