To achieve the neon goodness of the cabs, I used nylon cord:


I held the cord over a baggie and chopped and chopped with scissors as fine as I could get.  Static electricity in the bags makes it have a felty clumpy appearance.  As I dropped into resin and mixed before pouring into molds, the chopped bits separated nicely.  After curing 24 hrs the cabs came out PERFECT!!  YAY!!  I am new with resin, so not sure what cures and what does not.  But I tried this and it worked wonders for me!!  Grin  Grin  Grin
Time for some neon eye candy:


These are such happy colors together!!  Grin


Bad lighting with this one, the yellow glows a little better than shown here.

I used glitter with the pink

I have been working on all of these for a long time.  So so so so so glad there are finished!!  Hope you love them as much as I do.   Smiley

I am not very personally familiar with resin, but they look good to me. What really impressed me though was the bead work on your pieces! It is simple sublime.

Thanks so much craftsters!

Kaleesi--this yrs prom dresses rubbed off on me.  The store felt 1985 again. And resembled the many neon crayon colors.  No beads or cabs to be found to match.  I had the neon nylon thread already, thought I would try it.  I pictured my dream prom jewelry and this is what I came up with.  Blame my dreams Kaleesi.   Roll Eyes

Panda--I was scared at first too.  I used easy cast resin and experienced some bubbles, and high humidity no no's but no pain was involved.   The hardest part is waiting 24 hrs and watching humid free forecasts.  I love viewing other cool ideas to imbed into resin here in crafsters!  Grin
