I’ve always been fascinated with things that are encased in clear resin or glass. Having them frozen in space and being able to study them carefully from all angles is just so amazing.
In today’s video I show how to use UV resin to preserve tiny bits of flowers, leaves and grasses as molded cabochons.
You can then glue on a bail or drill holes to make these pieces into whatever jewelry you like. This would be the perfect way to preserve flowers from a bridal bouquet or any other occasion you’d like to remember.
Make sure to plan for test runs. As I show in the video, things don’t always turn out like you think they will.
Tools & Materials:
- tiny flowers, leaves & plants to preserve
- cabochon mold
- magic glos UV resin
- 1/16 inch drill bit
- glue on bails
- sunlight (free!) or UV light (not free, but useful 🙂 )
Enjoy the video and happy creating!
