What is the curing time for the fat ones? I poured a batch on Wednesday and it's Friday and those babies will not budge out of the straw. Am I being too impatient? Do they need a few days to cure?
did you ever get your out?

I cut them out. Which really wasn't horrible at all. It's just such a super waste of the plastic mold.

Did you use the actual plastic label maker stuff? I've always liked the way those look. Nice work Smiley

I always thought you had have a wholesale account or a business-type account with Rings & Things to purchase from them.  Huh

Yep! Mix and match all you want!
Just make enough so that you don't run out. You will almost never be able to match your creation perfectly with a second batch of ink. Use the extras on a small run or mix it with something else later.
I store my extra ink in leftover yogurt or butter containers. Just put a piece of plastic wrap between the cup and the lid and you're good to go for a few months.
Enjoy Smiley

One of my girlfriends has one of the $100 range badge a minit machine. She got so frustrated with it that she doesn't use it anymore. I don't imagine results improve on the cheaper model.
Who would have thought you'd have to spend $400 to get a quality button maker!

So, while I'm busting out pendants and earrings like a man-woman.. I'm really struggling with how to make the jump from pendant to necklace. I'm thinking I'm in the market for bails? My dad used his drill press to make a small hole and then we used superglue to insert eye hooks (Forgive me, I'm hoping I'm using all the right jewelry terms, but I'm a printmaker, not a jeweler). My thought was that I could then put a jump hook through the eye hook and then thread the ball chain through that?
Wouldn't a bail would just be easier? Just glue on the back and be done, ya know? And, where do I find ball chain in bulk? I googled it with less than helpful results.

Yay! I love resin too! They look great!
Are you using bails on the back? or did you drill something into the pendant?
