You can generate your own wording on your computer or use words from the word collage sheet. Bathing Beauties Collage sheets are available where Nunn Design Pendants are sold. Doming pendants with EasyCast epoxy magnifies the image, brightens colors and ads depth that only a two-component epoxy can do. Preferred by professionals for its easy of use, fast & easy bubble release, water-clear clarity and high doming capabilities. EasyCast is a low odor, solvent free, non-shrinking formula available at leading craft and art stores!

Project Instructions: 
  1. Cut and fit paper pieces into pendant cavities.
  2. Apply white glue to back of paper pieces, then place into pendant’s. Allow glue to dry.
  3. Seal paper pieces with two coats of white glue. Allow glue to dry clear between coats.
  4. Mix two ounces of EasyCast epoxy according to manufacture’s instructions. Fill pendant cavity full to form a slight dome. Avoid overfilling. Let cure per EasyCast instructions.
  5. Attach to your chosen chain or cord.

Marie Browning Professional Tips:

  1. You will experience the best results when working in a dust-free room with a temperature of 75º to 80º F (24º to 27ºC). Your work surface should be clean, level and protected with wax paper.
     
  2. Use a stir stick to control the flow of EasyCast into your pendants. You can also use a plastic disposable pipette (used by soap and candle makers) or small squeeze bottles with a funnel shaped “Yorker” cap for easy filling. Over fill your pieces ever so slightly, so your pieces will cure with a nice domed top. If you overflow the pendant too much, simply let the epoxy cure, then cut or sand the excess from pendant.
     
  3. Furniture or automotive polish prolongs the life of cured epoxy surfaces and helps to decrease smudges, fingerprints and scratches. Apply a thin coat with a cloth and buff as required.
