I’ve had a streak of requests over the past couple of weeks to offer another art retreat here in my hometown of Port Townsend, Washington. Although I don’t have a class scheduled this year, I did enjoy looking back on the pieces created from our last gathering in 2019. It is fun to see how each bracelet came out. All the same techniques and findings, yet such different finished results!

After filling a series of bezels and applying some gold pure metal powder, I then let it cure. On a couple of the cured pieces – I rubber stamped the surface of the pure metal powders to provide that visual interest I was after. On the others – I took a pair of scissors and started to scratch the surface of the resin to create the lines. I placed the sharp point of the scissors into the resin and dug into the resin to create the dots.

A friend had told me about a pure metal powder that was being used by polymer clay artists, so I had ordered some to try out with Crystal Clay, a 2-part epoxy air dry clay. I’m not exactly sure what I was doing, but I decided to use the pure metal powder with resin, like I would with PearlEx Powder.
IMPORTANT: Seal the Image! Step 4: It is important to create a strong barrier between the image and the Nunn Design Resin. If you don’t seal the image, the moisture can run the ink in the image and absorb into the paper, causing the image to darken.
