whaaaa still waiting for my new moulds!! It has been nearly a week since I ordered them.  Shocked

This weekend I played with picture images . I used some awesome old portrait images from victorian ephemeria (SP) . They looked really good. I printed them onto photo paper and didn't seal them or anything. I would love to find some really cool tattoo themed designs to put on photo paper. I found some cool tattoo themed fabric sample images .. any ideas would be appreciated.

The "floating " thing can be a real pain. Had issues with a sealed shell last night. Just had to pe patient and wait for the resin to go off and hold it with a toothpick.

Anyone have an idea of what cutting and polishing compounds are best. I had a couple of small marks happen along the edge of a couple of pendants. My fault really as I was too impatient to give it the time it needed to set. I have sanded them out with very fine nail files and finishing sandpaper. I used car cutting and polishing compound but it is still a little dull. Roll Eyes

i know what that's like, infiniteink. I ordered molds and resin off of a website about two weeks ago, and it has yet to come. I'm thinking about sending the company an email soon. I don't mind waiting, I just want to make sure I didn't just waste $50.

i got my new molds today!! i'm painting my kitchen, so i got cabinet pulls, OVALS AND RECTANGLES, and bangles, which are not for the kitchen, since my bangle molds i made hated me! (the bracelets flex when warm) i'm so excited to finish the kitchen painting, cause the cabinet doors are removed and they need to go up and show off new handles SOON! i ordered from resin obsessions, i think it took about a week, including the weekend. not too bad... and she offered help if i ever needed it, something no-one at michaels ever does!!

Really? What's the inner diameter? I'm just curious because I have the only two that I've seen sold, and they both fit me fine. I'm 5'9"-ish and my hands are by no means small. I find around 2.5" to be a good size. I don't think I have any bracelets that are 2.25", but would probably also be doable.

I will have to look, there are two that I got and one is extra tiny and the other is just a little tiny. I am 5'10" and kind of have man hands, but have been able to wear commercially made bangles.  I will let you know when I find out how big mine are.

i got mine on ebay, but they have them on sherri habbs site too.

and i know there are different sizes sold on some sites, but small ones will work for kids if they really are that small!

a couple of questions for all of y'all, having read this entire thread (wow)...

has anyone here used the dremel-type 'wizard' handheld tool made by black&decker?  there's one i'm thinking about buying off of craigslist, but i'd like some reviews first...and if anyone knows if the attachments are interchangeable between the two brands, i'd love that...

also, regarding 'envirotex lite'--is it suitable for reverse casting?  i've been looking  into getting into resin casting for a while now, as well as finding a thick gloss coating for large scale paintings.  someone recommended envirotex for the glaze, and then i saw it mentioned somewhere in this thread--i'd love it if i could use the same product for both jewelrymaking and coating paintings!

thanks!
