Instructions:

  1. Place the text stamp onto an acrylic handle. Dampen a cosmetic sponge and remove as much water as possible. Pour a puddle of Traditional Burnt Umber out on the palette paper. Pounce the sponge into the paint and then on a clean area of the palette. When you look at the bottom of the sponge it should be covered by paint but you should still be able to see the texture of the sponge. Pounce the sponge onto the stamp and stamp on the light brown card stock. Using the same sponge, reload with the Traditional Burnt Umber and stamp the remaining images onto the off white card stock.
  2. Cut the stamped text to fit into the bezel. If you have the die, you can run it through your machine. Seal the paper with all purpose glue, allow to dry, and repeat step. Mix Ice Resin according to manufacturer’s instruction and pour small amount into the bezel. It should cover the entire bottom, but only half the depth. Allow to harden.
  3. Using a bubble palette, place about a dime size drop of Traditional Raw into an individual bubble. Mix one part paint with approximately three parts water mixed with Easy Float. Completely mix the paint until it becomes transparent. Using #8 shader wash over the remaining images. Cut out when dry. Seal in the same manner as the background. Glue the balloons,and small watch gears into place in the bezel and the man onto a cog. Mix Ice Resin and pour to fill bezel. Pour a small amount over the man on the cog. Allow to set for two hours. Place three rhinestones onto the upper right hand corner of the bezel. They will stick to the resin. Allow to harden over night.Glue man on cog into lower left hand corner. Add charms, cogs, and chain of choice using jump rings.
