Dew Drop Pendant

Hello, welcome to another blog post. Lately I have been playing with resin and decided to experiment with Dew Drops. I decided to make a pendant and it came out fantastic! I have a tutorial for you below, so follow along and have fun!

 

Supplies needed:
Masking tape

Open Back Bezel Pendant

White glitter
Step 1: Place open back bezel on the sticky side of the masking tape pushing down firmly, Arrange the Dew Drops.

 

Step  2: Mix the resin according to package directions and pour into bezel.

Step 3: Sprinkle with glitter.

 

Step 4: Add a couple drops of alcohol ink.
Step 5: Heat the resin so the bubbles will come to the surface and pop. Set aside to dry.

 

That’s it! Look at that beautiful pendant!

Magical Dragonfly Mask ~ with Dew Drops

Hello all,
I am excited to share the mask I made for auction in support of the Utah Arts Festival.  My goal was to create a mask that prominently featured Dew Drops.  This is the second year that I have participated in this event and each year I have created a Dragonfly themed mask.  Because I love Dragonfly’s of course!
I love how the Dew Drops add texture and dimension to the piece.  I wanted to give the effect of a bulbous eye on one side with the wings on the other side.  Be sure to scroll down to see the step by step process.

1) Cut paper pressed mask to desired shape.
2) Apply texture paste to tissue paper and adhere to mask.  Color with acrylic paint.

 

3) Adhere dew drops around eye of mask.

 

4) Create wings with fabric and wire; fix to mask with wire and adhesive.  Adorn wings with dew drops (into shapes of flowers) and cover base of wings (at the point that they meet the mask).  Embellish mask with paper flowers and dried baby’s breath.

 

There is something very gratifying about creating art for a good cause! I hope you have enjoyed this project.

Collage Necklace with Dew Drops

Hello, so glad you stopped by today! Kelly Parker on the blog with Robin’s Nest Dew Drops, I love these delicate glass drops that can be used on any surface and they come in all kinds of colors! I created a necklace with collage images from Gecko Galz and Robin’s Nest Dew Drops.

 

I started off by gluing down a script collage paper and then used distress oxides to soften the edges, then added the image. After everything was dry, I drilled the hole, added the jump rings and cord, then added the Dew Drops.

Here’s a close up of the necklace.

Collaged Lapel Pins

Hello! Kelly Parker on the blog today with another project for Robin’s Nest Dew Drops.  I love adding these little bits of color to all my projects. They come in all colors and can be glued on with most any kind of glue that dries clear.

To make these pins, I glued down some script collage paper, then an image. I then used distress ink along the edges to soften them and add some color. After everything was dry, I added the Dew Drops and then the pin back. These pins are quick and easy but make wonderful gifts!
