Dragonfly duet altered pocket watch :D
Well, this turned in to quite a labour of love - in other words a chore!!! LOL :D
I treated myself to some resin a while ago and I was a little bit scared of it!!!
I made some little embellies to start with but it wasn't right and I started this project and couldn't get it to dry :(
I realised I wasn't getting the mix right!!
Luckily you can layer up resin and can't see where its layered so I finally got the mix right today to finish off this piece :D
I used my dichroic technique with croco to start with.
I coated my piece of lace with matte medium on both sides because resin soaks in to the fibres and it would become invisible with the resin - the same happens to paper!!
I stuck my embellies down with glossy accents then layered in the resin.
I finished it off by colouring the embellies with inka gold and adding a little bit of distress stickles on the resin to hide my pokeyisitdryyet finger prints :D
I'm so disappointed that you can't see the depth in the photo :( and blogger won't let me add anymore for some reason :(
yeyyyy I can now :D
