Instructions
 

Preparing the Pendants

  • Trace your bezel onto watercolor paper with a pencil. Trace a small triangle in the center (this will be your Christmas tree).
  • Use various shades of green to create the trees in each square.
  • Then go from lighter to darker blue to paint the space around the tree. Let dry completely.
  • Cut out the watercolor paintings to fit the inside of the bezels.
  • Seal the cut out into the bezels using the water-based sealer. Cover the surface of the painting with the sealer as well. Let dry.
  • Paint another coat of glue over the tree area and place seed beads on the tree.
  • If you have them, you can place a small metal star charm at the top of the tree, or gold colored beads. Let dry completely.

Pouring the Resin

  • Mix equal amounts of resin and hardener in a small mixing cup. Mix for 2 minutes then pour into a second small mixing cup. Stir for another minute.
  • Carefully pour the resin into the bezel wells.
  • Let the poured resin rest for about 15 minutes and then blow off any bubbles arising to the surface with a small kitchen torch.
  • Cover and let the resin cure 24 hours.
