wow theres a lot of talent here my last post in this thread was in 2006..I need to get back into crafting now that the twins are a bit older...I miss my clay!!
Wow! Thanks for the tip! I may have found a new craft this weekend!mommie2angels : please please please tell me how you made those fabulous necklaces, they would be great favors for my DD birthday! How difficult are they to make? I like to try to make things but am not always sucessful to any tips would be appreciated.[/QUOTE
Oh thank you so much! Which ones? They are all easy to make. The glass tile ones you create your image or get an image from the Internet. I print onto photo paper. Put some type of adhesive such as diamond glaze, 3D lacquer, modge podge or resin on the glass to adhere it to the image. Then you coat the back with one of the same adhesives to protect it.
The bottle caps are basically the same except I run the image through the little Xyron sticker maker to adhere to the bottlecap. Then I use
Resin on top. You can use epoxy dots if you would rather but I love to pour resin so I use that.
The silver tiles that the Princess Tiana ones are in I again run my image through the xyron sticker maker to adhere to tray. I use an epoxy dot on those because I seem to get too many bubbles with the resin inside the tray.
I hope this helps. If it's not clear instructions or you have questions please let me know. Thanks!
Although I do many types of crafts, I have never worked with resin. Your bottlecaps look so perfect, does the resin self-level? How do you keep it within the edges of the cap?Wow! Thanks for the tip! I may have found a new craft this weekend!
The resin does self level. I go around the edge of the bottle cap first & it kinda of fills itself in.Although I do many types of crafts, I have never worked with resin. Your bottlecaps look so perfect, does the resin self-level? How do you keep it within the edges of the cap?
