Hi This is Becky Nunn, a guest designer for Beadaholique.com and in this episode I'm gonna be talking about how to make a ring using resin that we have colorized with opaque pigments into a ring shank. What you'll need for this video you need to have a ring shank On this particular ring we're gonna be adding a couple little embellishments onto the top. You'll also need two mixing cups, you need to have watched How to Add Opaque Pigments to 2-Part Resin. You also need E6000 glue, a couple of stir sticks that I just cut in half and a toothpick for creating a flat surface that is completely level I used my mixing cup and my two little stir sticks to create a flat place where my ring shank could sit. With my resin that I've already put opaque pigment in I just go ahead and drizzle that into my bezel depending on how long you let your resin sit it starts getting thicker and thicker. My resin has been sitting a little bit but you can still see that it's good for filling up my ring shank since I'll be doing a couple of pieces onto the top of this I want it to be nice and flat and level so I'm making sure that I don't over pour my piece. As it dries you'll want to be continuing to come back and take a look at it to make sure that you don't have any air bubbles but even those air bubbles that you saw form, they just rise to the surface and they pop. If they aren't popping you'll want to use your or your toothpick to get them out. Once you've poured your resin in, you're going to want to put a little top over your ring to prevent any kind of dust from getting into the piece. After 24 hours your ring should be set and it'll be hard and dry to the touch I put a little bit of the E6000 glue onto my sheet and using a toothpick, I'm just applying a small amount onto the back of my embellishment. Depending on how stable your finger is you might want to use a pair of tweezers. I'm just gonna go for it see how we do. I'm going to apply my crown onto the surface of ring and now I'm gonna apply the star. I like doing it this way because I can control exactly how much glue I'm putting in there so I don't have a lot of access squeezing out of the sides and if I do I can pick it up my toothpick. How cool is that. So once my E6000 is glued on I'll have a great ring to wear.
