Resin pendants and rings

Here are some pics of the process I use when I am pouring resin in pendants or rings. First the papers are glued inside the pendant and are coated 3 to 4 times so the paper will be sealed and not become transparent when the resin is poured over it. I then layer any additional pieces that are going to be part of the pendant. For rings I have made this paper plate holder. It allows the shank of the ring to go below the surface and keep the dish of the ring level while the resin is curing. This is the best technique I have found. I mix my resin according to the product directions, then let cure overnight. I can't wait to see how the turned out in the morning. Got questions or comments? Just let me know.
