Blizzard Ring

PROJECT R2025
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Advanced
Get caught up in a snowy blizzard with this wintry resin ring. Use Crystal Clay Mica Powder and Ice Resin to add a glittering snow storm over Swarovski Crystal Snowflake Rhinestones and Vintaj Patinas.
Instructions
You will also need a piece of thick scrap paper (a small stack of sticky notes work well) and a toothpick for this design.
  1. Make sure that your ring is has an even drying surface so that the resin does not spill over. You can cut a hole in a box to make a flat surface to hold the ring up. Just make sure it is level and secure.
  2. Set your ring upright.
  3. Please watch our video: How to Use Vintaj Patinas and Glazes. From what you learned in the video, mix a few drops of white and a few drops of blue on your scrap of paper to get your desired shade of light blue. Using a paint brush, paint the inside well and inner rim of the bezel ring.
  4. Spread a dab of glue on to the back of one snowflake rhinestone. Carefully place into the center of the bezel. I recommend using tweezers to help with this step. Repeat this step with the other six snowflakes, placing them around the center one to create one large snowflake. (See photo for reference). You may also choose your own design and placement. Allow to dry for at least four hours.
  5. Please watch our video: How to Use Ice Resin. From what you learned in this video mix a cup of resin.
  6. Add a very small dusting of the mica powder. You may add as much as you like, but add just a little bit at a time to get your desired look.
  7. Carefully drip the resin into the bezel of the ring. Drip more slowly as you near the top so that it doesn't spill over.
  8. Allow the resin to cure for 3 days for optimal results.
  9. All done!
When you mix the resin you will have extra left over. Prepare some other bezels or molds to use the excess resin.
