Tip 1Cut the image slightly smaller than the raised surface to allow the resin to fully cover the edge of the image.
Tip 2After the image is on the pendant, you can apply a thin layer of white glue or decoupage to seal the image before adding resin.

Step 1

Cut out your desired image from the collage sheet using scissors or a coordinating paper punch. Trim the image slightly smaller than the raised surface.

Step 2

Completely cover the raised surface with a thin layer of glue. White glue, Gem Tac, or Hypo Cement will work well.

Step 3

Lay the image evenly on the raised surface.

Step 4

Working from the center out, use a Q-tip to press out any air bubbles that may be trapped under the collage image.

Step 5

Let the glue dry completely. To finish you can now add ICE Resin, Diamond Glaze, or Amazing Glaze to your pendant.
