Resin on paper allows you to use paper in your work by making it waterproof. I use it in my little wearable journals and I'm able to use any photos and other things that I like. It's a great idea for Mother's day if you fill it with photos of those cute little grandkids or other precious things. You could even write a little poem or story and resin it for permanence.
This journal is made with our Patterned Brass Sheet, Square Bronze Wire, Chain, Eyelets, Frame Bezel attached with Mini Nuts and Screws and a fringe made of our Fiber Bundle. Next week I'll show how to do my favorite fringe. Here are the steps to do the paper with ICE Resin.
Mix the resin according to the package instructions. I always use gloves for this because I hate stickiness. Use a small piece of kitchen sponge or disposable sponge brush. Lay out a heavy garbage bag on your surface and tape down to keep it smooth.
Spread resin on the back of your paper and then flip over.
Allow to dry for a few days--for some reason paper will stick together if stacked before that. Then tear into pices that fit your design. Any tissue or very old paper will turn translucent with resin and it's fun to layer them with your photos. Linda Larsen
