    Step 2: Pour half the ICE Resin® in a second mixing cup. Add several drops of Hacienda Tint to one cup until desired hue is reached. Stir and allow bubbles to rise and settle. Add Beryl Tint to the other cup of ICE Resin®. Pour about 2 Tablespoons of sand into each cup and mix thoroughly. Allow time to set and air bubbles to rise.

    Step 6: Make a small ball of Quick Cure Clay and press onto the top of the Ellie pendant. Repeat at the bottom. Press a jump ring into the top and another into the bottom. Use fingers to seal the place where the jump ring cut through the clay. Repeat with second piece but make a long rope and wrap it around the edges of the resin ellie pendant. Add jump rings to the second pendant

    ICE Resin Elie Pendant Step 8

    Step 8: Dip each ball into ICE Resin Iced Enamels or Ranger Mixed Media Powders. Try to cover as much as possible with the enamels. Cure with the Heat Tool on the Studio Sheet following the directions on the clay package. Clay will begin to smoke as it cures. The enamels will also become very bubbly as they melt and the clay reaches the desired temperature. If all the clay is not covered with enamels, use an ICE Resin brush to brush the molten enamels into the bare areas on the clay. Allow time to cool completely.

    Step 9: Add jump rings, silk, chains, and any natural stone slabs to finish the necklaces.

    Tips and Tricks:

    • Using commercial and handmade molds makes your creativity unlimited. You can find many molds on Etsy or other websites. You can also make your own.

    • It is incredibly difficult for me to wait for the resin to set so I do most of mixing before bedtime so the cure time is overnight and while I am at work the next day. Popping resin out of molds and handling too early can result in fingerprints on your pieces.

    • I love how the QuickCure Clay can be colored with embossing powders and enamels. When used, the heating process both hardens the clay and colors it.

    • I think the Quick Cure Clay is extremely versatile. It can be used to make and mold pieces, of course, but I really like that it is an easy alternative to epoxy clay. It cures very hard and there is only waiting for the piece to cool once it is heated.
