Perfect Packaging III: Time & Technology Key Fobs


I’ve made a few key fobs over the last couple of days (yet more to fit on my table for the church Christmas Fayre), using a ‘steampunk’ antique brass pendant with quite a deep bezel. I’ve added a layer of Pebeo Prisme Fantasy Paint first, and allowed that to dry before starting to layer pieces of old computers and watch mechanisms. I used Lisa Pavelka’s Magic Glos UV hardening resin, which is crystal clear and sets within minutes in my Imagepac UV box, allowing layering of the encapsulated items. After a final brim-full top up with resin and a long harden under the lamps, I added an antique brass split ring to complete the key fob.


IMG_2826_wOf course these little art pieces required a bespoke pack, so I have designed one which again is a no-glue fold up box with tag closure, and I managed to get two per A5 sheet which was handy, and leaves me with an empty one… Should I fill it with another key fob or perhaps something else?

  1. These are super-cool, Neil. Love the glossy look of the resin with all those gorgous steampunky bits embedded in it! Fabulous colours too. Your packaging is very professional too.
