Designer Tips

  • Use scissors or an oval craft punch to cut images to fit bezel cups.
  • Seal both sides of image to prevent possible discoloration of the image.
  • Once dry, glue image to bezel cup to prevent image from floating.
  • Read and follow manufacturer's instructions for preparing resin.
  • Slowly pour resin into bezels. Remove any bubbles by waving a lit match, or blowing gently into a straw over the piece.
  • SuperClear resin domes nicely in bezel cups.
  • Use a box lid to cover the pieces to prevent dust from landing on the resin surface while the cure.
  • 2" head pins are long enough to create messy wrapped loop dangles.
