Make a Dew Drop embellished Pendant, encased in resin.

Hello all,

   

Take collage to a miniature level by encasing collage materials and dew drops in UV Clear Resin.  This technique creates a great effect of depth and texture to the finished piece.  Check out the step by step instructions shown below.

 

The Robins Nest Supplies:

Goldenberry Dew Drops

Kelly Green Dew Drops

Pool Dew Drops

Other Materials:

  • UV Clear Resin
  • UV Light
  • Paper scraps
  • Paper/fabric flowers
  • Lazer gem stars
  • Bead Landing Found Object.

Instructions:

1) Use scrap piece of mixed media paper for the background of the pendant.  Cut in a circle and adhere.

2) Lay down a few remnantx book print pieces over background and cover with another layer of resin.

 

3) Set the resin under a UV light per manufacturer’s instructions.



4) For the next layer add paper/fabric flowers and dew drops.

5) Cover with another layer of resin, adding a start prior to the resin being set.

 

6) Place under the UV light again (follow manufacturer’s instructions)

 

7) Now is it ready for a chain.

 

I really liked working with quick setting UV Resin for this project (rather then the standard air dry).  It made working with layer much easier.  I hope you enjoyed seeing another way to use dew drops, they are very fun and versatile.

Happy day!

How to Use Dew Drops to Make Jewelries

Hello Crafty Friends!
Fairuz Fabiha here from Craftivation. Today I’ll be sharing with you a fun way to use dewdrops for jewelry making!

Process-

1. At first I took a metal pendant base and attached it with a metal filigree.

2. Added a piece of white paper to create a contrast.

3. Added dewdrops and designed it to my likings.

4. Finally finished it off by adding the chain.

I decided to try the same thing with different colored dewdrops and all the results are fabulous!

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.

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!
