How To Use Resin To Protect An Object In A Pendant?

by Debby

I have a unique carved pink arrowhead that I would like to protect in a open bezel and wish to use clear resin and harden it for permanent protection.

How do I do that?

Protecting An Object In Resin

I would suspect that your arrowhead is solid enough that it should not need sealing first. (like paper or flowers or something similar).

Just embed in your bezel and cover with resin!

To avoid any air bubbles I would seal the item first. A painted on thin coat of resin will work.

If the object is heavy, consider doing a two pour resin. The first pour of clear resin to about the 1/3rd point in the mold. Then about 12 hours later, add your arrowhead that was previously coated in resin and your second pour of resin. That way the item will not sink to the bottom and will look magnified by the first clear coat.

The resin coating on the item will help it from having air bubbles around it. Also you can quickly use a heat gun over the wet resin to get rid of the bubbles.
