Question....the squeeze bottle do you have to throw that all away after your done? 

Yeah...I'm afraid so...with the squeeze bottle. I haven't come up with a way to clean those. I just wipe out the measuring cup with paper towels and let it dry... No need to throw that out! You could pour directly from the measuring cup...but I don't have that kind of control!

And don't be chicken...try it you'll like it!

Thanks for the tutorial! I've always wanted to venture into resin... but never found any good instructions on the net. Great pendants by the way!

One question, what can you use for molds or are there specific molds for resin?

Easy cheap convenient molds for resin = ice cube trays!
Otherwise, check your local craft store for resin specific molds...although I do believe candy molds or soap making molds can also work as well!  Wink

Hah...I feel like it's peer pressure....aw, c'mon...all the cool kids are doing it!   Cheesy  I'm so happy to be spreading the resin love around!

Also, forgot to mention...its a good idea to put something down to protect your work surface...such as newspapers or a vinyl tablecloth...in case of dripping.  Wink

another question.....can you put your findings in the resin after you pour it.....I've seen the candy sprinkles, are they put in before or after......how fast does it set up?
