The charm marked “B” is created by applying tape onto the backside of an open back bezel, embedding a couple beads and pouring in colorized Nunn Design 2-Part Resin. The same drill, there are multiple techniques that aren’t shown in one tutorial, so you will have to learn through a couple different posts.

  • In this tutorial, learn how to use an open back bezel by applying tape on the back and then learn how to mix Nunn Design 2-Part Resin. The items that I embedded in this charm are small crystal beads. You would apply the beads the same way I applied the flowers in this tutorial.

To create that sea foam green, I used a very small amount of yellow and blue of the Castin’ Crafts Opaque Pigments. How to Color Block with 2-Part Resin Tutorial + Video

I am crazy about this last technique, Sculpted Resin. It is by far one of the coolest things that I feel I have discovered. It solves so many issues of working with resin and allows the artist to really streamline the process.
