I was asked to make resin opals again and  I took a little bit of a different approach this time.

FX Poxy:  http://amzn.to/2AF3Pkk ~ According to the manufacturer, this one is heat resistant to 500 degrees F.

Here is the video tutorial:

1.  Mix your resin, according to the package directions.

2.  I separated the resin into four smaller cups and mixed in a small amount of confetti.  Put a small amount of mixture in the mold cavity.

3.  I added a small amount of pigment powder to the remaining resin in the cup.  Add whatever color you want to make them and add it to the cavity.

4.  Repeat with other colors of your choosing.  Allow to cure for a minimum of 12 hours.

Once cured, you can take them out of the mold and add a bezel.

That’s it!  Thanks for stopping by.  Remember:  Life’s too short not to shimmer, so grab your glue gun and your glitter!™  Stay safe!
