Step 1: Supplies
Molds and resin
(I get mine from little-windows.com).
Charms, photos, glitter, stickers or whatever you would like to put in the pendant.
Cropper if needed.
Step 2: Create
I like to fill my mold with charms. I clip the loop off with a wire cutter. Try using glow in the dark glitter. You can throw just about anything in there.
If using photos, be sure to use modge podge first or it might bleed.
I like using the cropper on special paper for backgrounds
Step 3: Resin
Mix your resin slowly to avoid bubbles. You can get resin at Michael's, Menard's or any hobby store. I like using the resin from little-windows.com. Low bubbles, great finish.
Step 4: Set
Let it set for 12 hours. Be sure to check for bubbles in the first 10 minutes. Pop them with a pin or scoop them out.
Step 5: Finish
Once set, remove from mold. Trim edges if needed.
Glue bail on the back with E6000, let set and you're done.
