Grateful Love Layered Necklace by Polly Hendrickson

gratefullove-pollyhendrickson-iceresinI found a photograph of two young children looking lovingly at each other and thought that this picture would be a great focal point for a necklace. I also love the romantic look of the vintage drawer pull, and decide to use them together. I chose to have three layers, and knew that I wanted to use some of the small bezels offered by Art Mechanique™, and wanted to include words in them to keep with the romantic theme.

Enjoy!

polly-2-step-outInstructions
Sheet Metal Heart Charm
1) Begin by cleaning your Bronze Sheet metal by scrubbing it lightly with Steel Wool, 4 0tt. Next, using your Jeweler’s Saw, cut two pieces of the sheet metal into the rectangle shape and drill a hole in the center to begin cutting out the heart with your saw. Thread the blade through the hole to begin cutting. Once done, use metal files, and engraver, and hammers to add texture to the sheet metal. Using the engraver, write the word “Love” in numerous places on the sheet metal below the heart.
2) Drill 4 holes in each corner on both pieces of the sheet metal, making sure they match exactly in order to allow the screws to be straight. Next, attach the picture of the boy and girl to the bottom piece of sheet metal, making sure that the holes are left uncovered. Using the Metal Punch Pliers, punch matching holes in the Mica (cut to size) so that the Metal Screws will go through. Drill two extra holes on the top piece of Sheet Metal in the center just above and below the heart.
3) Prepare the Heart in a sandwich method. The bottom piece with the picture first, next the Mica sheet, and then one at a time, place an Eyelet and then the top metal piece with the heart and a screw. Each screw will need to be handled individually, one at a time. Once all 4 screws are in place, add the washer and then twist until snug. Trim the extra – long screws with your Wire Cutters. Using the rounded side of a Ball Pein hammer, lightly tap the screw above the washer to allow it to spread so that the screw will be in place permanently.

1-polly-close-up-ICE-Resin4) Gently feed a jump ring into the two remaining holes, one on top and one on bottom. Wire wrap the Crystal bead to hang from the bottom, and wire wrap the top to be able to have something to hang from the Vintage drawer pull. Cut 3 pieces of Organza Ribbon, one in each color, and tie them all in a bow.
Vintage Drawer Pull
1) Lightly cover the Vintage drawer pull with Iced Enamels Medium and allow to dry. Sprinkle the Ivory Relique, Pewter Relique, Turquoise Relique in small amounts in the areas you want them. Use the Heat Gun to heat the metal so that the Iced Enamels will adhere to the metal. Allow to cool, and then cover lightly with ICE Resin (directions below) to protect it.
2) After 24 hours, punch or drill hole in the bottom center and the top right and left of the drawer pull so the jump rings can be attached. Attach the jump rings.

2-polly-ice-resin-layeredSmall Bezels
1) Cut the words you want to use from the Rue Romantique Flip Book (Projects & Clip Art), and place them inside each bezel. Add some ICED Enamels® Shattered Inclusions – Opal on each side of each word.
2) Mix the ICE Resin® according to package directions. Allow to sit for several minutes before filling the bezels with it. Once the bezels are filled, allow them to dry and cure for about 24 hours. (See number 1 under Vintage Drawer Pull to use the rest of the ICE Resin®.
3) Attach the jump rings to the center of the bezels as well as on the outside of the bezels, and attach to the chain. Attach the remaining jump rings on top of the Vintage Drawer Pull on both sides, and to the Chain. The final jump ring can now be attached to the bottom of the Vintage Drawer Pull and to the wire wrapped ribbons on top of the Sheet Metal Heart Charm.

Book Page

russianroseearrings-ICE-Resin-organic

Technique:
1: Wipe left over resin from other projects onto some foreign language book page and place on a craft sheet or plastic bag. Leave to cure over night or for 6 to 8 hours. Once cured draw around each of your bezel’s and cut out. Insert the paper into each bezel and glue down.

2: Add a little Iced Enamel Medium onto a piece of foam and dab all around the sides and bottom of all 3 bezels. Sprinkle on the German Silver Relique powder then set with a heat gun. Let cool thoroughly before touching, usually a few minutes is enough time.

