This resin rose is a great way for me to show you how I layer in colour using Jewelry Resin or Envirotex Lite. I use either of these two resins because this rose mold is very shallow and these resin were made for shallow pours.
The first step was to make a small batch of Jewelry Resin coloured orange. Notice that I poured it into the mold in such a way that there were still open areas. I let it cure overnight.
The next day I made another small batch of Jewelry Resin which I coloured yellow with Pearl-Ex.
I then filled my rose mold to the brim. I let this cure overnight.
I loved my rose yellow and orange, but I did notice two air pockets which bothered me. I could have sanded them away…but realized this was an opportunity for a third colour application.
I made a tiny batch of repair resin which I coloured dark pink.
Then I simply painted the pink resin into a few key locations, ultimately filling those air pockets.
My finished rose is just wonderful!
It is one of a kind!
wow . I didn't know you can colour resin with pearl ex pigments. this opens up so many more possibilities. I have to try this.
I love the finished piece and no-one will ever be the wiser about the air bubble flaws. 🙂
