Handmade Papercraft. Paper and Resin Pendant. First attempt.
Things I used: Homemade modge podge (water + elmers glue), ripped up pieces of newspaper, cardstock, acrylic paints, acrylic varnish, epoxy resin, sparkles.
Now that I’ve tried this out once, I have many more ideas for the future. Also, in retrospect I won’t make such a big hole to attach a necklace.
I added sparkles in the resin because I thought it would be pretty however, it didn’t turn out like I had hoped.
My favorite part about this kind of craft is the words and choosing them to go with each design.
I used a cheap resin for my first time and had a ton of air bubbles too. Stirring slower has been said to help avoid so many air pockets.
If you have any tips on using resin please don’t be shy, I could definitely use them.
