Technique 1: Colorized Resin on Flat Tags
This project is a great way to be introduced to colorizing resin! The Nunn Design 2-Part Resin is designed to dome. It will get right to the side edges of the Nunn Design Flat Tag, and there it will stop.
You might also be interested in watching one of our videos showing this process:
This technique isn’t limited to just flat tags. You can create this look on any flat surface. In this tutorial, I used the colorized resin on the Earring Post Bar Earrings. Make These Earring Post Bar Earrings with Colorized Resin – Tutorial!
And here is another tutorial showing how you can use the Metal Beads! Colorized Resin on Organic Metal Beads Tutorial + Video
Here is a tutorial where a wee bit of Glitter Roxs or Mica Flakes can be added to the curing colorized resin. Colorized Resin with Glitter Roxs Tutorial
Technique 2 : Transfer Sheets on Flat Tags
For the Nunn Design Transfer Sheets, we use a LazerTran product. We print on the film and when you drop the image into water, the paper backing separates from the film front. This makes for very fun and interesting graphics to be added to your Nunn Design Flat Tags. Apply a coat of Nunn Design Resin to create this fun looking charm or pendant to add to your finished jewelry.
Technique 3: Transfer Sheet on Colorized Resin Flat Tags
Once you have learned how to mix Nunn Design Resin and how to colorize it using numerous color formulas, you can easily graduate to adding colorized resin onto Flat Tags and then applying a transfer sheet image.
Technique 4 : Organics on Colorized Resin Flat Tags
See how all of these techniques build on each other? All the same steps, but in this one we threw in some organics!
Technique 5: Sculpted Crystal Clay with Colorized Resin
Although I don’t have any tutorials showing how to add Sculpted Crystal Clay onto Nunn Design Flat Tags, we do have a lot of tutorials how to do the rest. I think you guys can figure out how to put the clay on the tag, but if not, here is a video that might be of help!
Although this tutorial is really about creating “holiday ornaments”, it is ideal for learning the overall technique! Holiday Ornament Workshop Tutorial

Technique 6: Metal Stamping on Flat Tags
Metal Stamping on the Nunn Design Flat Tags is a little different than other metals. We are casting with lead-free pewter and plating with precious metals. Pewter is a much softer alloy, so it will be worth your time to get educated on the best stamping practices. How To Metal Stamp on Flat Tags
Technique 7: Organics on Flat Tags
You guys so have this one! It is one step easier than #4!
This tutorial will walk you through all you need! How to Use Organics with Nunn Design Resin on Flat Tags
Technique 8: Crystal Clay, Mica Flakes and Nunn Design Resin
This technique involves adding Crystal Clay, a two part epoxy clay that air dries in about 12 – 24 hours, to the top of a Nunn Design Flat Tag or Metal Bead, as in this sample. While the Crystal Clay is still curing, embed a couple Mica Flakes and pour on a drizzle of freshly mixed Nunn Design 2-Part Resin to create this great look!
Technique 9: Texturized Crystal Clay with PearlEx Powders
This technique can work on a Flat Tag, in a Nunn Design Bezel or within a Ribbon End. The process is all the same! Great texture with interesting colors!
That covers page 28 of the Nunn Design Master Catalogue and making it a wrap for this series of blog posts! I hope you will Click! Learn! Make! and get the most learning possible out of the Nunn Design Master Catalogue!
