First - Thank you Manifest Content! You had answered my resin bubble question back under one of ammamma's posts. You said you used your lizard's heat lamp, but you had heard of people using heat guns. Since I am not fortunate enough to have a lizard, or heat lamp - I got a heat gun from Joann's.
Viola! You answered my question! There's no way I would be brave enough to post my first 99 photos
. But here are the first one's using a heat gun:
One of my floral photographs imbedded. I had yellow from my 'faux amber' attempt left over, so I tried it on this.
I know this one isn't 'girly' and cute. Sorry. www.eti-usa.com
(Castin' Craft's web site) had instructions on the faux amber. The black specks are polymer. I need to make them smaller next time. A fossil shark tooth and crinoid stem are imbedded.
I would have rather used clear with the photograph, but I had yellow left over. So I tried, just to see if I could do it or not. Actually the flower in the photo is yellow, anyway. I haven't cleaned up any edges on the pieces.
So thank you once again, manifest content! And for all you newbies - heat guns work!
