Filling Shotgun Shells with AMAZING Colors and Resin Layers

Filling Shotgun Shells with AMAZING Colors and Resin Layers

Hi everyone! Here with another fun tutorial as part of the Amazing Crafting Product Design Team– this time using Amazing Crafting Products casting resins. I recycle and use shotgun shells in some of my creative mixed media designs, which make perfect bezels for this project.

I thought I would add a bit of colored Amazing Casting Resin, followed with a doming layer of Amazing Clear Cast Resin, to sandwich a pretty little heart between the layers in a bezel. I love how the colored resin provides a beautiful background for my brass charms and rhinestone pieces. Take a look at a few of these samples, then watch the video below for complete instructions for making the shotgun shell heart ring.

Amazing Casting Resins and Colorant... a video tutorial.

Things you will need to make this project include: Amazing Clear Cast Resin (clear doming resin); Amazing Casting Resin (fast setting opaque resin); Alumilite Dye (your choice of colors); ring or pendant bezel; wooden jig or clothes pins (2); and a small charm to fit the bezel.

What items would you embed
and a recycled shotgun bezel?

I look forward to creating other precious gems using Amazing Crafting Products, and would love if you would let us know how this technique works for you too! Please share what you make with Amazing Crafting Products on our website in the User Gallery.
