Small Crosses

becky_iaMarch 10, 2008

This is something I worked on this weekend to display at the Garden Symposium next weekend. They are drying today and tonight, I hope to pour resin on top. That should give them three days to harden before Saturday. This is my first attempt at doing crosses. So not sure how they will go over, but did have fun making them! Things I used-Brazilian agates, beads, seed beads, stained glass, small 1/2 marbles, mirror tile, blue willow china and sea shells.

Yeah, CAC: Y'all notice that we all inspire each other. This is really a wonderful forum and a huge inspirational pool. One does something, and inspires another and away they go with it. It's sorta like a stick relay game. Maybe y'all are too young to remember that game, but I love this playground.

Hi Annie, The crosses come from Michaels. They are small 9 x 7. The first pictures were without the resin. Now, I am posting pictures of them finished with the resin. Using resin is like putting on 50 coats of finish-looks like it is polished, sort of an embedded look and I don't have to grout them. If I did, the grout would hide all the little shells, and beads. Just something different, I guess. Saturday will tell if others like them. Price wise - thinking of $25-30 for the crosses using the formula of 2-3 times what I have in them.

Yea, I am really bummed about not being there with you guys...but I will be another time, you can bet on it! I will be watching you all from afar.....with baited breath to see what you all come up with!

OHGOODGRIEF! What a difference. I see what you mean - on closeup the teensy beads would be lost in grout. Great idea to resin this type of work. Wonderful job, girlie. These are really pretty.

Wow I love the resin, those are beautiful. Does it take a lot of resin to do that? I just love how they look compared to being grouted.
