pewter bezels

Here are some of our pewter bezels filled with little paintings and covered with Lisa Pavelka's Magic Glos UV Resin. I really like the fact its only one part, so there's no stressful mixing (it sets up with a UV light, or the sun). The only downside is bubble removal - sometimes some pop up under the light, then its impossible to remove them since this stuff sets up fast once its under the light. So, its essential to seal the paper down completely (no dots of glue to tack the paper! bubbles form under there). Anyway, these bezels (and empty ones) will be available this weekend in Jacksonville, FL at The Bead Mercantile Show held at the Ramada Inn Mandarin saturday 10-5 and sunday 10-4. Stop by and wear your green girl creations to receive a free bead!

Oh man. I am a-squeeing over here for those bezels. Your artwork is perfect! Reminds me that I think I picked one up some time ago at B&B. As for the resin, I like Gel du Soleil for the same reason as it is fast and one part. I usually pop the bubbles by waving a candle lighter over the top before the UV lamp. They rise to the surface and pop! Enjoy the day, Miss Cynthia!

Was wondering what you seal the paper down with. Would you mind sharing?
