Here is my project for the hop.

I decided to go with a Christmas theme.  I used some of the jewelry molds to make embellishments for some paper mache ornaments.  I started by spray painting the ornaments.

I then got my molds ready.

I then mixed some of the Jewelry Resin and poured it int the molds I wanted to use.
I let it get firm then added a layer of gold leaf flakes.  I then added some Black Opaque dye to the resin and poured that over the leafing.

I love the finished product of resin.
I stamped the backgroud with the wonderful Ann Butler Design Stamps and her Crafter's Ink.  I added gold embossing powder and heated until melted.  I also over stamped and layered the image so it gave a rich look on the surface of the ornament.
And this is my finished ornament.  Of course you never know, there may be some glitter or bling added!
