...I put the butterflies in first...then poured...in the case of candy sprinkles I do resin halfway...then sprinkles...then more resin. If it's candy conversation hearts...same as the butterflies...candy first. That's what has worked for me...don't know if its the 'correct' thing to do or not.


I'm guessing the difference for these is the weight? Actually, no that doesn't make sense... (thinking out loud, sorry!)  Um, how do you decide when to put an item in FIRST, or to pour first, let set up, THEN embed and pour again?  I'm wanting to try little flowers (among other things), and I'm not sure which way works best.  Thanks!!!

Has anyone ever tried sealing live flowers or leaves, etc. (not dried out) with any sort of spray (I'm picturing like a clear gloss coat of Krylon)?  Or would maybe painting them with a super thin coat of the resin work (although Miss Lisa said the resin leeches the color- would that happen with a thin coat?)?  Or the Mod Podge like she suggested?  Baerbaer, were your petals and leaves dried out? I've been desperately trying to find out how to do this because I really want to make a pendant with resin and live flowers (the kind of flowers I want to use don't dry well at ALL), and I've been searching all over to no avail.  Cry  Any and all help is SUPER greatly appreciated!!! Thanks!!!

Hi! Unfortunately, I don't have an answer to your question, rather a question for you (hope you don't mind)! I'm hoping to try something similar next weekend, and I'm wondering what sort of resin you used (I see you said polyester resin with hardener, but I'm brand new to this, so I'm wondering if you could be a little more specific? I have no idea what I'm looking for really. Did you buy them separately, or was it a kit...?).  I want to try making a pendant with fresh-cut flowers, and I've read that it might cause some issues with the moisture making the resin not cure, and since you said yours hardened without problems, I'd like to get something similar.  =)

Also, I'm curious since you said yours turned into big globs, did you pour yours into a mold?  If not, maybe try that to contain the resin. 

Thanks so much!!
