Italian polymer clay artist and instructor's goldfish bowl earrings tutorial is for you if you have some CDs you wish to recycle. Once the shimmery layer is removed, you are left with a transparent plastic material which can be cut up and used as a base.
She uses transparent polymer clay as the glue when attaching the CD cutout to the wire frame.
This method does result in a thickened back which does not look neat. What I suggest is to make little goldfish etc in polymer clay. Once baked, they can then be embedded in epoxy resin. Remember to first lay the wire frame on packing tape and pour one thin layer of resin. Embed the polymer clay pieces and let the resin cure before adding a second layer.
Does this make sense?
