It's very easy and little smell

I bought my resin @ the local craft store.... I also bought many different colors of dyes used in resin..it is sold right aside of the molds ,resin all together.I have used many different brands of resin....Enviro makes to many bubbles and it turns out cloudy. I also tried Castin craft ....oh my does it stink and your jewelry will smell very strong and does not mold quick, But the KING of molding(RESIN) and little smell is Easy Cast.It works every time as long as you mix correct and put in warm spot to harden over nite.
I hope this helps.

how did you exactly make that? I love how it looks! It makes me want to reach out and squeeze it because it seems so fresh and shiny like a gummy candy! I've never used resin but I want to just to make something like that!

Just buy resin and catyalist (easy cast) mix equal amounts..stir then pour into any plastic molds...It will turn out very hard,But look like a soft shiny candy.lol
I hope you have as much fun as I do.
I just made another batch using crystals and stones and they turned out so nice..I will list pictures later today Smiley

OOOOH, those are very pretty.
I just bought envirotex but am afraid the toxins might overwhelm my teensy weensy apt. how'd you ventilate? I was thinking of putting a huge fan in the window but then it'd be like an icebox in here.

How did you get holes to put jump rings through?  I have the resin and the mold, and have used only imbedded methods...The wire twist takes to much into chance with slow drying resin.  Do you drill through, and if so, with what kind of tip?  I assume a dremel...that's what the crafty ones do Smiley

Before I forget, can you use regular powder dye, or paint  or does it have to be resin specific??
