Did you know? Cabochon was the default method of preparing gemstones before gemstone cutting was developed. Follow along and learn how you can make your own version.
In the video demo below, we used:
- Fusion Film
- Glass cabochon **Search for "cabochon" and you will find them sold on several online marketplaces and occasionally in local art stores.
- UV resin
- UV light
Cut the Fusion Film in the shape of the glass cabochon
Apply a coat of UV resin to the glass cabochon
Stick the fusion film to it while it cures
Apply UV light on it. This may only take 1-2 minutes depending on the strength of the UV light.
Seal the back with some more UV resin
Apply UV light again and you’re done.
Now you have your very own custom made glass cabochon made with Fusion Film and UV Epoxy Resin.
Hope this was helpful.

Is it possible to do this making the cabochon instead of buying pre-made glass cabochons?
