This pendant has been on the work table for weeks.
I have worked on it on and off and it has been placed and then pulled out of the trash twice.
I do know you learn a lot more from my mistakes though.
So here is what happened.
It started when I found this cute shell necklace at Michaels Crafts Store. It cost $1.50.
I like to work in shells. There were two in the set. I gathered some pretty papers that I thought would showcase well in the circle shapes.
I sealed the papers three times with Ultra Seal
(you can use mod podge). I was so sure I got all the paper edges. When everything was dry, I poured in a very thin layer of Jewelry Resin.
I placed my shell on my raised surface so it would be balanced. However, 24 hours later I had resin stains. See those stained edges. That drives me crazy!!
So I covered the edges with more Ultra Seal and then did a ring of glitter glue around the edges to cover the stains. I poured more Jewelry Resin over all of this....and then can you believe it....ANOTHER STAIN. How I missed sealing this I do not know.
So I did a third glaze layer and added some charms to cover the stain.
In the end, I do have a pretty piece. You can always save a resin disaster if you are crafty!
