I'm a huge fan of Celtic Cloths. They have pul, hemp, bamboo, and cotton in quite a few different varieties. I don't sew diapers, I sew mama cloth, but the idea is the same...I've ordered alot of bamboo velour through them and loved it!

Yeah, I'm feeling really inadequate right now...I'm so afraid mine aren't going to measure up to all of these  Undecided Embarrassed

Okay, I'm totally unsatisfied with my first resin casting.

First, I'll go ahead and say that I'm not making jewelry, I'm making a set of two replacement turn-signal lenses for a 63 dodge car. The originals from this car are all cracked and gross looking, and replacements are very expensive and hard to find.

So, we bought a silicone mold-making kit (containing a jar of base and a bottle of catalyst) and mixed them as per the directions, then poured the mold. The mold came out off-white, no problem, whatever, that works. We cut the mold open, pulled out the original, mixed up the resin, poured it in, squeezed out bubbles, put more in, etc. and finally it was full. Let it sit for nearly two days and popped the mold open...and then noticed something weird.

Our "crystal clear" resin is YELLOW. The tape on the outside of the mold? Also yellow. And the little droplets of resin on top of the mold? Yellow. The extra resin, poured in a cup and let to set up just for fun? Clear as crystal.

Why did my mold turn my resin yellow?!?! Is there any way at all to have it NOT do this, without having to go spend another $30 on silicone, and without delaying this project so far that the lenses aren't done before my brother-in-law's wedding? They're for him, btw, for his "getaway" car.

 Cry Cry Cry I just want this project to work!

Well, that first one just got ruined, so I'm starting over on it, and the second one didn't turn out AT ALL so I'm making something different for that...and the third one, I haven't been able to get materials for, but will get tomorrow...so wish me luck on getting it all done in time, everyone! I just got a sewing job sprung on me (brother in law is getting married on saturday, and his bride-to-be wants me to hem 6 pairs of jeans for her, for the honeymoon, TOMORROW before we go to the movies with them at 6), and will have to try to get everything done on Wednesday.  Grin I can do it! I think I can, I think I can, I think I can!

Okay, I just worked with resin for the first time ever, and I have a question:

When you get resin on your skin, and don't wash it off for maybe 4 or 5 minutes (I did wipe it off, but it left a thin coating), should the skin turn bright red?

 Grin

I'm wondering if this is normal, or if it's just another one of my lovely list of allergies.

I've started my first ornament, and it is going waaaaay slower than I expected. Hoping to be able to use the dremel this weekend instead of sticking with a hand-saw...

 Grin I love giving little hints.

My partner flaked, so I only sent half of my package (the two small items), so that's one group out...I don't know about the rest.
