OOOOOOHHHHH i have been thinking about resin. This tut has opened my brain meats to doing resin. I have armed myself with the info and now need to raid the craft store. Sadly we don't have one in my town and i have to drive to KC to get it.

Question!  I have a skull silicon ice tray. Can i use that for resin?

Thanks for the Tutorial! It rocks my socks!

Go for it!
Silicone trays are sooooo good!!!
You just have to be careful moving them around when full.
But it makes everything pop out so easily.
I have silicone ice cube trays and they are my fave Grin
So jealous you have a skull one though!

So silicone trays are ok to use with resin?! WOW! I figured they wouldn't be due to the resin getting warm while it cures.

they can handle temps up to 450 in general, so resin's heat is safe

i thought the reaction or whatever made them mushy, but i was told no...so i bought a heart mold to make necklaces

MissDisney--Does that mean I can bake polyclay around resin cured pieces??  I have the temptation to try, but too scared??   Undecided 

 I cured liquid sculpey tinted with glitter, chalk, and drops of ink on a piece of glass (broken pic frame glass) using my fingers, think finger painting.  Peeled it right off after baking.  It clings real nice to the smooth backs of the cabachons.   Grin  No glue or nothing!!  But I covered the backs again with felt and scrap suede so it would not peel off.

I am not obsessed with Perty Thangs, I am disciplined...

I have alot to share, all you gotta do is ask.

 
Crochet, x-stitch, Ribbon embroidery, plastic canvas, beadwork, polymer clay, wire work, and now TATTING!!  Please help me learn to knit, then I might be complete.

you absolutely CANNOT bake cured resin (well you can, but you SHOULD NOT!! it smelled so bad after 2 minutes i took it out and it was already getting liquidy)

2 minutes is not long enough to cure raw PC, so i suggest using the method you already do..

ooh OR creating a template and putting a piece of baked clay into the resin to create a baked clay back...

It sounds like soon that we are going to need a topic, "How I blew up my oven"!  You kids are so funny.  I'm working on some extra special pieces right now...really I just cleaned up.  Maybe I'll post in a day or two.
