Resin Time is Anytime; ETI Resin Project

A little while ago I shared a project I worked on for a CHA installation created by Carmi Cimicata for ETI Resin.
Over 80 bezels were created for the Resin Time is Anytime project.

I was recently given the opportunity by the amazing Carmi Cimicata

to participate in a project for the CHA2014 Mega Show.

Carmi sent out these beautiful watch bezels and asked us to make whatever we wanted with them. Because I had the best resin teacher in the world, I wanted to create something I would love, but also something that I hoped would make Carmi proud of the impact she had on my creativity!



Into my bezel I placed: one vintage postage stamp, 5 amber crystals, and black quilled paper.  All the paper was given 3 coats of DecoArt decoupage medium to properly seal and protect the paper from the unforgiving elements of the resin. The crystals are also chosen carefully because plastic embellishments can/may disintegrate once the resin is poured.
Once the resin (I used ETI  Envirotex Lite resin) was cured for 48 hours I added the little hand (Recollections? embellishment perhaps) with Beacon's 3-in-1 glue. This glue is wonderful because it dries quickly and clear for a strong blond.
I added the hand as my take on a 'clock hand'.

The patina was added with a combination of  StudioG chalk ink (Michaels), Clearsnap  green Smooch, and a little silver Rub n Buff.
What fun!

And here is Carmi's post with my submission. Please check out all the stunning submissions and explore Carmi's blog.
