Silvered Concrete Ring

PROJECT R7005
Designer: Rachel Zaimont
Skill Level: Intermediate
Versatile artist's concrete is dressed up by a touch of silver leafing pen in this mod, geometric ring.
Instructions
In addition to the materials listed above, you will also need a disposable mixing cup, measuring cups to measure tablespoons and teaspoons, tap water, and a popsicle stick to stir the concrete. You will also need some Scotch tape, and an emory board to sand the edges of the concrete piece.
  1. First, please watch our video on how to add color pigments to concrete for jewelry.
  2. Based on the instructions in the video, mix your tablespoon of concrete and add in a pinch of the charcoal colored pigment. Fill one triangular shape in your plastic mold, almost to the top. Let the concrete cure fully before moving on to the next step.
  3. Once the concrete is cured, pop the piece out of the mold. If there are any rough edges along the flat side, you can sand them down with an emory board.
  4. Take your silver leafing pen and color the bottom third of the smooth front of the pendant. You can use tape to block off the area you want to color in for a neat, straight line. Let the silver paint dry. Remove the tape.
  5. Place a dab of E6000 onto the pad of one ring finding. Place the concrete cabochon onto the pad. Let the ring dry upright overnight.
  6. Enjoy!
