New Technique: Resin Mold Pendants

Recently, I began making glass tile pendants, and have grown to love it.  I ordered more slides and am still waiting for them to arrive.  Over the weekend, I was playing with some clay, when I ran across this in my craft supplies:
Silicone ice cube molds.  The thought occurred to me that I could use them to make my own “glass” tiles for pendants with my graphic images.  I busted out the resin I use in my scrabble tile and bottle capjewelry.  Mixed it up and poured it into the ice cube tray.   
They turned out great.  A little cloudier than glass, but it gives the images a nice soft feel.  Some of them I poured to much resin, so they were very thick.  It was hard to tell how much I was pouring, and I wasn’t sure how thick to make them anyway.  Next time I will go for thin.  
I think the pendants turned out really cute!

    What an awesome idea!! Can you put dried flowers in those?? Thanks for linking! :)

  4. When I do my bottle cap earrings I use a syringe to measure out the resin. That method could work for this too.

  5. I think it might be a silicone brownie mold.
