Hobnail Heart Pendant Tutorial

We now carry Art Mechanique Hobnail Pendants!

Directions to make the hobnail heart pendant:
1. Start with blank tray.
2. Cut or punch out paper for pendant.
3. Coat each side with crystal lacquer. Let dry.
4. Apply thin coat of ice resin to tray.
5. Add the paper heart. ...Press down to release any air bubbles.
6. We then added some word stickers. We wanted an antique look, so we brushed the edges with a black permanent marker.
7. Next, we added random items- embossing powder around the edges, faux brown pearl stickers, mica flakes, and a little glitter.
8. Fill tray half way with ice resin. Let dry. Then, add just a little more of the random items. This gives the pendant more depth between the decorations. Fill tray to top with ice resin. Let dry.
9. Add a necklace strand, and you are done! Enjoy your hobnail heart pendant necklace!
