How Toos on Rings (hope this will help) ** PICS **UP DATE
#1
Okay, now when you start you need a bottle, tape, & the paper that a form is stuck to...

Make sure you pick the colors you want to use... I like Tammy Taylor Prizma colorz... I'm addicted to them... =]
[Image: 100_4213-1.jpg]
When you start your first color make sure you do it really thin if your going to be doing 3-D nail art on it but if your just going to do 1 color make sure you put the acrylic on thicker...

Make sure you go all the way around the lid in a line to make it even...

Then start laying down your flower pedals...

[Image: 100_4215-1.jpg]

[Image: 100_4216-1.jpg]

Once you are done putting the flowers down you can put a thin coat of clear acrylic all around the ring...

[Image: 100_4217-1.jpg]

After you are done with putting the clear on & it sets up drill it down to how thick you want it...

[Image: 100_4219-1.jpg]

Make sure you look at it head-on to see if it is even all the way around...

[Image: 100_4220-1.jpg]

Then take it off the lid...

[Image: 100_4221-1.jpg]

File the edges off...

[Image: 100_4222-1.jpg]

File it & the edges smooth so it wont cut in to the finger...

[Image: 100_4223-1.jpg]

Buff it smooth...

[Image: 100_4224-1.jpg]

Clean it off...

[Image: 100_4225-1.jpg]

Place it on top of the OPI lid cause the lid will hold it right when you put it in the UV light...

[Image: 100_4226-1.jpg]

Put your gel top coat on it & make sure there are no bubbles...

[Image: 100_4227-1.jpg]

When you put it in the light make sure you keep rotating it so the gel coats it evenly, if you don't it will look lumpy...

[Image: 100_4228-1.jpg]

When your done this is what it should look like...

[Image: 100_4231-1.jpg]

Hope everyone likes the little how too... I tried my best... It's not easy doing them with out a video recorder... DVD is next on the list... =]

This is how you make the other rings that are a little easier to make...


First of all you will have to make the rings really thick for this to work...

[Image: 100_4250.jpg]

Then you take your drill bit & drill out lines or holes in the acrylic... Keep the rings on the bottle do not take them off...

[Image: 100_4251.jpg]

Once you have done that take a buffer to get all the excess acrylic off the rings... Then fill in the holes with any color acrylic you want...

[Image: 100_4252.jpg]

After you are done with that you need to drill down the ring to how thick you want it & this is when you will see your design come through...

[Image: 100_4254.jpg]

Then just file, buff & polish & you got more rings... =]

[Image: 100_4255-1.jpg]
[Image: 100_4256-1.jpg]

I like to make a lot of rings so you can put 3 to 5 rings on one bottle lid depending on how wide you make them... =]

Can you tell me approximately what size ring does the bottle top make? I thought it was a bigger size, like a 9, but when it's on the OPI bottle it looks smaller.

The lid I did it on is like a 7 1/2 or 8

& I haven't sold any of my rings yet till November, that way they can buy them as Christmas gifts... =]

I made two rings. I had a hard time making the thickness the same all the way around. But I'll keep trying!

Do you have a tutorial on how to make the flowers and leaves? Mine didn't turn out so well. :oops:
