These take a little time b/c of the curing time of the resin but really have a nice effect once they are finished. I might add some ribbon to the hangers later! Just have to dig it out he he.
Gather your supplies! Make sure you use the proper protection while mixing the resin. I use EasyCast and it has a very low odor.
Mix your resin according to the intstructions. Most resins have a two part mixing process. The EasyCast mixing process takes about 3 mins! I use medicine dosage cups for measuring and mixing my resin. For this project I made 4 drams (1/2 oz) of resin and this coated the inside of four ornaments.
Pour into you clear glass ornament ball!! You can kinda eyeball how much you will need for each ornament. The resin takes a while to set up so what I did was coat one ball, invert it on a cup then started on the next. The excess will drain out of the ball and you can recycle it on the next ornament!
Now let your ornament sit like this (inverted on a cup) for about 45 min. This allows the resin to do two things. First, the bubbles that occur during the mixing will pop on their own. Second, it wil allow the resin to "cure" some so that it isnt so runny.
Now after they have cured for a while, put about 1 teaspoon of super fine glitter in the ornament. Take a paper towel and place it over the opening of the ornament with your finger. Get a good grip and shake the crap out of it!!!! Make sure that all sides are coated then discard the extra glitter. Or recycle it back to the glitter bottle b/c waste not want not right?
Ta da! I let these ornaments cure for about 12 hours before putting the hanger back on them. I am going to embelish these with ribbons once I dig my ribbon box out he he. Also you could use rub-ons to add a little more pizaaz! Viola!! Enjoy!!
