Using Transparencies in Resin

Using Transparencies in Resin

Resin Jewelry, 2nd Edition ©Shireen Nadir 2014

One of the new projects covered in my updated resin book is how to use printed elements in your resin, not only regular xerox prints, but prints on transparent sheets (such as film, or acetate). The advantage of transparent prints is that you can really play with colour, either by adding it to the original print, or by using dyes in the resin (another project that I also cover!).


I’ve even used my own instagram images with resin to create photo-jewellery…


…as well as clipart


…and my own photographs


This particular project is done on a bangle mold, so it also covers how to pour, sand and finish a bangle for a perfect result, as well as where to buy bangle molds and the sellers that I’ve gotten the best results from.


As of today there is only one week left to take advantage of either my upgrade option, for folks who own a book, or my pre-sale option, which gives you the e-book at a discounted price, read on!
