ok...heres the best pic i have of the heat pendant w/ the lock of hair in it
Maybe you're already aware, but the pic didn't post.
Also, in case anyone's interested, I FINALLY was able to play with some resin and try the embossing (heat) gun on the bubbles, and WOW!
did it work well! I was planning on doing my little experiment as I mentioned a while ago (the heat gun, matches, and blowing thru a straw), but the embossing gun worked so well and quickly, there weren't any bubbles left to try the other stuff on!
Another recent success I thought I'd share, I've been trying for forever (ok, maybe not quite THAT long, but it feels like it) to figure out how to embed flowers in resin, and had little luck. Well, my mom suggested silica gel to dry them out first, and voila! It dries them out without pressing them, and the color stays pretty vibrant for the most part. I've tried about 10 different kinds of flower petals, and they didn't change at all in the resin.
