Tools and supplies: resin mixing supplies (#82-599), Crafter’s Pick™ The Ultimate adhesive (#60-280), Mod Podge®

TIPS:
Cut image to fit buckle blank, coat both sides with Mod Podge and let dry. Glue your image to the buckle blank. Once dry, glue the rectangular gemstone donut to the buckle blank and let it dry overnight.

Follow the directions for mixing the EasyCast epoxy and fill the ‘donut hole’ over the image with resin. Let it dry overnight, attach a belt and you’re ready to saddle up!
