|I'm head over heels for this ring. *cue rimshot* Thank you folks! I'll be here all week.|
I believe I may have mentioned a time or two before that I'm a bit of a craft hoarder. Well...yeah. I've had a set of two resin faces for somewhere around twenty years. Yep. Twenty years. Think about that for a minute. I bought them, had no idea what I was going to do with them, and kept them. For. Twenty. Years! Even I realize that's insane. On the upside, I finally got around to using one of them to make my fabulous new faux hematite ring. Yay me!
- Ring base with pad
- Resin faces with flat backs
- Acrylic paint - black & silver
- Mod Podge
- Paint brush
I started out by giving the resin face a coat of black paint on both sides.
After that dried, I gave just the face side a thin coat of silver paint.
And after that dried I gave both sides a coat of Mod Podge to seal it.
And after that dried, I glued it on to the ring base using E6000. I used a bit of bubble wrap to stabilize the ring while it dried.
|Add ring base.|
And then after that dried it was finished!
This was so easy and I love how the silver gives the black a very subtle metallic sheen. It does look a lot like black hematite in person. Now, what am I going to do with that other resin face?
