Holiday Scrabble Tile DIY Rings and Resin Tips
I had a blast making new holiday jewelry for my shop. These rings are on sale in my shop for only $2.84 here. If you are feeling crafty, you can make some Scrabble jewelry too. I have worked with a few different resins, but have come to prefer Glossy Accents. It is made in the USA, is acid free, and non-toxic. I find it dries a lot faster then other similar finishes available. The more gel you use, the longer it will take to dry. It protects your image, and adds dimension to your sticker.
Glossy Accents Clear Gel
Small Holiday Sticker
Apply your holiday sticker to the blank side of your Scrabble tile. Cover with your Glossy Accents gel. Use a needle to scrape any bubbles off of the gel top. Let dry, covered, free from dust, according to package directions, for 15 to 60 minutes. I usually allow more time, to make sure I don't mess up the nice clear glossy finish. Once dry, glue your tile to your ring blank with jewelers glue. I prefer jewelers glue E-6000. Jewelers glue is toxic, so please follow package directions, and use it in a well ventilated area. It is best to let glue dry for 2 days prior to wearing ring.
