Creating a Magic-Glos® Pendant with a Polymer Clay Steampunk Fish

Presented by Christi Friesen, Award-Winning Artist, Author and Educator,
Exclusively for Fire Mountain Gems and Beads®

Apply a small amount of Poly Bonder™ adhesive to the back side of the Steampunk fish. Press the fish into the glass surface of the watch component.

View the ''Creating a Polymer Clay Steampunk Fish'' how-to video for more information.
Apply Magic-Glos inside the watch component around the fish, approximately 1/8th of an inch. Rock the watch component around to spread the Magic-Glos to the edges. Add more Magic-Glos if needed to cover the entire surface of the watch.

Note: Magic-Glos is a self-leveling resin. This means that once it reaches the edges of the component, it will level itself out throughout the surface.
Add beads and gears of your choice. Place the watch component in direct sunlight or under a UV or LED lamp for approximately 10 - 15 minutes to cure.

Note: Adding crystals to resin will cause them to lose their luster, but they will keep their color.
Apply an additional layer of Magic-Glos to the watch component and over the surface of the Steampunk fish. Spread the resin to the edges by rocking or using a needle tool. Use a wet wipe or tissue to remove excess resin from the tool.

Tip: Use the needle tool to pop any bubbles that form in the resin.
Add more beads and gears as desired. Place one large gear along the top edge of the watch component to add depth. Cure once more according to manufacturer's instructions.
Repeat Steps 4 and 5 as desired to the edge of the watch component.
