Grade X has the lowest resin content for good impact strength but less than the fabric grades. Grade XX has increased resin content. This decreases the impact strength, but increases the electrical strength and reduces moisture absorption. Grade XXX contains the highest resin content and therefore the best electrical properties of the paper grades.
It also has minimum cold flaw characteristics. These grades are composed of a continuous cotton woven fabric impregnated with phenolic resin binder. Grade C and grade CE contain a medium weave canvas and are known primarily for their mechanical properties.
I used my finger to blend the colors together for a watercolor effect. This type of paper is much too brittle and delicate for actual watercolors and the pigment in the Pitt Pens is much deeper than that of watercolors — it's a look that's only achievable with Pitt Pens! I wrapped the wire onto itself and then pounded it flat with a hammer. Next I held the wire frame to the paper and cut out the paper. I heat set the Iced Enamels with a heat gun.
While the number was still hot, I dipped it back into the Iced Enamels in Pewter and heat set it again. I repeated this process one more time.
This yields a really thick, even, smooth enameled finish to the Silhouette Blank. I added the letter to my bezel and coated it with ICE Resin to seal. After allowing the piece to cure overnight on a non-stick craft mat, it was time to make it into a pendant! I trimmed any scraggly pieces of ICE Resin from the edges of the pendant, making sure it was smooth for whoever wears this Katie is totally eyeing it!
I added a wire bale and wired strips of ribbon and chain to the pendant. And there she is — all finished and ready to wear by someone with a big personality to match this big statement pendant! If you're not into wearing a piece this large, she can always be turned into an ornament that can be hung. I bet she'd be pretty in a window where the sun can shine through the resin paper and catch the Shattered Inclusions in the light!
Watch this video showing how I made her from start to finish. Get your supplies on Amazon, all in one place! I love what you made!! The paper and the stamp and the wire bezel and the inclusions! I just love this Jennifer! What a very clever idea to create your own bezel with paper and wire!! The result is beautiful!! Super creative and inspiring, thanks so much for sharing!

Oh my gosh you made my day! My favorite Jennifer creation ever! I love everything about it-I have resin,wire,paper,stamps-I can do this. I have so many friends that something like this would be perfect for-and with this technique I can make it personal for each one. I would love to use the idea for holiday ornaments — it seems it would be light enough for a tree.
Jennifer — this is absolutely stunning! Video is coming tomorrow, showing all the steps so come on back and check it out! I love the idea of making your own bezel! Opens up the possibilities of what I want to use Ice Resin for! Tomorrow I will be sharing a video of the process — I would love to see what you create if you make one too!

Your pendant is gorgeous! Now you have my mind spinning with using the same technique. Thank you so much for the inspriation and for sharing your wonderful gift of creativity. Wow, Jennifer, your necklace is amazing. Love the Tutorial and looking forward to the vid, as well. I am going to have to try my hand at wire wrapping to create a bezel. Spread resin on the back of your paper and then flip over. Spread resin on the front and 'push' the resin into the paper so it will soak it up.
Allow the paper to dry for a few days. For some reason, paper will stick together if stacked before that, even if it feels cured and dry. Any tissue or very old paper will turn translucent with resin, and it's fun to layer them with your photos. Learn more fun resin techniques from Linda.
