    Step 2: Add a few drops of Black Obsidian paint into the clear ICE Resin and mix until well incorporated. Let it rest until the bubbles dissolve, and then pour it into the bezel about a third of the way. You will have extra resin leftover so you may want to have several bezels ready to make more necklaces.

    Step 4: Use tweezers to gently place the papers color side up. You can do this while the resin is still wet. Set aside to cure.

    Step 5: Mix another 1 ounce batch of clear ICE Resin according to the instructions. Pour enough clear Resin into the bezel until you get a doming effect. Set aside to cure. Use extra Resin in the other bezels you started.
