Ornament with Apoxie® Sculpt and Mica Powder

STEP 1
Place 5-1/2 inch snowflake ornament frame onto a nonstick surface such as Teflon or wax paper.
STEP 2
Mix equal parts of 2-part Apoxie® Sculpt and add small amounts of sparkle green Mica powder to the Apoxie until the desired shade has been reached.

Note: They must be equal for the epoxy to be activated and then to cure properly.
STEP 3
Add the sparkle green Apoxie to one of the inner kite shaped sections of the snowflake. Continue to add Apoxie to each of the adjacent kite shaped sections for a total of six sparkle green kite sections.
STEP 4
Repeat Step 2 using red russet. Add the red russet Apoxie to one chevron shaped section above one of the kite shaped sections of the snowflake.

Continue to add red russet Apoxie to each of the adjacent chevron sections for a total of six red russet chevron sections.

Allow 24 hours for the Apoxie to fully cure.
STEP 5
Cut one 10-inch length of Accu-Flex® professional-quality beading wire.
STEP 6
String onto the beading wire: one crimp, one Accu-Guard™ wire protector and the loop on the ornament frame. Pass the beading wire back through the crimp. Pull the beading wire so the crimp rests snug against the Accu-Guard leaving approximately 1/4 inch of beading wire on the end.

Crimp, then trim the excess from the short end of the beading wire.
STEP 7
Continue to string the following:
  • One 8x8mm flower bead cap
  • Three white opal AB 6mm bicones
  • One 8x8mm flower bead cap
  • One crimp
Pass the beading wire back through the crimp creating a loop approximately 1-1/2 inches. Crimp, then trim the excess from the short end of the beading wire.
