18C262A - Miss Mermaid Necklace18C262A - Miss Mermaid Necklace

Who doesn’t love anything Mermaid? This mixed media necklace is jam packed with fun techniques to achieve a sea weathered ancient look and a little bit of Art Nouveau touches. First we will create the Ice Resin Mermaid face and art nouveau components, then play with a patina color, a little Alcohol ink and even a little acrylic paint, to expose the details. Then working with copper sheeting you will create the shape you like for the back plate and then some letter stamping, forging and patina work. The resin components will be wire riveted onto the back plate. Create a beaded simple looping chain for the necklace and wrapped loop dangles for the rest.

This class is all about cold connection techniques, playing with Ice Resin and personalization.

Materials fee includes: Ice Resin®, Parawire wire in 20 and 22 ga, 24 ga copper sheeting, Czech glass beads and seed beads, Vintaj® chain, wire rivets and findings. Silicone molding compound. Resin prep board. Written instructions with step-by-step photos/diagrams.

Level: Novice and above
