Ive been eyeing off resin since accidently borrowing a book from the library that had resin casts in it.
so i finally found a kit on ebay as I was initially overwhelmed by all the different kinds of resin out there.
Here are my first two attemps..
One is of seashells that came with the kit.. Im so spewing that the glitter all settled to the top.. I was hoping the viscosity of the resin would suspend it.. would have been fab if it had (or if it had floated to the bottom)
The second is of coins I had from my travels or some of my fav places..these have been sitting around in a jar at home for years and so I have finally put them to use! Tho every time I look at it now I want to travel again.
I learnt this time to put the glitter in the layer below where i wanted it to be!!
A word of warning to all first time resin users.. the fumes really are worse than people tell you.
We crafted in a room with awesome ventilation with two fans blowing it all out the window,.. and the girl whose house we did it at still spent half the night vomiting!!
I am a bit dissapointed at how easily the resin scratches
I spent ages sanding all the imperfections out from the casting to then have them scratch again from just general handling
