Copper and Leather and ICE Resin, oh my!

Here I go again, resin crazy, both Aiden and I are filling everything we can get our hands on!

I am hooked on combining copper and leather, I really like the look. Here, I've made some bezels out of copper tubing from the hardware store, soldered on a back and micro fastened them onto the leather. In the bezels, I've included handmade paper with skeleton leaves and some rhinestone chain that is oxidized and cut into individual pieces. And of course, some text out of a thesaurus distressed with ink.

I love working with Susan Lenart Kazmer's ICE Resin®; It mixes so clear with virtually no bubbles.  You'll have to check out her site for some of her newer products and bezels, very fun! I'll be sure to share some pieces soon with her new Iced Enamels®!

My Little Artist

Here is a picture from Art by the Falls this month with my 7 year old son's work. He has the crafting bug! Everyone in the family has been saving bottle caps for him to use and his most popular item at the show was his resin filled bottle caps. I really love the look when he squirts in different glitter glue and then lets it dry. When it dries, it shrivels up and makes very interesting patterns.

We signed up to do another show, Art on the Hill in Mantua on July 13th and we're pouring resin on a regular basis :o)