3: Working first on the oblong bezel, mix a batch of ICE Resin to the manufacturers specifications. Add a layer into the bottom of the bezel and drop in some Shattered Mica in Raspberry making sure it stays in the bottom 3rd of the bezel only. Place a rose on top of the raspberry mica and angle so it faces out a little. Use a cocktail stick to keep it in position. Let cure for 5 or 6 hours then remove the cocktail stick and top off the bezel with Resin so it is level with the top making sure the rose has been coated with resin also. Let cure over night or for 6 to 8 hours.

4: Place a small amount of resin into the two smaller square bezels and add a rose to each at a jaunty angle. Dribble some Resin over the roses making sure they are completely covered. Let cure over night or for 6 to 8 hours.

5: Top off all three bezels with resin adding a doming layer. Let cure over night or for 6 to 8 hours.

6: Attach chain and embellishments to all three pieces and you are done.

Madonna and Child Necklace by Kim Williams

Kim-Williams-ICE-Resin-Madonna

Several of my ICE Resin® Creative Teammates in their Tips and Technique Videos made a suggestion to keep a few bezels ready to fill on your desk at all times. When you mix ICE Resin® and have a little product remaining in your mixing cup, it can be used rather than tossed away. This necklace is a result of that advice. It has a few drops of mixed resin from about 3 or 4 of my latest projects. This is proof that  ICE Resin® is so well formulated you can literally layer it with your left over mixture time and time again. I even put a few “leftover layers” in the bezel before I added the tiny gold bead chain around the bezel. I love that idea!

Kim Williams, Historically Haute

Materials:
1. Kristen Robinson Rue Romantique style bezel – Large Botanical Oval in Brass tone
2. An image I scanned from an old prayer card
3.  Art Mechanique Paper Sealer
4. Craft Glue
5. ICE Resin®
6. Vintage Chain
7. 14 Gauge Copper Wire for the closure.
8. Jax Brown/Black Darkening Fluid
9.  A few jump rings
10. A few beads I wired together for a dangle.

15756499441_50a02e358e_zInstructions:

1. Seal your image using Art Mechanique  paper sealer. Painting several coats to completely seal the paper. Allow the image to dry thoroughly between coats.
2. Cut your image to fit in the bezel and use just a drop of craft glue to secure the image to the back of the bezel.
3. As I mentioned above I used this bezel for leftover mixed resin pouring it in layers. You however, may choose to make the necklace with just 1 pour of resin.
4. I waited a few hours after the first pour and using a wooden toothpick placed the beaded chain around the edges. The toothpick helped me settle the chain in the correct place around the bezel.
5. Allow the resin to cure for 48 hours.
6. I fashioned my own closure for this necklace using 14 gauge copper wire. I annealed the wire to soften it to manipulate the shape. I balled one end of the wire for a decorative flair. Using my round nose pliers and bailing pliers I made the hook and eye. I buffed the closure pieces to remove annealing crust. And finished them up with a little Jax darkening fluid. You may wish to buy a premade closure at your favorite hobby store.
7. I used 18 inches of vintage chain. Using jump rings I attached the bezel and the closure pieces to the chain.
8. Finally, I added a bead dangle to heighten the romance of the necklace; attaching it to dangle down the back of the chain using a jump ring next to the hook.

Technique:
1. Cut (3) pieces of 9” 20 gauge bronze wire and wrap in appx. 1” circle bezels.
2. Cut (3) pieces of 3” 20 gauge bronze wire and hammer them flat. Draw a ball on each end using a torch and quench in water.
3. Wire wrap the flat wire around the circle bezels where the ends meet to hold the circle shape.
4. Using a disposable paintbrush, paint a light coat of Iced Enamels™ Medium onto each bezel. Dip each into different colors of Iced Enamels™, tap off excess and melt using a craft heat gun.
5. Mix ICE Resin® according to manufacturer instructions. Using a disposable paintbrush, paint a thin layer over the enameled bezels and let dry for 24 hours.
6. Affix each bezel onto pieces of packing tape and push firmly to get as good of a seal as you can. Cut a couple thin pieces of tape and press them onto the outer edge of the bezel to form a perpendicular wall to help prevent resin from oozing out.
7. Mix another batch of resin. Using stir stick, drip a small amount into the bottoms of the bezels and sprinkle shattered mica in each and let dry for 12 hours.
8. Using different holiday stamps and different color inkpads, stamp your designs onto transparency material then cut out to size of bezels.
9. Mix another batch of ICE Resin®. Using tweezers, dip stamped transparency into resin and place in bezels. Cut a piece of rhinestone chain and add as desired to each bezel to add some “bling”. Let dry for 24 hours.
10. When dry, peel bezels from packing tape and snip/file any resin that may have oozed out. (TIP: I found using lemon essential oil on a paper towel to remove the stickiness from the back of the bezels left by the packing tape works very well).
11. Drill a hole into the dried resin on each bezel and insert jump ring.
12. Cut (3) pieces of 20 gauge bronze wire and form into earring hoops and attach charm.

