Sometimes, no matter how careful I am, some resin will spill over the edge of my glass tile and adhere to the front.
|You can see where the resin spilled over the edge and onto the|
front of this glass tile (which will be an art pendant for my friend Jenn!)
Don't use anything abrasive - it might scratch or damage the glass tile. Do this instead:
|Rubbing alcohol is your friend when you're working with sticky resin!|
- Soak a cotton pad, folded paper towel or rag with rubbing (isopropyl 70 or 90%) alcohol
- Set the tile face-down into the soaked pad and allow it to sit for a few minutes
- Gently rub the surface with a paper towel to remove the softened resin (if you notice the resin isn't dissolving, add more alcohol to your pad and start over)
- Be very careful not to get alcohol onto the finished resin coating the back, and only hold the tile by the edges so you don't press fingerprints into the resin which still may be soft
|Now the glass tile is so shiny, you can see my|
yard reflected in it. Yay!
|The resin on the back needs to cure for another 12-72|
hours, and then I can add a bail and ship the pendant
