I love all things ocean. I imagine this is largely due to my daughter. Since she was a very small child, she has wanted to be a marine biologist and study sharks. She graduated with her degree and is soon embarking on an adventure to go get her masters in Australia. I think her love of the ocean has rubbed off on me for it shows up in my art quite often. When I bought this mermaid tail silicone mold, I had no idea how much I would fall in love with making little resin mermaid tails. ICE Resin tints and Lusters and Opals add just the right amount of color and shimmer.
Step 1: Mix ICE Resin® according to instructions, allow the indicated wait time.
Step 2: Add the Cobalt Opals to the ICE Resin and mix.
Step 3: Add several drops of ICE Resin® Lusters to the ICE Resin® and mix.
Step 4: Allow resin to cure recommended time. When cured, pop out of the molds and drill a hole in the top of each mermaid tail. Add wire and seed beads to make a wrapped bail at the top of each tail. Add earring wires.
Once cured, your feather can be used in a variety of ways: in a mixed media design, as a gift topper, in a vignette, as a bookmarker and more. I also love to stamp their feathers with inspiring words and put them in a vintage metal goblet in a cupboard.
