Ok, so after many years of owning the stuff to attempt resin I finally got around to mixing some up. I don't know why, but I was expecting a horrible smell and some smoke even though I was outside  Roll Eyes I didn't smell a thing and it was a really hot day so they even cured pretty quickly (ten hours instead of 24) I did have to use the freezer method and there were some mess ups, But for a first attempt I am going to call it a success! Here are the photos  you have been waiting for.

In the mold, yep it looks like a mess but I did it all outside so there was little clean up. I thought I would not have enough resin but I even managed to have some extra  Undecided

Just a little bubble.

My two favorites in the mold.

And ten hours later...
The ones that survived that I liked (they all came out of the molds)

Some of my favorites, air bubbles and all.

This one has glitter on/in the back.

I was afraid they would not come out clear because one of my bottles of the resin stuff (I think the catalyst side, I am not sure, it is an equal part epoxy mixture) was yellow and I thought it was from how old the bottles were. But they came out clear as ever! The mixture cleared up as I was stirring it. So Just dive in, the resin is fun XD

I am not quite sure what I am going to do with these just yet, but I have seen some amazing stuff around here.

Really Cute!!! I super duper want to try resin.  I think my favourite is the one with purple buttons and sparkles on the back.

That is what craftster is all about! Sharing! I seriously thought there was going to be problems, but now that I have done one round, I am ready to do a few more. To bad they take so long to cure Sad

I made some magnets with Starbucks frappucino lids and resin on a hot day a couple weeks ago and they cured strangely.  Tongue I'll have to put the pictures up soon. I like your stuff too.  Smiley

Resin is my next venture, i swear. It seems super hard to master. I love the heart with green buttons. These will make gorgeous pendants.

hooks for hands.
