Here’s a handy trick for checking your cured resin: Keep the pot you mixed the resin in. When the residual resin is cured in the pot, it will be secured on your piece.
You could smother the piece with bling or stay fairly restrained. It’s up to you. Hot-fi x crystals won’t stick to the painted metal properly, though, so you do need to use the proper glue.
Most inks will bleed if you just pour resin or similar products on them, creating a murky image or one that has transparent patches. To avoid this, I seal the pictures either with sticky tape on both sides or with a gloss gel medium. When you trim the images from the gel or sticky tape, make sure there is a tiny sealed border around them to avoid having the resin or Glossy Accents seep in around the edges.
Look for interesting striped grosgrain and taffeta ribbons in unusual colors. If they seem a little bright, you can always dim the colors a bit by dipping the ribbon in a cup of hot black tea. This will give them an aged effect.
