  2. Using the Nunn Design Glue, paint a thin coat into the base of the bezel. Place your collage image from Step 1 into the base of the bezel on the wet glue. Starting in the center, burnish the image down with a cotton swab, pressing any excess glue out to the edges.

  3. Paint a thin coat of the Nunn Design Glue over the top of the collage image ensuring you cover all 90° angles. Let dry overnight (8 – 12 hours). Note: The dry time is critical to prevent bubbles from occurring due to the moisture in the collage image.

  4. Using the Gel du Soleil, drop a few drops into the center of your fully dried collage image. Tip the bezel slightly allowing the Gel to flow to the sides. Continue to add additional amounts of Gel until you have filled the bezel to the desired height.

  5. Use the headpin, matches, or a lighter to pop any bubbles that come to the surface. The headpin can be used directly on the bubble. To use the matches or lighter, hover the flame closely over the bubble in the resin – this will pull the bubble to the top and pop it. Be careful to keep the flame from actually touching the resin.

  6. Let cure for 20 minutes under a glass dish on the windowsill in direct sunlight or under a UV lamp.  It must have the full intensity of the sun (no clouds) to cure.

  7. Using your cutters, cut the loop off of the end of the Mini Link Circle. Glue the piece into the center of the Small Link Circle using strong glue such as Bond 527 Cement or E6000.
