| Step 1 |
Mix a 1/2 fl. oz. batch of resin. For more detailed instructions see Using ICE Resin with Bezel Pendants Technique. 1/2 fl. oz. will be enough for about three 67mm clear glass ball ornaments.
| Step 2 |
Pick out a clear glass ornament. We are using a glass ornament that is 67mm.
| Step 3 |
Carefully remove the top to the glass ornament and set aside.
| Step 4 |
Slowly pour 1/3 of the resin into the glass ornament.
| Step 5 |
Slowly begin swirling the resin around the inside of the glass ornament.
| Step 6 |
Continue swirling the resin around the inside of the glass ornament until it is completely coated with the resin.
| Step 7 |
Set the glass ornament upside down in a clean measuring cup and let set for a minimum of 45 minutes. This will allow time for the resin to cure enough so it will no longer drip down the sides of the glass ornament.
| Step 8 |
Using a stir stick add 6 to 7 scoops of glitter into the top opening of the glass ball. Add more glitter as desired.
| Step 9 |
Tape the top opening of the glass ornament. This will prevent any glitter from spilling out.
| Step 10 |
Hold your thumb over the taped opening and begin to shake the glitter inside the glass ornament.
| Step 11 |
Continue shaking until the glitter has completely covered the inside of the glass ornament. if it isnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t completely coated, add more glitter. Repeat as needed.
| Step 12 |
Once the glass ornament has reached your desired look remove the tape from the top opening.
| Step 13 |
Tap any extra glitter from the glass ornament back into the jar of glitter.
| Step 14 |
Place the glass ornament upside down in a clean measuring cup and let fully cure for a minimum of 3 days.
| Note: |
Check your glass ornament after it has soft cured for 3 hours. If there are drops of resin around the opening carefully wipe away using a paper towel.
| Step 15 |
After the glitter ornament has fully cured for 3 days, carefully put the top back in place.
| Step 16 |
Congratulations! You have now embellished an ornament with ICE Resin and glitter.
