ICE Resin + a crochet piece = mixed media jewelry a technique with Baerbel Born

ICE Resin on crochet fabric

To make pretty jewellery with my crochet hook I have been looking for the perfect product to stiffen my yarn. ICE Resin can do the job!
I turned a crocheted flower into a piece of jewellery in no time just by adding ICE Resin.

Tip!! Like paper, the yarn will become slightly translucent if resinated. But as you can prepare your paper before resinating, you also can prepare yarn: Use some good old laundry starch in a high concentration on the yarn and let dry before you put your resin on. The yarn won’t soak the resin and won’t become translucent.

German Glass Glitter Buttons Capture the Sun

When rhinestones sink into ICE Resin they will loose some of their lustre. The German Glass Glitter keeps the sparkle and reflects every sun ray perfectly fine, even when covered with resin. Check Baerbel Born’s video for the amazing glitter effect.
