1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / How to get superglue residue off of my resin! on: July 28, 2012 11:28:32 AM
I covered a small disc of polymer clay with epoxy resin (easy cast) and glued it into a purse hook for a gift.  When I pushed the disc into place, the glue pooled out and got on the resin.  I've been trying  wiping it with acetone for days and even tried sanding it off.  It has reduced a bit, but it's still not what it once was.  Half of it is very dull due to the glue residue.  Any advice for getting it back to being pretty?  What about putting another layer of resin on top, would that help?

I recommend using future floor wax for glazing polymer clay.  I gave up using the Sculpey stuff and if I'm not buffing my beads for shine, then I just use the Future.  It comes in a huge bottle for about 4 bucks, so it's pretty cheap, too.  I use 2 coats for a high gloss.

I use a glaze called "Glossy Accents" by Inkssentials.  It has a pink and white label.  It's for paper, but I use it for polymer clay all the time.  It's hardens just like epoxy resin, but no mixing.  I would probably paint it on the finished solids.  Sorry about your earring.  Sad

Did you just stitch a standard crochet chain?  That's the only thing I know how to crochet.  Great ideas!

  The petals were all individually cut out and I did the same with the centers.  I made eyelets on the back and laced wire through that I connected to chain.  I then connected the beads (that I did on beadwire) to the chain.  I'm having trouble getting the flowers to face the right way when I'm wearing it, so next time I do something similar, I might try doing a double chain to see if that helps.  Thanks!

I'm not sure if this should go under this board, or the poly clay one.  This is a polymer clay daisy necklace that I made this weekend.  I kind of got inspired by a necklace I saw one of the Project Runway contestants wearing when I was watching some reruns.   Thanks for looking!

Are the beads polymer, also, or just the duck?

Made this necklace this weekend and am totally in love with it!  I don't feel at liberty to explain how I made it, since I belong to a Polymer Tutorial Website where I learned the technique at.  Thanks for looking!

It's the character for "Joy".  It says it below the character, but it must be hard to see.  Using a cell phone camera to take the pictures.  I need to get a better one.  Thanks!