You won’t want to squirrel this acorn away – Clare Horner shares how to cast this ornament for your Holiday Tree

clare-horner-acorn-ICE-Resin

EeeeEEEEEeeeeeee Christmas is coming!!! I love Christmas, especially when it snows which is not very often these days. I always have my fingers crossed for a white Christmas! I love Christmas so much that every year my close family receive not only a card but a decoration for their tree. This year I have decided to combine the wonders of ICE Resin and IndigoBlu, one of our preferred partners, together to create this stunning little acorn bauble. We don’t really have acorns around here, so when I saw a garish looking tree ornament in an ”Everything a Pound” shop I knew I just had to have it and turn it into something worth Christmas.

Thanks for visiting,

Clare Horner, Got Paint in My Hair

Tools and Materials:
ICE Resin®
Rue Romantique™ Red Velvet Ribbon
Art Mechanique™ Jump Rings
Art Mechanique™ Molding Putty
IndigoBlu Mega Flake Manchester Tart
IndigoBlu Metallic Paint Goldfinger
indigoBlu Acrylic Paint Hot Chocolate
Ball Chain from stash
Acorn Ornament
Wooden lollypop sticks
Self grip tweezers
Paint Brush

15699767585_0ea615c33c_z
Technique:

1: Clean and dry the piece you wish to make your mold from, in this case the acorn. Following the instructions, mix a suitable amount of molding putty and press the item into it, making sure to build a wall to contain your resin. Let this cure thoroughly.

2: Mix ICE Resin to the manufacturers instructions. Take a few of the IndigoBlu Mega Flakes at a time tearing them into smaller pieces. Carefully add the Mega Flake to the resin and mix in. Pour this mixture into the mold so it comes up to the bottom of the top cup part of the acorn. Let set for three to four hours.

4: Mix up another batch of ICE Resin, this time adding in a small amount of IndigoBlu Metallic paint in Goldfinger. Pour this into the mold topping it up to the top. Grip an Art Mechanique jump ring in a pair of self gripping tweezers and balance the jump ring just inside of the top of the resin in the mold. Use wooden sticks to keep the tweezers from getting resin on them. You might need to weigh down the tweezers as I did and shown in the photo. Let cure over night or for seven to eight hours.

5: Take the cast acorn out of the mold carefully. Taking a paint brush and some Hot Chocolate IndigoBlu paint, dry brush the top of the acorn to add a little depth. Let dry for 10 to 15 minutes.

6: Create a small bow with the gorgeous Rue Romantique ribbon around the jump ring that is inside the acorn, attach a piece of ball chain and hang on your tree.

Place a Christmas Postage Stamp under ICE Resin in Kim Williams’ “Santa Baby” Bracelet

xmas-stamp-bracelet-ICE-RESIN-kimwilliams

Eartha Kit singing “Santa Baby” suddenly popped into my head when I was forging thru a stack of ephemera in my mother’s desk. I stumbled upon these 32 cent Christmas postage stamps. My mother loved postage stamps and one Christmas she selected stamps for each member of our family: mounted them on card stock and framed them for our Christmas gifts. For me she selected fashion stamps with women in lovely gowns of the Empire Period of Fashion. These tiny works of art are perfect to use in a bezel. You can also use a stamp that has been removed from an envelope. The markings done by the postal service are very nice and don’t take away from the beauty of the stamp.

