1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Re: Jeweler's Grade on: March 16, 2014 07:02:48 PM
I know this question is really old, but I thought I'd answer in case anyone else looks at this.  From my experience, Ice Resin cures with less bubbles and is extremely clear. It looks more like glass. So basically, I think it's just a higher quality than other brands that one might find at a craft store.  I don't know if it's any more scratch resistant (I haven't tried scratching any of my resins), but it looks a lot nicer in my opinion.  Smiley

oh WOW those are awesome!  I LOVE the style of the little girl- very cool!   Cheesy

Can I ask what kind of markers you used?  I've tried Sharpies on shrink plastic before (as well as some other kinds of markers and even colored pencils) but they all seem to come off onto my hands and stuff after they're shrunk, almost as though there's too much ink because it's being compressed.  Do you have this problem at all?

DeSade13- Literally 2 seconds after I posted, I came across this from Neurosylum in a different thread: "Something I learned from resin making was baking them for 15 min or so at 350 degrees to get rid of tackiness. However, that made the colors fade on some of my pieces (I think it's due to the fact that the runnier, transparent dyes held color more loosely than the thicker, opaque ones)."  Maybe that would work?

I obviously don't know what the resin is in, but would it maybe be possible to salvage your project by somehow cutting the tacky part off (I'm picturing removing a top layer with an xacto knife or something) and pouring another layer of resin over it? I know I'm not really answering your question, and if you've been working with resin for a while, you've probably already thought of that, but I thought I'd throw it out there just in case...   Wink

I'm thinking something like a grommet, but those are usually hollow circles.  I would try searching grommet, brad, or maybe even eyelet.

...They have one product, called Zerovoc,...

Wow, that stuff sounds really cool!  My only concern would be that (according to the description on their website) it sounds like it's kind of flexible?  Please definitely let us know how it works out- I, for one, am super curious!!   Smiley

I'm not sure if this is the place for this post or not but last night I made some resin casts for pendants in a round painter's palette and in a square painter's palette. I wiped the molds with vegetable oil before pouring in the resin and this morning the round molds popped right out but the square ones are stuck in there (yikes!!).

PS - I've read all the resin posts which have been really informative but I couldn't find anything about this particular question Smiley

I know this post was really old, but I've been thinking about using vegetable oil as a release in candy molds (I currently have some that are seriously stuck, but the ones I managed to get out turned out awesome, so I want to keep using them).  My question though, does the vegetable oil effect the clarity and/or smoothness of the resin on the side that it's touching?  Thanks to anyone that can help!

Hmm... if you're sure that you're using the correct ratio, I would say either it needs to be mixed together a bit more/better, or maybe you got a bad batch of resin somehow, cuz it usually sets up overnight (I use the same kind).  Oh, depending on where you are, humidity may be causing an issue too.  Either way, don't give up, it's fun once you get it!!  Wink

Are you, by any chance, a fan of Jamie Hewlett? He was the illustrator for Tank Girl and The Gorillaz. Your drawing styles are very similar.

I thought the EXACT same thing when I saw this a second ago!!!  Very super fantastically awesome job!!

I'm not usually one much for super girly things either, nor am I a fan of gold, but I still really like that necklace a lot!!  I think it's the asymmetry that makes it work so well- very cool!  (Nice job on your other creations too- I love how different from one another they all are)
