In addition to getting used to epoxy clay, I also have wanted to encase a few things in clear resin. I created a small circle of Angelina Fibers after using my iron to fuse several colors of it together. Then I cut out a small image of an angel from a Holy Card. I coated them with acrylic sealer spray and set them in the bezel with a tiny bit of glue- just to keep them from floating up. Then I slowly built up and cured several layers of resin.
I really like the way she came out. But, for some reason, I had the hardest time photographing this so it would not be slightly blurry. I think she would pair nicely with some of the 1950s and 1960s vintage jewelry elements I have.
I currently have some new silicone molds curing. I wanted to make a few more resin pieces for jewelry and was contemplating trying out some collage on them. So definitely stay tuned for the results of that!
