Retired - Pink Ribbon Magnet Set

PROJECT C1018
Designer: Megan Milliken
Skill Level: Intermediate
Show your support for breast cancer awareness with these cute ribbon shaped magnets in pink tones.
Instructions
  1. Shake your mold release spray and then spray into both of the ribbon cavities. With very clean fingers or a non-fibrous cloth, work the mold spray into the mold and then let dry. Wash your hands.
  2. Mix 1 oz of Ice Resin. Once part A and part B are mixed, use your mixing stick to carefully put just a thin layer of resin into one of the ribbon cavities. Line the bottom of this cavity with 11/0 Pretty Princess Pink Czech seed beads. Just put enough beads in to cover the bottom of the mold cavity. Add enough resin to fill the cavity a bit more than half way.
  3. Squeeze 1 small drop of red pigment and 2-3 drops of white into your resin. Using your mixing stick, mix the colors together until all striations are gone. Adjust the color as you like, just remember one drop at a time and because of the small amount of resin being used, do not use more than 3 or 4 drops total of all the dye.
  4. Carefully use your mixing stick to transfer the pink resin to the bottom of the second ribbon cavity. Again, fill it a bit more than half way.
  5. Allow your resin to set for 24 hours.
  6. On the following day, or several days later if you prefer, mix another 1 oz of Ice Resin. Once part A and part B are mixed, squeeze 1 small drop of red pigment and 1-2 drops of white into your resin. Using your mixing stick, mix until all the striations are gone. If you want a darker color, add another drop of red. Pour your dark pink resin directly on top of your light pink in the mold. Fill until just slightly below the top of the mold, do not let it spill over. Let cure for a full 3 days.
  7. After at least 3 days, pop the ribbons out of the mold.
  8. Place a dab of E6000 glue on one side of one of your round magnets. Center the magnet to the back of your resin ribbon. Place the magnet with glue side down to the back of the ribbon. Press into place. Let dry. Repeat with your other magnet - keep the magnets away from each other as you do this, otherwise their magnetic force will draw them to each other and could make working difficult.
  9. Allow the glue to dry thoroughly before use.
