Halloween “Poison”, a necklace with Iced Enamels

poison-icedenamels-jennifercabicNot only is Halloween one of my favorite times of year, skulls are also a favorite of mine. You have probably noticed my skull ring in a few of the videos I have posted for the Design Team.

In addition to the Vampiress Necklace for my Halloween project, I could not pass up an opportunity to make a necklace using a skull. I had one skull bead that I used for a different project, so I borrowed it to make this spooky skull out of resin. The mold I made is a keeper and I will be casting more of them out of resin in the future!

Technique:
1. Mix molding putty according to directions. Insert skull bead, face down and let cure for about 15 minutes.
2. Mix ICE Resin® according to manufacturer instructions. Stir in white acrylic paint. Pour into mold and let dry for 24 hours.
3. Pop cured resin out of mold. Drill holes into eyes and completely through the back of the skull. Paint the skull with acrylic paint.
4. For the bezel, use disposable paintbrush and paint on Iced Enamels Medium™. Sprinkle with Iced Enamels™ Relique in Garnet, tap off excess and melt with craft heat gun. Let cool. Repeat with Pewter and Ivory.
5. Using a sponge or fingers, “antique” gently swipe over the cooled Iced Enamels™ with Spiced Chai and Jet Black inks.
6. Cut a piece of Illusion Film to fit bezel. Place on bezel. Make marks on the film with a scribe or something pointy through the eyes of the skull.
7. Drill holes through the film and bezel making sure to hold the film firmly in place. Accuracy is important for the screws to fit through.
8. Insert screws through the eyes of the skull, through the film and then through the bezel. Affix nut and fasten tightly. Snip the backs of the screws flus with the nuts. Rivet them flat.
9. Mix small batch of ICE Resin® according to manufacturer instructions. Using a toothpick, drip a drop or two of resin into eye sockets of skull. Using tweezers, insert one piece of rhinestone chain into each socket. Let dry for 24 hours.

Queen of Bling Dog Tag for your beloved furry friend

USE dogtag1-kim-willimas-iced-enamelsLet’s make a personalized dog tag for your best friend. No matter what name you’ve chosen either traditional or fancy, your pet deserves to sport a “one of a kind” dog tag.

ICE Resin® makes the most adorable Silhouettes to use in your dog tag bezel. Using the little doghouse and the doggie in a bezel was just the perfect inspiration to creating this project. I even added some rhinestone chain because my Olive is a bling queen just like her mother!

Kim Williams, Historically Haute Blog

Materials and Tools:

dog tag 2 kwLarge Hob Nail Bezel by Art Mechanique™
House and Dog Silhouettes by Art Mechanique™
ICE Resin® Plunger Kit
Iced Enamels™ Relique Powders: Ivory, Chartreuse, Turquoise, Carnelian and Torched Copper
Iced Enamels™ Medium
Disposable paintbrush
Measuring cup and a craft stick
Packaging Tape
Regular Scotch Tape
Sanding pad or file
Heat Gun
Scissors
Rhinestone Chain
Preprinted name of your pet, home address and a phone number if desired (I used 11 sized font for name and 8 for address). NOTE: As a precaution against spammer, etc., part of the address has been whited out.

Instructions:

dog tag 3 kw1. Remove 1 ring connection from the large hobnail bezel and use a sanding pad to smooth rough edges.
2. Using packaging tape cover your printed pet’s name and the information you plan to include in your bezel with the tape.
3. Use a craft stick to burnish your tape on the paper so that the resin does not seep under the tape and stain the paper.
4. Paint a light coat of Ice Enamels Medium on your doggie silhouettes. Sprinkle the silhouettes with Iced Enamel powder. The solid one I did in Ivory and the cutout tummy one I did in Torched Copper. Using the heat gun set the powder. Allow to cool Silhouettes will be very hot. Handle carefully.

dog tag 4 kw5. Stack and glue the open belly doggie to the solid doggie. Allow to dry

6. To create a grass and sky background in the Hob Nail Bezel use regular Scotch Tape to mask off the area of the sky so that it will have a straight edge. The desired look is to have ¾ of the area at the top of the bezel be done in the Turquoise powder. Set with heat gun. Allow to cool before you remove the tape.
7. After allowing the Turquoise area to cool completely, mask off the top portion of the bezel using the same method as when you did the bottom 1/4. Apply the medium and apply Chartreuse powder. Set with heat gun. Allow to cool before handling.
8. Trim your pet’s name and the information to fit the doghouse and the tummy area of the dog silhouette.
dog-tag-5-kw9. Glue the name and information tag to the silhouettes. I used the Iced Enamel Medium for glue.
10. Place your silhouettes in the bezel.
11. Mix 2 ounces of ICE Resin® as per package directions. And allow to set until the resin is the thickness of Karo Syrup. I find it is infinitely easier to allow the resin to set for 20 or more minutes until it is very thick. Drizzle the resin in the bezel until it is 3/4ths full. Allow to set for 6 to 8 hours.
12 .Optional: While the resin is still sticky add the rhinestone chain to the bezel. Use a toothpick to guide the chain into position. Mix another small batch of resin and allow to set once again for 20 or 25 minutes. Resin should be very thick. Drizzle the resin in the center of the bezel until doming occurs. If you should happen to over pour use a baby wipe to clean up overspill.
13. Allow the bezel to cure completely about 48 hours. Attach your bezel tag to your pets collar.

