Retired - Guardian Owl Ring

PROJECT R7003
Designer: Rachel Zaimont
Skill Level: Advanced
Perched in a gemstone treetop, this Nunn Design owl keeps watch all night from within this cute resin ring.
Instructions
In addition to the materials listed above, you will also need a paint brush, a few toothpicks, a face mask and some disposable gloves to complete this project.
  1. Take one Nunn Design owl stamping and cut off the loop at the top with flush cutters. File away any rough edges with the Vintaj metal file.
  2. Next, watch our video on how to use Vintaj patinas. Use a dry paint brush to dab white patina onto the owl's head, neck and body, as shown in the photo. Blot off some of the patina with a paper towel.
  3. Rinse off your paint brush and allow it to dry.
  4. Use the brush to paint the inside of the ring bezel with black patina. Wait an hour for it to dry.
  5. Take a dab of Crafter's Pick glue on a toothpick and line the bottom edge of the owl stamping. Place the stamping into the ring bezel to the left of the center (see the photo for reference).
  6. Place some Crafter's Pick on the bottom of two gold star stampings and glue them into the bezel (see the photo for reference).
  7. Dab some Crafter's Pick inside the ring bezel along the bottom and left-hand side, around the owl's tail and wing. Then sprinkle a pinch of corundum chips over the area and press them gently into the glue so they stick. Wait a few hours for the glue to dry clear before moving to the next step.
  8. Watch our video on how to use Ice Resin. Put on your disposable gloves and face mask. Based on the instructions in the video, measure your resin and stir with a popsicle stick until all striations are gone. Then it is fully mixed, use the stick to drip the resin into the bezel a few drops at a time, until the resin forms a low dome over the top of the bezel. Remove any air bubbles with a heat source such as a small torch.
  9. Allow the resin to cure in a dust-free area for three days. Enjoy your ring!
