It seems like it would be difficult to seal, would release a lot of air, and then melt, but I just don't know!

I guess flowers are too fragile? It would be cool to have an eternal daisy chain bracelet.

first off.. love all of the new bangles!
now for my question...when i try to use sprinkles i put a bottom layer and let it harden and then i add sprinkles to a resin that has set for a while but then it all turns pink when i mix it in and it all sinks to the bottom. do you put the sprinkles in and then pour resin on top? I think i'm missing something here. anyones help would be appreciated

I cast a rose petal last night, just in a pendant to see how it went. I'm going to cast petals from my birthday roses from my husband, hopefully. They need to be really dried out, and sealed well to protect the color from the temperature during curing. You could just buy them already dried, I've used those and they work. but for the whole head of a flower you'd need to make sure it's really dried well. For insects you can dip them in acetone to facilitate drying out the oils in them, and then put them on a heater vent, but I suspect acetone might hurt a flowers color?
 I keep those silica gel packets, you could get those from a florist for free, you could put it in a tupperware container with one of those to absorb the moisture, and then try a heat vent. Well in NY it snowed today, YOU might have sun to set it in! Anyway, make sure it's definitely dry, and then seal it. I use spray acrylic sealer that says on the label it works to preserve flowers. But I've only done petals!

And Betsy, I could bring molds and stuff, get the resin in Texas, and leave you with the supplies!

I just have to say that cutesy jewelry is so not my thing, and yet I would totally wear the cute sprinkles bangles!  I think they would officially be the only pastel thing in my wardrobe, but I love love love them!  Great work.

Don't be afraid to tell your truth.

Have we got some internal sequin issues, Benjamin?
