We crafters love versatility in the products we buy. More varied uses means less money to spend to make crafts, and more is good. At least as a crafter. Resin is one of those multi-use products.

Resin starts out as a liquid, usually in two parts, and hardens to a clear durable plastic. Among it’s many uses, resin can be poured in molds of any shape, placed over surfaces to seal and protect, or even tinted. All manner of things can be put into the resin to create fun jewelry, too.

This goldfish painting by acidtrix is so beautiful and colorful, and the resin will keep it looking that way.

Here are some varied types of pendants made with resin.

    Love resin and it’s effects. Don’t forget also about the resin clays like Apoxie Sculpt, and UV cure resins too – those are great too, especially when you want a quicker project and don’t want to wait a few days for a full cure.
