Open Bezel Casting

What do you require:

  • PoxyArt Craft Resin
  • Clear Tape
  • Mixing cup & sticks
  • Pigments of choice
  • Lighter 
  • And your open bezel items

How did we do it:

  • Always work on a level surface.
  • Tape up the back of your Open Bezels. Make sure they are pressed down firmly on the tape. If there are any holes the resin will run out.
  • I added a shell to my one bezel, which I also pressed down firmly onto the tape. In the earrings I mixed Pearlex Powder in to the resin and added some Pinata Blanco Ink as well.
  • Mix your PoxyArt Craft resin as per instructions and add pour into your bezel. 
  • You can get creative with the colours or items you would like to add.
  • Pop any bubbles with moving over the resin with your lighter. Carefull not to burn the Resin.
  • At this point we put our resin in the pressure pot and left it under pressure over night. You do not need a pressure pot to create these items, but it eliminates all the bubbles.
  • Close your work with a bowl or a box to protect it from dust.
  • Remove the tape after 24 hours.
  • You can trim off any access resin with a scissor or use some sandpaper.
  • If you are unhappy with the finish that your tape has created, simply add another layer of clear resin over the top.
