No bracelet mandrel, no problem!
A hammer, a towel, a rolling pin and one of the Art Mechanique Silhouettes is all you will need to follow along as Clare Horner shapes the focal for her bracelet.

Since not everyone was able to attend the CHA Show to see the exciting demos that we presented at the booth, I thought that I’d share one of the projects the show attendees
experienced – incorporating rubber stamping techniques with ICE Resin® products!
Start with an Art Mechanique Silhouettes Heart Bezel. Using an InkBlusher applicator, apply StazOn Orange Zest over the entire heart and allow to dry completely or use a heat tool to speed the process. With a different InkBlusher, apply a thin coat of GlazOn layer protectant. Repeat this process with StazOn St.Valentine.
Using the “Charm Collection” set of rubber stamps from Stampendous, stamp the background image with StazOn Claret, and the butterfly and crown with StazOn Jet Black. Allow the StazOn to dry completely before adding a layer of GlazOn.
With a brush, apply ICED Enamels® Medium around the edges of the heart. Sprinkle ICED Enamels® Raspberry Relique onto the medium, sprinkle off the excess, and then heat set with a heat tool. Sprinkle ICED Enamels® Relique Glitz Silver glitter lightly over the heart before pouring the ICED Resin® onto the project.