Use your staple bezels to create a double sided necklace focal

Are you still holding onto staple bezels and not sure what to do? Polly Hendrickson from the ICE Resin Creative Team shows you just how simple it is to make a focal for a necklace with these unique bezels.

There are still some in stock:

Small pair of  staple bezels: triangles, circles, almond-shaped, as well as medium circles and large almonds.

Or they are available as a special order product in sets of a dozen.

Here’s a blast from the past using an almond staple bezel: Carol La Valley and Jen Cushman made it a few years back. IT’s called EYE in the SKY.

Kinda Halloweenish don’t you think?

Make a Whimsical Halloween Necklace

Halloween-ICEResin-KimWilliams

Trick or treat? This necklace was a total treat to create! I was shopping my regular junk venues a few weeks ago and found the cutest Halloween book for young readers. The illustrations were so adorable. I had to make it mine. The book brought back such fun memories of my childhood; the boy in the focal looks just like my brother dressed as Cowboy John. I knew I would use it for a Halloween themed jewelry design. I hope this necklace takes you back in time to a happy Halloween memory of your own.

Kim Williams, Historically Haute blog

Materials:

1.A found illustration, to be used for the background of the bezel. Search for Halloween themed coloring books, greeting cards, old books etc.
2.One large Art Mechanique Hobnail bezel. Choose the shape that best suites your illustration.
3.Two small round Art Mechanique Hobnail bezels
4.I used two glitter swirl buttons leftover from an old scrapbook Halloween collection
5.Rue Romantique open heart bezel
6.A house and bird silhouette from ICE Resin®
7.Iced Enamels Relique Powder in Carnelian
8.Art Mechanique Ribbon, Orange
9.ICE Resin® Plunger, craft stick, measuring cup, and paint brush
10.24 inches of 18 gauge jewelry wire and 24 inches of 26 gauge jewelry wire
11.Orange and silver metallic beads
12.Craft glue
13.Packaging tape

Directions:

1. Begin by applying the Carnelian Ice Enamels to the open-heart bezel and to the house silhouette as per the directions on the packaging.

scrappy-stuff2. Prepare your illustration by editing it for size to be used in the large bezel. I made a pattern my etching with a pencil over the top of the bezel to make a pattern to use to cut the illustration. Put packaging tape on top and on the bottom of the illustration and burnish thoroughly to seal the edges. Cut for size using the pattern you made. Use a small dot of craft glue to secure the illustration to the inside of the bezel.

pliers3. Mix ICE Resin® it will take about 2 tablespoons to complete the project. When mixture is thin paint the heart and house to seal the Ice Enamels. Use the rest in the hobnail bezels. If you have any leftover resin spread it on any ephemera you may want to use in later projects. Allow bezels and charms to dry for at least 12 hours. Dry time varies depending on your climate.
4. Create a bead chain; wire wrap alternating colored beads (orange and silver) to make a chain. I use 2 of each color for my beaded chain.
5.  Use an orange wire wrapped bead to connect the larger focal to the small hobnail bezels. Then connect the beaded chain to the other end of the small hobnail bezels.
6. Using 12 inches of the orange shear ribbon make a loop with the ribbon and secure the ribbon with 26 gauge wire wrapping it around the ribbon and tucking in the ends. I chose to let my ribbon fray naturally. You may want to use some no-fray to prevent the ribbon from fraying.
7. I ironed my ribbon and I must say I was totally surprised by the reaction of the heat on the ribbon. It changed the texture of the ribbon and gave it a pattern. Try this with caution, as you do not want to burn the ribbon.
8. To the ends of the ribbon I threaded the open-heart bezel on to the ribbon. Threaded the ribbon through, folded and wire wrapping to secure with the 26 gauge wire. Punch a hole in the house silhouette at the top and center of the bottom edge. Use a jump ring to connect the bird to the house and a jump ring to the end of the ribbon wire as done for the other ribbon end. This gives the wearer several options to tie the necklace at the length they feel comfortable.

I must say that Halloween was my favorite holiday growing up. I loved the smell of fall in the air and the crunch of the leaves underfoot as we headed out to trick-or-treat.
As I got older, I loved watching horror movies. I started reading Ann Rice books and was fascinated by the stories of vampires. When I step 5 vampiresscame across this Halloween stencil and stamp set at the craft store I knew I had to make a Vampiress Necklace!

Make these spooky Halloween Cheers Goblets

halloweengoblets-pollyhendrickson-rueromantique

I had the pictures of the veiled woman and eye-patch man from the fabulous previous ICE Resin Team Members Jack & Cat Curio a few years ago, and I knew I wanted to use them in my Halloween project. I wanted to make a couple, so I chose to use the Champagne glasses, and decided to go with a twisted theme. I added the lock and chain as well as the scissors to perhaps indicate that there could be ”trouble in paradise”. The black bat and the spider’s web also add to the mystery between the two.

Believe in Magic? make a super cute necklace with Rue Romantique charm

doyoubelieveinmagic-phendrickson-iceresin
I had an old rusty metal tag that I have been wanting to use, so I decided to use the child’s photograph from the Rue Romantique book, and make her a Sorceress or a Queen. I used the spoon as a Scepter, and added some jewels, as well as a crown. Next, I decided on the quote “Do you Believe in Magic?” to continue with the magical theme.
