Bangles for Halloween

You might remember these retro side circle bangles that I cast a few weeks back.

In that post I told you that I had a little plan for them and today is the day to reveal that plan.

The flat circular areas on the side of the bangles is ideal for gluing on embellishments and these disks which I cast in a paint palette with left over resin are the perfect fit.

Once they were cured, I glued them on with Araldite (5 minute epoxy).

Such a simple but eyecatching result and with Halloween just around the corner the colours couldn't be more perfect.

If you're using a paint palette or other plastic as your mould, don't forget to give it a spray with mould release first or the resin will become a permanent fixture in the bottom of the palette!

'Til next time.....
