Resin Pendant Drops



I am almost finished with the production of these resin pendants.  
There are three layers of resin.


Layer one filled the bottom of my molds.  I colored the resin black and let these cure for a day.


The I added my paper images to the surface of the cured black resin.  
I sealed all my paper with several layers of mod podge and let everything dry for a day.  
Then, I poured my second layer of resin to cover all these inclusions.  
That resin I let cure for two days.


When I took my pendants out of the mold I noticed I had a few areas where the edge of the resin was higher than the surface.  I could have sanded these edges and resealed, 
but I decided to add a third layer called "the doming layer" of resin.


This third layer I applied with a brush.
I let this cure for another two days.


I still have a few edges that are rough, 
so I'll sand those away to complete this project.

Otherwise, I love these drops!


I am sharing an affiliate link for the mold I used for the last round of pendants.

This is great Carmi. I think most people think about working backwards in molds. This technique gives you another option!

Hi Carmi! I absolutely love these pendants! I'm researching my first resin project and this is just the type of thing I would like to try. I have a craft/lifestyle blog and I'm going to do a round up post with the fun I projects I find while researching. Can I include these pendants with appropriate link backs?

Thanks!
