Ribbon or lace, vintage fabric or new? Are you going to try a new technique?
With the technique Ice Prince John Creighton Petersen showed us in an earlier video I created a bottle label with a domed effect.
I added a small modification to the technique to make it work with the lightweight pieces I want to resinate and I needed to make them stay in place during the process.

Did you know you can use a stamp on metal with Susan Lenart Kazmer’s cold enameling system?
Tatiana Allen will how you how.
Don’t forget that in order to make a permanent cold enameling fusion, you need a layer of ICE Resin on the top of the Relique Powder pattern you have added to the silhouette.
ICE Resin makes thin paper translucent, durable enough for jewelry yet you can still tear it! Just imagine the art journal possibilities. In this video you will see Jennifer Cabic show you how to add resin to paper and how to place eyelets in resined paper for any mixed media art project you feel inspired to create!

In this video you will see Jennifer Cabic show you how to add resin to paper and how to place eyelets in resined paper for any mixed media art project you feel inspired to create! Are you ready for your paper to “resinate”? We have Belle Dames, and two glossy paper packs. You can find them here. In addition to Silver, our German Glass Glitter comes in 5 more colors: Amethyst, Sky Blue, Chartreuse, Chocolate, and Salmon.
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.
Materials you will need:
Cotton yarn: any crochet flower pattern you like

Clare Horner uses acrylic paint from Indigo Blu (one of ICE Resin’s preferred partners) to cover the black patina on a Rou Romantique heart bezel to blue in this technique video.
What piece of jewelry or mixed media does this paint patina technique inspire you to create?
In this Iced Enamels technique video, John Creighton Petersen will show you his method for adding ICE Resin to the back and sides of a bezel.
This is what Amethyst and Torched Copper Reliques look like before they are melted and set with ICE Resin in our Cold Enameling process.
Do you embellish the back of your bezels?
Dive in as Tatiana Allen makes a blue ocean with some paint, a found object, ICE Resin, Shattered Micas: Silver and Chartreuse, and Shattered Fire Opal!
Want to see what she created with her ocean? Check out her August 13, 2015 project: Moving Forward.
In this project ICE Resin acts as glue as well as protecting and making your paper luminous.
Tip: Use Staz-On Ink to distress the edges of the paper to give your bottles additional dimension.
Tip: Smaller bottles are great additions to necklaces!keep looking »
