Bunnies Under Glass

How funny is this!!! After putting a monkey brad on a necklace in an earlier post here, I started looking for other fun brads in the scrapbook section of the craft store. I found cute little bunnies and knew I could do something with them. Using a two part epoxy and mold, I embedded the brads (after snipping off the prongs) in the plastic and allowed to dry. The instructions on the epoxy explains how to do this very clearly but I still had trouble getting all the bubbles out. It said to use a blow dryer to bring them to the surface. I thought I could use the heat gun instead......on a plastic mold.......think about it for a minute. So now I have a slightly deformed mold in a few places........and still have bubbles.
But, even with the bubbles, I love these little guys. I glued bails onto the backs and now I have the sweetest little pendants for spring. Diana
