So onto my project, it was actually really hard to photograph! I have created a see through resin Christmas tree ornament.




I masked off the edge of the Rockin Robin stamp with some masking tape and burnished it down. I then mixed the whole tube of ICE Resin to the manufacturers instructions and poured it onto the rubber stamp. Make sure your stamp is immaculately clean, if not it will be after this process but your resin cast will be dirty........



Once the cast had cured I carefully removed it from the stamp. I then painted the back of the cast, drilled holes in the top and added the ICE Resin numbers with glue. I strung it with the most gorgeous wide green sheer ribbon from ICE Resin.


Here it is against a Christmas tree in my garden I hung some lights on so you can see the effect you would get from it being hung on a tree.

Don't forget to leave a comment here and go to the ICE Resin blog to be in with a chance of winning some wonderful prize's




Thanks for visiting

What can I say... I am bowled over by the transparency and never knew ice resin could be poured over a stamp without sticking to it permanently. It makes for a beautiful Christmas ornament.

Laura Strack said...

Clare, Your Birdie ornament is so pretty. You always go that extra step to make sure we see every inch of beauty in your creations (The lights on the tree)! Question: If the stamp has residual ink from StaZon, will it too be left in the resin cast? Thanks for your beautiful ornie idea!!

Yes Laura, it will come off onto the resin, so do a test one first to clean it and grunge it up then do a clean one LOL
