Picture Bracelet

Instructions:

Step 1: Select five nature images and cut out.

Step 2: With a sheet of wax paper covering your work surface, use the paintbrush to apply three coats of Mod Podge to the front of each image, allowing 15 to 20 minutes' drying time after each coat. Repeat for the back of each image. (If needed, hold each image in place with a straight pin.)

Step 3: With the paintbrush, apply Mod Podge inside one of the bracelet blank's bezels; then press an image, right side facing up, into the bezel. (Use the paintbrush handle to help position and smooth out the image.) Brush the top of the image with two coats of Mod Podge, allowing 15 to 20 minutes' drying time after each coat. Repeat for the remaining images and bezels.

Step 4: Prepare the resin in a disposable plastic mixing cup, according to the package instructions. Let the resin sit for five minutes to allow any bubbles to dissipate. Then use a craft stick to drizzle resin into each bezel until the resin domes, but does not overflow the bezel. Let the resin cure for at least six hours.
