In my post from last week about which resin bracelet people preferred, the colorful, stretchy style won by a mile! As I embark on making more of these, I want to include pictures on the process and just how it gets from a sketch pad to a finished piece of resin jewelry.
Part 1 of the resin bracelet making process
Before I ever start making the resin bracelets, I collect different kinds of paper to go in the bracelets. These papers could be vintage papers, wall papers, computer generated art, and such. I keep them all together and every so often go through them to group together ones that would be complementary in their presentation. For these, I liked the flowers and the pinks and chose to pair these three together as a bracelet.
Before I can use the papers in the resin, I have to seal them. I use a decoupage glue (general catch all term for many different kinds of sticky, sealing glue) to cover both sides of the paper. What happens if I don't seal the papers? See my blog post with one of my resin bracelet prototypes.
