I finally got off my arse and bought some resin!  Yay!  I didn't know what to do with it, though... well I had lots of ideas, but since it was my first time I decided to just play around with it.  I bought some green dye as well, and made a few tiny solid molds (which are boring, so I won't show those  Cheesy).  I also made this: 





I think it's pretty cool for my first time!  I chiseled at the edges because there was a small bit of resin build up (I put the buttons in upside-down... woops!), but I kind of dig it. 

Now then... what do I do with it?  Cheesy

That turned out really cool. We learn something new with practice huh? Drill holes in either end and add a chain for a bracelet or just one end for a necklace, or glue a magnet to the back for your refrigerator. It could also be used as part of a collage.

Take a look at this girl's work. She's fab!

Thanks!  I'll try that.  I think I may just make a magnet.
