On the third day of Christmas we add some bling. There is always room for bling. Ice resin is a fabulous, jewellery quality cold resin that is easy to use. You can get it in syringe or in larger bottles. The syringe is a perfect way to start and see if you like this as it measures out the two parts of the resin perfectly without you worrying. Once measured out, you simply stir gently and then use it in hundreds of different ways: to fill bezels, seal paper, glaze objects or even as a strong, clear glue. There hundreds of uses and if you go to You tube, dozens of tutorials and projects. Today I am going to keep it a bit simple and stick to the basics.
This is todays 12 Days bundle:
You get some resin, a packet of Mica Tiles (trust me you are going to want those) and three to five bezels. The bezels will vary from bundle to bundle. Lets see how to use it and get some ideas.
This video introduces the creator of the ice resin and shows you how quick and easy it is to use.
Here is a video showing you some simple steps in adding media to the bezel. Take the ideas and add your own bits, found objects, paper, fabric, glitter, beads, anything and seal it with the resin.
I have made numerous embellishments with bezels and ice resin. At this time of year, this is a great way to personalise Christmas ornaments. Here are a couple of samples I have made:
