    Nunn Design, I have a question for you. Is there any way to use an open back bezel with the Gel du Soleil? I have been trying everything as a backing so the resin stays inside the bezel which that is working out perfectly, but the problem is when you put it under the black light whatever it is placed on burns and almost starts a fire.

      Yikes! Fire!
      I have explored a wee bit with uv resin and the open frames and so has my staff. What we have discovered so far, is that we could not get the uv resin to stay within the open frame once we cured it. We placed a piece of tape on the back, pour in the resin and the cured. When we went to remove the tape, the resin would pop out. So then we thought, maybe we need to have some sort of tooth to either the resin or the frame, so there isn’t smooth on smooth. I did the Glitter Roxs technique within the open frame and that totally worked. I haven’t yet tried to sand lightly the inside of the open frame to see if providing a tooth to the frame would work. I hope this helps. Fires isn’t good. I haven’t ever experienced anything like that.

    I will be experimenting with my purchased open bezel frames too with the Gel du soleil. I appreciate the initial feedback & comments on this. I plan to try with my very tiny hand picked cobalt sea glass from Puerto Rico. I will keep all posted!

    Hi, What type of packaging tape do you recommend? I just purchased several of your open back bezels to use for Christmas gifts and I’m nervous to use the wrong tape. Thank you!

      The type of packing tape that I have been using we purchase from It is the S-447. The most important thing is to try and get a packing tape that is translucent and doesn’t have markings. Often even with the Uline packing tape, some rolls will have glue marks (I’m not sure what else to call them). They look like little blobs every now and then on the tape. If you have those on your packing tape, try to work around that area of the tape. Those glue blobs patterns will show up in your resin.
