OH thanks all of you! Kiss
I have just made some more polymer clay accessories and will post them up soon! I have been thinking of pouring resin on some of my work...do you think it's a good idea?

Well, that might depend on just why you'd want to do that instead of using a regular acrylic sealer, and also how thick you want the coating to be.  Resin (would need to be epoxy resin for a "final coating" thing) is more trouble, less good to breathe, and takes longer to finish, e.g., though of course it can give a really glossy shine and be a bit more dimensional.
There's more info on coating polymer with epoxy resin on this page if you want to check it out:

I probably won't be pouring resin into this set of work but I want to try something later on. Are acrylic sealers good for coating resins? I have been playing around with resins recently but just don't know what gloss/sealer is good! (preferrably available at Michaels)

Resins don't need sealers, and they should be glassy on their own if handled well.  Was there any other reason you wanted to put a sealer on a sealer?
