21  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / a few questions about resin...yes i did read the thread. on: August 30, 2007 12:01:12 PM
 Wink
ok so yes i did read that resin thread and did a big search and got some answers but some things just werent clear to me...

i bought some easy cast and a set of molds and i wanted to do those paper embedded pendants but i am having a bit of bad luck with bubbles. now do i wait for it to get gel like and then gently lay the paper over the gelled part and then pour resin over that gel/paper layer or can i just put the paper in and pour? when i did it the latter way i found that my paper would just float away and off to the sides in the bigger molds. the smaller ones it didnt seem to have much bubbleage  but there was still some. i read about dipping them in to the mixed resin first but how much should i coat them with? now would using a hair dryer push the gelled resin around and misshapen it?

also i am interested in making a mold for plugs [stretched ear plugs]. would using the silicone ruin my plugs im making  the mold from or would it sort of just peel right off? the plugs im going to be making the mold from is glass if that helps.

thanks everyone in advance!

23  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / My very first quilt EVER! on: June 15, 2007 08:10:23 AM
i have been going through some stuff with my boyfriend [doing the time apart thing for a bit] so i got this idea to make a quilt because it would be time consuming. well, i got so into it I finished it in about 2 hours give or take start to finish. its a lap quilt so its not big by any means but i am very proud of it. this is the first time i ever did anything like this in my life. oh and its backed with terry. and no i didnt try to get anything to match up at all. i wanted the scattery look [if that makes sense] so i was kinda p.o'ed when those few strips matched. hardly any of my squares were even square or the same size.

here is my first attempt at shiny mud balls. i did it while i was at work so i couldnt focus all of my attention on getting it 100% perfect but i am pretty pleased with the results. they are definetly a labor of love..this one took me about 5 hours start to finish, including drying times.

30  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Star Crayons! on: June 06, 2007 05:17:23 PM
the way i did these was even more fun than the muffin crayons. i got one of those cheapie shape ice trays from ikea...i separated all of the crayons by color and melted them by color. i poured one layer of one color and let it cool...then i took the next layer of color and poured it on the already cooled first layer. after that i popped the whole thing in the freezer and they came out easy peasy. the kids freaked out [mom had a playgroup over that day] and again great for little hands and the cool layered effect is awesome.
