SKU VID-0542
Designer: Becky Nunn
This 4 part video series shows from start to finish how to create a mold to fit a bezel using 2-part mold putty, how to cast 2-part epoxy clay in a bezel from the mold, how to create a pigment color sampler showing you the different varying degrees of color intensity you can achieve with pigments, and then finally how to apply color to your cured clay. This video series was created by Becky Nunn of Nunn Design.

This is Becky Nunn of Nunn Design. I'm the guest designer for This is the fourth part of a four-part series This video is on Applying Color to Cured Crystal Clay. We made the mold for this bee. We've learned how to place it into the pendant we learn how to mix colorants and create a sampler and now we're gonna apply it onto our pendants so our resin is pre mixed and I created a color that I desired and now I can go about either pouring it on or just using a toothpick to apply it onto the crystal clay. So if I wanted it just to be on the body of the bee I can go about doing it that way or if I wanted to go ahead and put it over all of the surface I'd use my toothpick to move it around and press it into the different crevices if I get some on the side I can go back with my wet wipe and wash that off and so it'll probably be darker on the recessed areas than it is on the bee itself but my bee will still be colorized too because resin will seep over and move off and that is how you would apply the resin onto the pendant. As the piece started to cure up a little bit and as your resin started to get a little thicker you could go back and apply a couple more dots onto the body and make this a little stronger if you wanted to but I kinda like how that look is just looks like a glaze that's been fired and you might wanna go around the edges a little bit more carefully with your toothpick sometimes if you're piece is farther recessed down its easier to get that along on those edges. This piece is pretty high with inside the mold and had a very small lip. This is Becky Nunn for and this is the finish of this series on how you can colorize and apply color to cured crystal clay.
