Description

DIY Resin & Alcohol Ink Abstract Necklaces in Bulk

Create some very easy and beautiful original Art pendants for your necklaces. 

I've broken the class content into easy, manageable steps even for beginners. 

We will learn several important concepts like how to use alcohol inks in resin to create dazzling designs, learn when your resin is cured, how to cut out a variety of shapes, and attach bails to create one of a kind unique art pieces.

If you have other brands of resin to use that's okay, just make sure to follow the directions of your brand. Art resin is my favorite since it has a long cure time and it gives plenty of time to create before it dries. If you wait for 72 hours it will be fully cured in most cases. 

This course will give you the skills and materials to develop your unique jewelry pieces. I'll take you through the entire video of my steps and process and I'll give you all my supplier information.

Looking for the supplies, I've made it easy with listing them all in the Bonus Lecture.

This is and Beginner to Intermediate course for those of you that want to have fun, be creative, and get the basics on how to create these artsy pendants. Learn all my quick easy tricks and steps to create your own jewelry to wear or gift!

Another great bonus item for  easy fixes is to use a little jump ring with necklaces that don't fit -  they have them in the is little Jewelry Kit. I added a youtube video link attached in the resources. Depending on the size you need they also have just the jump rings in a number of sizes. I do like the kit though it has a lot of the goodies in there plus a little ring that helps open and close the jump rings.

We will not go over how to mix your resin in this course. If you are brand new to resin you may like to first take my first Resin Jewelry course which does cover the mixing. (I have added the information to the Bonus Lecture). If you have other brands of resin to use that's okay, just make sure to follow the directions of your brand. Art resin is my favorite since it has a long cure time and it gives plenty of time to create before it dries. You will need to cut the resin before it is fully cured (Still soft). Once cut within 72 hours it will be fully cured in most cases. Make sure your area is at least 70 Degrees warm to help the resin cure properly.

In this lecture students will pour their mixed clear resin into a mold and learn to add alcohol inks to tint.


Step 1 - Let's begin with pouring our resin

In the Lecture we will complete the same steps as above, but this time without a silicone mold.

Step 2 - If you do not have a Silicone Mold here's what you can use.
02:57

Students will learn to begin cutting their resin and understand how soft and when to begin cutting into large shapes to begin with. We will use some basic and simple tools, but be careful. 

Step 3 - Let's Begin Cutting your Soft Resin.

Here students will see how to cut into smaller shapes and fun designs with their resin.  We will also cover how to use a small hole puncher for thinner resin.
