16. Colorized Resin Gems with a Smooth Finish

17. Colorized Sculpted Resin using a Silicone Mold

We don’t have a tutorial yet for this technique, but the steps are very similar to the technique featured in 16. Marbleized Resin with Transfer Sheets Tutorial. To create the sculpted resin effect that you see in the sample, press the resin during the “soft cure” phase into a silicone mold and let the resin fully cure. The end results is a sculpted resin effect.

18. Colorized Resin Gems with a Dimensional Finish

This technique also has a tutorial that is coming. The steps are exactly like technique 16 above, but an additional step happens once the resin is within the bezel. To create this dimensional rough-cut look, simply cut the resin with a pair of scissors! Seriously, it is that easy and that cool looking!
