Oh Clay! Here we go!

Environmental Technologies (ETI) introduced their Epoxy Resin Clay for Jewelry at January’s CHA, and we couldn’t wait to have an opportunity to play with it! The two part clay is stored in separate containers, then when you mix it, it cures to form a hard, resin surface. It’s so cool how embellishments like glitter or mica pressed into the clay become permanent without glue.  The clay also sticks in the bezel without adhesive. Is it magic? We think so! Our designers have been playing with the clay this week along with ETI’s Jewelry Resin, and we’re all always learning from the Resin Crafts Blog Diva Carmi Cimicata.

Carmi used our Winter Trees Perfectly Clear Stamps (now retired) for one of her classes she taught at CHA. We were excited and impressed with how great her project turned out:

Carmi mixed a small ball of two part resin, pressed it into the bezel, then stamped the image with Jet Black StazOn™ Ink by Imagine Crafts Tsukineko®. She dusted the scene with some PearlEx on a small paint brush to add color, then she pressed some micro beads into the clay! WOW… let it cure and you’re done! It’s so super easy! We squealed with delight and said, “Let us try! Let us try!”

Here’s what our designers came up with to share today! Plus Carmi has a new post at her blog!
