I recently did a demo for ICE Resin at the CHA Mega Show and it occurred to me that I had never introduced you all to ICE Resin. If you like the idea of creating your own jewelry components and you love the look of enamel on metal but you don’t want to go out and buy torches and all of the heavy duty equipment then I have a great product for you – ICED Enamels from the […]
We all know that I am an ImpressArt fan and love their metal stamps, hammers and other jewelry making supplies so I was excited to have an opportunity to review a new product from them called Bezel Effects. Here is what the ImpressArt website says about the Pebeo Fantasy Moon paints: Pebeo Fantasy Moon paints have a opalescent effect when dry. The solovent based paint can be used on any flat and horizontal surface. And here is what the […]
Last yearÂ I became acquainted with Ice Resin 2-part epoxy resin, and met the wonderful Jen Cushman manning the booth at CHA. At the time I was unfamiliar with her impressive art and writing credentials- I just thought she was one of nicest, most welcoming people I’d ever met. Little did I know that she was writing the an amazing book!Â Today I get to share howÂ “Explore, Create, Resinate” really can expand your resin-crafting horizons! This tidy volume is […]
Since this is blog-hop week for Ice Resin, I though I’d put up a video made by ArtBeads.com on how to use Ice Resin.

Take a look: Couple of facts about Ice Resin: never yellows jewelry grade 1-hour pot time, according to O&E (when it starts to heat up, it’s going bad) “drys” to touch after […]
Ok, only a few of you will actually get the Vanilla Ice reference in the title- but I couldn’t resist! Today I’m talking about Ice Resin, a 2-part epoxy resin that is jewelry grade. The beautiful people at Objects and Elements told me it will never yellow, and the best part is that it’s labeled non-toxic! I received a sample at CHA Winter 2010, and I really couldn’t wait to get it back home to try out. It’s one […]
As some of you know, I write for Craft Critique, and have been doing some CHA coverage for them. I got a chance to write a post about Ice Resin, a product I’m really excited to try out. It’s a non-toxic 2-part resin (most 2-part epoxy resins are HIGHLY toxic) and is touted as being non-yellowing. Fabulous artist and fellow Ohioan Susan Lenart Kazmer uses this resin in her work, and frankly, she knows her stuff! I have a sample […]
I LOVE CraftCritique.com– it’s such great site for news and reviews on all things crafty. (Ok, and I write for them, too, but really I’m not biased.)

Go check out their coverage- you’ll be glad you did!
