Crafting to keep insanity at bay.

I am so glad I found this forum because I seriously need to vent after the botch-job I did on my latest project  Angry

I got an idea to use resin to create a mosaic suncatcher type thing out of broken pieces of glass and a picture frame. I hot glued the glass to the frame thinking that that should be enough to seal the resin from seaping through any gap....uh apparently not.

I just tried laying down a layer of resin and it leaked almost immediately. I had probably a good 1/4 to a 1/3 of a cup of resin literally leaking all over my work table (thank god i put down some wax paper to work on beforehand). On top of this I just ran out of rubber gloves so I was working with just one glove.

I managed to salvage the resin by pouring the resin that I poured on the glass back into the cup (for the most part) and then poured out a whole tray of molds. Of course I wasn't prepared for that so I just put random crap in the molds and now I feel like I wasted so much resin!!!!!!!!

 Cry My boyfriend says that's how you learn, and I know he's right but it doesn't make me feel any better. The only thing I can hope for now is that the resin turns out correctly (non-tacky, etc) and that there's at least one or two decent pieces out of all the crap I threw in there.


Ok, end rant.
