I was playing with resin this weekend. Some turned out great, some not so well. These are just a couple of my favorites.

In a "why didn't I think of this sooner" moment, plastic confetti sold to put in greeting cards. Plus blue cake decorating sugar, and a tonne of silver glitter. Definitely my favorite of the batch. I only have 2 molds this size, I'm definitely going to have to make more for my mom, aunt, grandma. Maybe I'll even get to keep one for myself.  Smiley


Just blue sugar and silver glitter, plus some silver star-shaped glitter.

The pics don't do them justice. They look positively frosty in person.


After seeing so many people do cool stuff with cake sprinkles, I had to try it for myself. Turned out better than I expected.

I put Hello Kitty stickers in a couple. I think they'll be Christmas gifts for my sister and cousin.


Thanks for looking. Smiley

Wow! Very nice! I keep looking at the resin casting stuff at the craft store, but I am trying so hard not to accumulate more "stuff". I may have to make an exception after seeing your work.
Thanks for sharing!! Nice work!!

Very cool! Cheesy I bought resin stuff but haven't had the time to work on anything made of resin.  I love your hello kitty sticker pendants/charms X3 they're adorable, I'm sure your sister and cousin will love them.

So cute!  I keep meaning to do something similar but I haven't yet.

I wrote an article about jewelry design ideas you might be interested in - one of the ideas is using colored resin with some ideas for tinting it.  The article is here: http://www.how-to-make-jewelry.com/jewelry-design-ideas.html

Any chance you'd write me up a tutorial to post on the website? I can't offer much (except the fame of being web-published of course, all the good karma involved in helping me out, and a permanent link to your website or Etsy shop if you have one)

Hee hee. I definitely know the feeling!

The "Resin" thread in the Discussions & Questions board has more information than I could ever hope to give you. I believe that the first page discusses molds. I use polyester resin that I had to order online.

Oh, and magpielikeme, I sent you a PM.  Smiley
