After curing, choosing a color of pearl powder you like.

Make sure you choose a light color for this layer or there’s a clear separation from the first transparent layer. Stir with glue.

Put the shimmering powder:

Check whether the powder is suitable for putting powder or not by hooking with a toothpick.

The approximate state is the epoxy surface can return to mirror state in about 2 seconds.

Then dip the silver powder with this toothpick.

Poke the powder onto glue to ring shape, making sure the ends are thin and the middle is thick. 

Last, pull the transparent shimmering powder when semi-solidified. (third layer)

Step 7:
