Wow- I think it looks awesome!!! Good job, and I have to agree with everyone on your other thread, the color choices are great. I think your sister will just love it.

Okay- thanks to aphelia Cheesy I have version 8 of this pattern that I can distribute again. So, if anyone else needs it, I can send it. And yes, I did ask Krystal forever ago for an okay to distribute this way.

Happy crocheting! (Happy hooking just sounds, well, bad  Wink)

Does anyone have an electronic copy of the pattern that you could send me? Due to computer issues, I only have my printed copy left, and I still get requests for the pattern from time to time. Plus, I would really like to have an updated version, since mine was one of the oldest versions.

PM me if you do - I'd really appreciate it!

Oh - I love it! I've studied planets for a living, and that's what your necklace made me think of even before I read the title!

Oops, I posted as my DH. I guess I forgot that he was logged in instead of me!

aphelia - your squares are really coming along! I love your color scheme, especially the alternating dark and light flowers in the same colors. Sigh, I am going to get back to this someday!

I have to agree with WOW. Everything is great, but that last piece is just amazing. I completely agree with the sentiment!

Thanks JustinKase! That's also a very good idea about the copies.

About removal - although I haven't tried it with this type of resin, I have had to remove things from spills in a laboratory. Assuming you're willing to completely sacrifice the backing if it all goes wrong... I would try heating it a bit and see if it goes soft, then you might be able to pry it out with a sharp blade. Conversely, freezing might separate the resin from the sides enough to pry out (might try this first). The last thing I would try is drilling it out - making lots of little drill holes and trying to get it to crack into pieces, but this might take a long time to clean up. Or I guess you could always carve it out with a pocket knife.

I have another question: Has anyone used cut out pics from magazines or catalogs with very thin paper? I tried to mod podge some from a catalog, and the writing on the other side kept showing through. Does this always happen?

I assume you can't see through the paper before you put it in resin. (If you can, then it has to do with the glue. I don't know Mod Podge comes in varieties that result in different degrees of translucense, but other decoupage glues do.) If so, then it means you didn't seal thoroughly enough, so yeah, putting it in resin without sealing would cause the same effect. Just do a few layers and don't forget the edges...

Thank you - now I see what I was missing - a different glue. I did three coats of Mod Podge, and each time the writing from the back showed through while it was wet, but mostly disappeared when dry. I didn't try it in resin after that because enough showed through that it already looked bad. I think what I would need to make a really thin paper not do this is a glue that dries white used only on the back. Other than just resin, decoupage glue is also new to me.
