Directions

1.  I had found these bezels a while back, in the clearance section, and thought they would be perfect for this project.

2.  Because they do not have flat backs, I used bottle caps to keep them in place.

3.  I mixed my resin.  The resin I used is a fast curing resin and it cures white.  I had to work fast!

4.  I separated the resin into two small cups and added pigment powder to each.  Pigment powder can have a very strong color, but because the resin cures white, it makes them pastel.

6.  I dropped the one chick button into the pink resin and let it sit.

7.  The purple resin was curing quickly, so I had to squish the other chick into it and hold onto it.  It all cured within 15 minutes.

That’s it! Now we have two adorable chick charms!  Add a jump ring and a cord and you have a necklace. You can also turn it into a keychain.
