I've just started making resin pieces after I've read this post. They were so easy to make and FUN!!! Great TUT btw. I have a few questions maybe you guys can answer for me. What size drill bit do I use for my dremel? I used a bigger size. It seems to look okay. But are smaller drill bits better for the appearance or to make sure they dont beak while your drilling? Would jump rings work for attaching it to a necklace? If so what size should I use? Has anyone tried using candy molds with any luck? I want to make rings but where would I find the circle part to attach to the resin piece? Would I glue it?
Would anyone know how to make these from a pair of pants? Do they have to be straight leg or can they be flaired at the bottom? DO I cut at the seam and add the fabric that way? Wouldnt adding more fabric to the side cause them to be really big fitting after wards? Any one know a pattern on here. I tried searching but I found nothing. THanks
I love that you made them into wide leg jeans. Were these jeans straight leg or have that flare at the bottom? Did you just open the seam on the side and add your fabric to them to make them wide legged? I love everything about these. I wanna make some as cool as yours.
how do you know what size shirt to use? LOL if your a large in pants should i use a large T-shirt? Sorry if this is a silly question. But I always wanted to make these but never know what size shirt to get
Thanks! I kind of follwed the directions. I cut the can like i was supposed to. Layed it on a cutting board. Taped the can down. And used a razor Knife. Cut out the shape I wanted then put it on the foam and cut it out to the shape of the butterfly. And oh yes it was sharp. I think ill add the cut can to the foam next time before I try and cut. I think it will be easier to cut and easier to hold with out getting cut. I do think that the Sizzix machine would be way easier and have a cleaner look But Im going to try other things first before I go out and buy one. Im going to try using cookie cutteres for shapes. And I think it would be easier to cut around. Im also going to try those paper punches that come in different shapes. If anyone has any other ideas on what to use if they dont have a sizzix machine please post!!!!
I love this idea. I read this last night and i made one. Although I dont have one of those machines I think it came out ok for my first try. If I posted a pic here would that be rude? Thanks for giving me the idea~
