Resin Meets Decopatch Pendant Tutorial

It’s about time I posted the other tutorial I promised a couple of weeks back; today I will be showing you how to make this…

1 Square Copper Patera Pendant (available here)
A sheet of Decopatch Paper- I used #358 (bought from The Decopatch Place)
Decopatch Glue and a brush
Silver colour letter beads (I bought mine from Dizzy Beads)
A Sixpence or other “lucky” coin
Resin Obsession Water Clear Resin (available here)
Mixing Cup
Stirring Stick
Disposable spoon (optional)

1) Tear the paper into tiny bits. Apply glue to the inside of a bezel and place a shred of paper in, coating it with more glue.

2) Keep adding pieces of paper and applying glue over the top. Use the straighter pieces to meet up with the edges of the bezel until it is all completely covered.
3) Whilst the glue is still wet, position your coin inside. Then insert the silver letter beads how you want them. Leave to dry.

4) Once completely dry, mix up some resin according to the instructions. I measure it in teaspoons, so two spoons A to one spoon of B. Fill the bezel until it domes and leave to set- that’s it!

I did have more photos but they were lost in the great memory card disaster so I hope this is OK!

    thanks for the terrific tutes, Kerry. Poor Penny! She needs a real baby: maybe she could borrow a nursing puppy from a friend’s litter or an abandoned pup. The vet could help with lacto- thingo to bring in her milk, even though she’s not been preggers. Imagine how happy she’d be with her very own real baby.

      I don’t think I’d trust Penny with a real puppy- she’s clumsy, lazy and occasionally irritable- she can stick with her shoes!
