I discovered that the resin completely blurs the facets if you put resin within resin, so it looks like a colored blob that’s kinda gem shaped, within the rest of the stone. I knew it would do it a little, but didn’t realize it would that much. Still is really neat, though.
Whew! Turns out my super nice silver paint looks blue next to chrome items, so I had to silver leaf the resin of the monocle to get it to match the silver snake chain. I’m also probably going to glue some felt on the underside of the nose piece so it’s more comfortable. Making a new one with the imbedded glass lens was a good decision.
I’m amused that it turns out I was out of white paint, so I used my super nice Rimmel french tipping nailpolish, and this is going to be shipped to the UK. XD
