Troubleshooting Faux French Enamel

The new Nunn Design Buy & Try Faux French Enamel lets you create great pieces using colorized resin.  To learn more, please visit our previous blog posts:


While I was working with the resin, I had some pits or dimples on the surface of the tags I created.  Not bubbles, but an uneven surface.

To create a smooth surface, you will need a very fine steel wool to smooth off the resin.  Make sure to wear gloves and gently sand the surface area.

The look in itself is cool once sanded, giving it a dull finish instead of a shiny one.  More like stone.

You can leave your tag that way or go ahead and add your transfer sheet to the piece.
