Designer Tips

  • To prevent the image from bleeding, seal the front and back with Mod Podge® and let dry. Once dry, glue the image into buckle blank.
  • Glue on embellishments such as charms, shells, pearls, and ball chain. When dry, add resin to the buckle.
  • Consider brushing on the resin, since the buckle is convex, and has a shallow bezel cup.
  • See Tips for Epoxy Resin & Jewelry (PDF).
