I’ve always wanted to use resin in a project but have always felt somewhat intimidated.
Thanks to an opportunity with Environmental Technology Inc., the makers of
jewelry resin and much more, I finally got my chance.
And… after watching this video. I felt confident to start.
I couldn’t believe how easy it was and how happy I was with the results.
The hardest part was deciding what to make and what to fill.
For my Projects:
- I started with some over-sized bottle caps from Maya Road which I spray painted black.
- I used a circle punch to make a background from scrapbook paper.
- I used dimensional stickers, metal pieces, regular stickers and glued everything in place using white craft glue.
- I measured and mixed the resin according to the instructions and filled the bottle caps.
- Then it was time to wait for the resin to cure.
The original plan was to add a hanger on the back, and use them as a decoration.
But… I had a better idea and decided to add a magnet to the back instead.
I really, really like them.
Now that I’ve seen how easy it is, I’ve got a few more things in the works.

There probably isn’t anything crafty that you can’t do. The caps are great example of your creativity . Really cute.
Thanks Lyla, I appreciate your vote of confidence. It helps get me out of my box when they send me things I’ve never played with before. I love a challenge.
I’ve never worked with resin before, but I enjoy 3d works like sculpture. I may have to give it a try!
It really is easy and addicting and surprisingly not expensive. Give it a try.

Sue these are great and I love the works in progress…thanks for being part of the hop!!
thanks Ann. I loved working with the resin and can’t wait to play more and use the jewelry clay as well.
So cute Sue! I know the feeling with working with the resin. I think it’s easier to work on larger pieces. but it was fun and want to try more!
I always love your cute and concise designs! You pack a lot of power in small pieces!
