It can seem complicated and a little intimidating, but once you learn the basics and just do it, you will discover that it isn't as difficult as you imagined - and then start having lots of fun!
To help get you started and take the plunge into making resin jewelry, I am pleased to announce that the 32 page booklet - Getting Started With Resin Jewelry - is now available!
This booklet has been designed with the beginner in mind, with thorough explanations of the following:
Materials List including both necessary and optional materials, supplies and equipment.
Description of materials, with explanations of why and how to use them properly.
Instructions and photos covering:
- Preparing and mixing your resin
- Pouring into molds
- Removing Air Bubbles
- Adding color
- Adding Inclusions
- Embedding Objects and Paper
- Finishing, sanding, and re-coating
- Creating a finished product
Much of the basic information is similar to the tutorials available for free on my blog. (Look on the right hand column for links.) The information and instruction has been refined, some details added, and many more photos included.
A favorite feature is the addition of 2 step-by-step complete project tutorials, which will walk you through the process, as a complete beginner, and give you the final result of a finished, usable item.
The projects include instruction for 2 of the most popular resin applications:
Embedding paper images into resin; and embedding candies and inclusions, and using glitter.
This 32 page booklet is only $5.00. Your purchase includes email support in answering any questions you may have along the way.
After purchase, you will receive an automatic download of your booklet in a pdf file. If you have any problems receiving the file please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
