Default Jewelry with MFT- 9/7/09 *UV RESIN*

Happy Labor Day MFT Junkies!! It's once again time for Jewelry with MFT!

Today's project is something new that I tried out and is really quite simple if you have the products to use. This is not something everyone will have on hand, but if you are really getting into jewelry and being able to use your stamps along with it, this is the hottest thing right now! While at CHA in Orlando, I really wanted to get my hands on some Resin. Two part Resin is a lot to be bothered with so the new UV curing Resin seemed right up my ally!! LOL! To do this, it required a UV lamp and of course some UV Resin. Now, if you don't have the lamp but have the resin, good ol' sunshine outside will also do the trick. It may take a little longer, but it works! There are so many uses to make fun jewelry or fun embellishments for cards using components and resin. You can put pictures, other embellishments, or anything your mind comes up with inside blank components to make for something you will enjoy for a very long time!

For this project, I used a flat metal rectangular jewelry component by Nunn Designs and stamped the flower from "Farm Friends" onto the metal with Versamark and put some black ep onto it. Heat it and let cool. Once cooled, I painted the flower using some acrylic paint and let that dry. It dries fast so there is no need to wait a long time. I put some UV Resin on the top of the whole component and placed that under the UV lamp. Total curing process is about 20 min but it can vary depending on how big the coverage of the item you are curing. Once it has cured, I glued on some rhinestones to the corners and added leather to make the necklace for something simple and fun to wear! I hope you enjoyed this project as much as I enjoyed making it! Thanks so much for taking a peek and you can always find more information and projects on my blog!

It looks like she used the one from Judikins...here is a link I found, but I'm sure there are many places to pick one up!
