91  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Resin necklace, sand and shells on: May 19, 2005 08:37:29 AM
Here is a necklace I just finished for my mom. It's sand/shells embedded in resin. It's very shiny, so kind of difficult to photograph, but you can get the idea.

I'm having lots of fun working with the resin - I have about 374 molds in various stages of drying around my house. The hardest part is keeping them free of cat hair during the drying process. Grin

Some things I have found helpful when working with resin:

Small, disposable plastic cups to mix the resin in
Measuring spoons so you get the same amount of resin in each mold
Chopsticks are great for mixing the resin and catalyst
Tweezers for picking up stuff to put in molds
A wet rag or paper towel for cleaning up any spills on your surface quickly
A well-ventilated room, a fan also helps

Good luck!

I made some resin bracelets this weekend using tarot card deck pictures - unfortunately the shiny surface makes it difficult to get a good picture of it.

It's a regular ice cube tray from Target - I think they were around $1.50 for two. They are super flexible and easy to pop out the molds unlike some I've used in the past.

I found most of the images thru Google image search.

Here is my attempt at making a resin bracelet. That resin stuff is tricky! It's Napoleon Dynamite in case you don't recognize the freaky looking people in the resin.  Roll Eyes
