Dreaming of sailing away

Pin It!
Hello Friends! Heather here with my third post for Globecraft and Piccolo. This month we were challenged to create charms using the new UV Resin and Enamel Gels. This was my first time using these products, and I had TOO MUCH FUN!

Step 1:
 Gather your supplies.

Step 2: I applied Glastique to my square charm and placed the scrap piece of book paper on it. Cut away the excess, then inked the edges with Ranger's Vintage Photo distress ink.

Step 3: I applied the Piccolo Embossing Adhesive to the edges of the piece, then applied the Gilded Rose embossing powder.

Step 4: I used my Ranger Heat it tool to heat up the Gilded Rose embossing powder! I love the vintage look of this embossing powder!

Step 5: I distressed the edges of my image and then inked them with Ranger's Vintage Photo Distress inks. I used the Glastique to adhere it to the bezel. Make sure you have this secure, so no air bubbles pop out when you do the next step :0)

Step 6: I applied the Instant UV Resin, then set it in my Teresa Collins Stamp maker UV light to cure for 3 minutes. This stuff is FABULOUS! Go ahead and treat yourself to the large deserve it! Honestly if you are anything like me...once you make one, you will want to make a million more :0).

Step 7: Next I cut out the rest of my images, inked them with Vintage photo distress ink, then used the Glastique to adhere them to my first layer of resin. I also applied some dots with the Yellow Ocher 3D Enamel Gel. Now you let your piece air dry. The enamels you do not heat set.

Step 8: After my Enamel Gel was dry, I added another layer of the instant UV Resin. Set in the UV light to cure for 3 minutes. I used the Glastique again to adhere my vintage button. I attached the charm to my interchangeable Vintage Brass Bail (these are gorgeous).

Step 9: I attached the bail to my pink pearl silk cord necklace and wore my new piece that day. I had three friends see me...and they all of course want one :0). Cool beans!

I hope you enjoyed my tutorial, and that you decide to treat yourself to a few enamel gels, charms, embossing powders, necklaces and the new Instant UV Resin! I am telling you....YOU WILL HAVE FUN!
