We’re playing with EnviroTex Craft Resin this week. Carmi over at the Resin Crafts Blog has shown us some fantastic techniques. Our team has dived right in and created some gorgeous things to inspire you to try this craft. The possibilities are infinite with all the wonderful micas, glitters, etc in the Fran•táge Essentials Collection. Plus our images are just perfect for jewelry and home decor, even the really big ones!
I had some serious fun with these teeny, tiny, tart tins I found in the Michaels jewelry aisle! They’re so cute and you get so many in a package! They are just 1/2″ in diameter, so I used a 1/2″ punch to punch out parts of our Fantasy Tiles Perfectly Clear Stamps set.
Here are the products I used:
I spritzed a panel of Kraft cardstock with Copper Shimmer Spritz from Tsukineko. Then I stamped several of the Fantasy Tiles images (these are inchies) in VersaFine Vintage Sepia ink. I knew I could only use a 1/2 ” circle from each picture for my teeny, tiny, tart tins, so I punched a circle from another paper and used it to find the area I wanted on each image.
Then I put them each in the bottom of a tin with some white glue. I painted white glue over each one following the directions, added Bronze Glass Glitter to the edges of them with more white glue, and then poured my resin. I ended up doing a bunch of them and coloring part of them with colored pencil to highlight the designs. I put a glue dot on the back of each one and glued them to waxed paper on a cookie sheet for pouring. That held them still. Then I put a magnet on the back of each. I adore these!! Tins, Resin, Magnets, Glue Dots all from Michaels Crafts Stores.

** Why do I need to SHARE the post ? Because Facebook has changed the way they show posts from a Page to that Page’s fans. (There are millions of posts a day now!) When you “share” a post it lets Facebook know you want to see posts from us. It also tells your friends what we’re up to and extends our “reach”. Maybe they will come like us, too! That IS why we’re doing this, to meet more people!
