Mixing up our Media with Jewelry Resin and Clay!

20130528-222151.jpg

We’re so embracing the Mixed Media trend here at Stampendous – We’re even attending the CREATE Mixed Media Retreat this week in Irvine, CA! Two of the media we adore playing with are Jewelry Resin and Epoxy Clay both from Environmental Technologies (ETI). Making your own jewelry and gift items using Stampendous stamps and Essentials is so much fun!

Our designers are blogging along this week with Carmi Cimicata of the Resin Craft Blog to show you how easy and fun these terrific products can be, AND we have extra to share with some lucky winners! We’ll choose random commenters from our blog and those of our designers and pick three lucky winners to try these products! Our prize package includes BOTH the clay and resin, plus a nice assortment of bezels from Nunn Designs, and, of course, some stamps and Essentials from Stampendous!

The Memorial Day weekend made me want to play with some resin and create some patriotic themed earrings. These will be so wearable through the Fourth of July at least (with Flag Day in there as well), so I’m excited about how sparkly they are! I didn’t use any stamps, but I used some of our great Essentials including – Red Glass Glitter, Royal Blue Glass Glitter, and White Mica Fragments from the Fran•táge line of Essentials.

I poured a little resin in each space by dripping it off the mixing stick, then I put red glass glitter in that thin layer of resin. I waited about 12 hours then poured another thin layer of resin in the molds and added royal blue glass glitter to that layer. Then, after another 24 hours and a good hard set, I poured a very thin layer of resin, added white mica fragments, then filled the cabochon molds to the top with resin. These really great cabochon molds came from Resin Obsession.

I’m pretty happy with my earrings! Can’t wait until Flag Day so I can give some to everyone!

  1. Ooooohhhh!!! A whole tray full of red, white and blue cabachons! I could make sets for my sister, my niece, mybest friend and myself and still have some left over for pendants! The glas glitter layered llike that was a really cool idea and gives them incredible dimension and depth!
