Talisman Week 5 with JoMama – Nurture

Easter Greetings!

However you celebrate we at ICE Resin wish you incredible joy.

Spring is a time of renewal and the egg certainly symbolizes that potential for growth.

JoMama Jones ICE Resin Talisman

JoMama is our Taliman artist this week. Her word is “nuture”.

Take a moment and breathe that word.


No I can tell you that JoMama is a nurturing soul. The first photo I ever saw of her was with a chicken (I believe the richly hued feathered creature was her pet.) Jo is also a believer in upcycling.

Without further ado, her is a link so you can see JoMama’s complete mixed media necklace and everything she has to tell you about it.

Previous Talismans:

Hello, Good-by and a mixed media giraffe

Art Mechanique molding puttyThis little mixed media giraffe seems to be saying hello to the 2014 ICE Resin Creative Team — the  members will be announced December 13.

Sandy Marin made the body and legs of this so so fashionable critter  out of an upcycled wooden box, paint, a ruler, an tulle for the skirt.


The body is cast ICE Resin using Art Mechainque Molding Putty.

“Hello” or “Good-bye” we, Susan, Jen, Kristen and Carol want to give a round of applause, several really loud cheers, hugs all around, and warmest wishes to (in no particular order):

Make an ICE Resin Paper Christmas Tree

JoMama shares how to make a darling Christmas tree with ICE Resin paper triangles.

You will need beads, a star button, a wire, paper, ICE Resin and oil pastels.

Today, JoMama shares a cool technique for using an Art Mechanique staple bezel.

She says: I started with a staple bezel, cut paper, and folded over top staples to secure.
Next I resin coated the paper. While wet, I set the staple bezel into the resin, leaving the back staples open to make it stand up. Embellished with a rhinestone using the Crystyler, also into wet resin.
After cured, twist and fold wire as desired and embellish. I used a vintage chandelier crystal!