Materials:
1. Postage Stamp
2. Hobnail Bezel that best fits your stamp
3. Ice Enamels™ Relique Powder – I used Garnet
4. ICE Resin® and German Glass Glitter – I used Sky Blue
5. Assorted Beads
6.  Jewelry Wire
7. Pom Pom Trim
8. A Button
9. Sewing Needle
10. Sewing Thread
11. Round Elastic for Jewelry Work
12. Fray Check or Craft Glue for Fabric

15467107768_fabe44d171_z

Directions:
1.Apply Ice Enamel to the edge of the bezel. Follow directions on the packaging.
2.Mix a small amount of ICE Resin.
3.Seal the Ice Enamel on the edge of the bezel by painting with ICE Resin.
4. Save a small amount of resin. Stir in a generous amount of German Glass Glitter. Pour into bezel and allow curing for 6 to 8 hours. Do not fill bezel to capacity.
5. Trim your postage stamp to fit the bezel. I like leaving the raglan edge on the stamp when possible. When the resin has cured and you can handle the bezel place the stamp in the center of the bezel.
6.Mix a second batch of ICE Resin, allowing the resin to cure until it is very thick, drizzle the resin into the bezel to capacity. Allow curing. Best results overnight.
7.Create 2 sections of wired beads about 3 to 4 inches in length. I used about 3 inches of wire wrapping about 5 to 6 times around the bead. Reserve a bead to wire your bead chain to the bezel.
8.Measure your wrist adding 1 inch to the length. Cut pom pom trim to that length.
9.Hand Stitch the bezel to the center of the pom pom trim on each side of the bezel. Tie off on either side. I also added a little craft glue under the bezel to secure the trim even more.
10.Hand stitch the chain to the trim at each wire wrapped connector. Tie off thread each time.
11.If you have any beads left over that do not fit on the trim they will be left on as a dangle.
12.Turn the bracelet over and use Fray Check or craft glue for fabric at each place you stitched. This will ensure that the threads will not pull through the trim.
13.Sew a button on one end of the bracelet
14.Using a large needle for upholstery thread the elastic cord and fashion a loop on the opposite end of your bracelet. Tie the cord in a square knot. Put Frey Check on the ends of the cord or use craft glue.

Use Relique Powders, Shattered Mica and ICE Resin to create Polly Hendrickson’s ‘The First Noel’ Lantern

xmas-lantern-pollyhendrickson-ice-resin

I love Christmas, and decorating for Christmas is one of my favorite things to do! I saw this lantern that holds a candle and wanted to add ICE Resin® to it, using ICE Resin® Paper. I think it will look great as a small centerpiece or on a Mantel. I really enjoy using candles and the light that they project is amazing! I chose to use the paper with words on the top or lid of the lantern, and wanted some sparkle so I added some Silver tones for sparkle. It holds a small votive candle and some small berries for the inside, adding to the look of Christmas. I decided to use red for the bezel, and then added the words “The First Noel”, from the Christmas Carol.

Polly Hendrickson

15652456065_7e448a61f6_z

Materials
ICE Resin® and Disposable Paint Brushes
Pages from an old German book, plus words for inside the bezel
Iced Enamels™ Medium and a Heat Gun
Iced Enamels™ in Garnet Relique, Shattered Mica in Silver, and ICED Enamels™ Relique Glitz Powders- Silver
German Glass Glitter in Silver
Art Mechanique™ Mixed Metal Oval Hobnail Bezel, Antique Silver
Lantern Candle Holder with White Votive Candle
Red berries with leaves to surround the Candle
Rue Romantique™ Ribbon- RED

Directions
1) Mix the ICE Resin according to package directions. Tear the German book pages into small pieces.
2) Paint a light coating of ICE Resin on the top of the lantern, working on only one side at a time. Begin laying the torn book pages over the top, in no particular order, so that they overlap each other. As you do this, lightly paint more ICE Resin over the top of the paper. Continue this process until all 4 sides of the top of the lantern are covered.
3) Sprinkle all four sides with the Shattered Mica in Silver, and Iced Enamels Relique Glitz Powders- Silver and German Glass Glitter in Silver. Allow to dry for 24 hours.
4) Lightly paint the Iced Enamels Medium all over the Mixed Metal Oval Hobnail Bezel.
5) Sprinkle the Iced Enamels in Garnet Relique in the areas you want it. Using the Heat gun, carefully heat the bezel so that the Iced Enamels will adhere to the metal. Allow to cool.
6) Cover the Iced Enamels with a light coating of ICE Resin. Allow to dry 24 hours.
7) Add the words to the bezel, and follow with the ICE Resin. Fill until you have a nice dome, and allow to dry for 24 hours.
8) Feed the Rue Romantique Ribbon through both sides of the bezel jump rings, tie them together and place over the top handle of the lantern, so that it hangs down over the side.
