Wondering how this resin filled bezel was made?
Find an image you love.
For this project, the artwork on the envelope my 2020 calendar was too good to throw away.
Argh. I accidentally tore one edge of this beautiful artwork. But, I think it will still fit into my bezel. This bezel is deep.
Press the edge of your bezel into the paper image to make it easier to cut out the circle needed.
Glue your paper image to the bezel and then seal all the paper 2-3 times with mod-podge or a gel medium. You want to make sure the paper is completely sealed, making it seem waterproof. Resin can “stain” paper making it look dark in any area not protected by sealing. I now wait 24 hours before my next step. This allows the glue/medium to thoroughly dry.
I like to pour a thin layer of resin. This ensures that everything looks good and that there are no stains. If there was a stain, I could cover it in my next layer. This only needs an overnight cure before I work on the next layer.
I apply some inclusions on top of the first layer of resin. This glued layer must dry properly before covering with more resin.
After inclusions are dry and glue is clear I pour in resin. I let this cure for as long as possible. Ideally 48 hours.
