okay I have read all 98 pages of this thread and I still have a question? I live in a very small town, I spent all day saterday looking for resin and the only type I could find was from walmarts, I want to make jewelry with it, it is made by bondo a automotive resin, fiberglass resin with hardener, household, marine, automotive, will this work, should i buy or should i not, it was only 10.97 for a 32 oz bottle.. please any advice!!!

I have no advice, except to reiterate the battle cry of craftsters everywhere: GO FOR IT!  Tongue Wink Cheesy

Try it, follow the directions, and let us know how it goes.

thank you, I will just have to try it, I found it in the automotive section, by the little bottles of paint for fixing paint chips, and they had extra packs of hardener you could buy seperate too...

okay I tried the automotive resin last night, well this was the first time I have ever used resin, it set up quickly I made 4 oz and half of it was gelled before i could pour it, but it did work, it was a light reddish brown color when mixing and the final product is the same I tried to embed some pics and you cant see them, but it had no tackness this morning and is hard as a rock, I thought i might try to paint them to see what they look like then or put a touch of paint to it as mixing to see what happens, but I still wish they were clear.I am going to try to post pics for ya all...oh it came out of the molds super easy, I did spray them with pam, turned them over and out they fell..

I can see them. They are neato, I know you wished they were clear, but I like the caramel color. That's neat that you found something in the automotive department, that u can use for neat crafty stuff. Love your shapes as well:)

i work at wal-mart and the other night i was stocking that stuff in automotive and thinking to myself "wow..wonder if this works for jewelry!" and i guess i just got my answer Smiley

i might have read this wrong... but did you say that you were going to try and paint over them? If you do, please let me know how that goes for you. I might just have to go try that myself Smiley
