im so disapointed tho! my mold release didnt say to wait any amount of time at all...it just says to spray it in the mold and then work it into the mold...which i did with a paper towel or whatever but it seems to almost wipe it all off but I was still able to get my pieces out but the fogginess is REALLY frustrating..and major props and possibly a free piece of jewelery to whoever can permanently solve this problem for me! lol I am sooo overly frustrated cause I have some really awesome pieces and I will be entering an arts festival but I want them to look shiny and glossy. Now clear nail polish and a glossy varnish spray havent worked because all they do is create a glossy layer over the foggy layer.... I want the front of the piece to look as shiny and glossy (and like a magnifier almost..that effect too) that the back has! please if anyone has any other advice because I have done all sorts of searches and havent really had much luck.

no they work just fine...the resin actually actss as a kind of preservative for the food etc ...i ususally use food and plants and have no problems

yeah kat.. I def had that happen.... I didnt try without the mold release cause I was afraid they wouldnt pop out of the molds ( are you using the standard molds you find at micheals by any chance?) So they did come out ok without the mold release? but as for the fogginess it really bothers me too and im thinking it is because of the mold release which is kinda oily it seems
