1. Mix the resin
What I'm doing here is mixing equal parts of the solution, so there's a part A and then there's a part B. You're gonna wanna mix an equal part of each and then I'm going to stir them really well.
2. Pour the resin
Then you will go ahead and just pour them into your mold.
Spread out the resin to ensure it's even.
Give it proper time to set, about 10 to 15 minutes and then you'll pull it out.
3. Gluing the two sides together
Now that I have made both of my molds, I am just taking the glue and I'm going to glue them together, trying to get them as even as possible.
4. Paint the bell silver
You can use whatever metallic paint you want. I'm just using a silver mousse to paint over this. I went with silver just because I wanted something a little bit different but you can pick whatever color you want when you are creating your ornaments.
5. Tie the clear thread
Once your ornament has dried, take the clear thread. You're gonna thread it through the hole of the actual plastic ornament, then the hole of the ornament that you made, and then you're going to let it dangle just a little bit while you secure it in place with knots.
6. Add faux snow
Add the fake snow to the other side of the ornament.
7. Close the ornament
Close the clear plastic ornament and tie the final knots on the thread.
