I made my second batch of resin stuff plus a bunch of other pendants for sale at a recent pug event.  It was a great success!  I sold all the pug pieces and donated 50% of my sales to PUG RESCUE!  I had lots of fun and will be making more for the next pug event (Pugtacular in N.California) in December. 

Let me know your thoughts or if you see things I could do differently or try.  Thanks!

Pug pendants - my dog Ruby (with the red heart) & our baby Java (who passed away 2 years ago...we miss her)


Dog Tags for People:




Skulls in Hex Nuts (I ended up making Suncatchers out of them)

This is a Boston Terrier and it is from an original art piece that I created:


Resin - thanks Photochickskds - I saw your pieces with text and it gave me the idea.  Hope you don't mind...




Ruby in resin - some image bleeding...annoying!  Can't figure out if it is best to use photo paper or regular paper with my ink jet printer.  I used Modge Podge too and it still bled.

aDORable!  For the bleeding, encase the image in packing tape, it will take care of it.  I love the boston terrier..my nephew has the tiniest one named Baxter.  He lives in SanFran and is a hit at the doggy park. Everyone looks out for him 'cause he's so little.

My faves are the "dog tags for people" and the text.

Have your tried spraying with "fixativ" I think it's a Krylon product. I think if you seal the back first. Dry. Then the front. Maybe twice w/ the edges too. Let me know how it works.

Good tip - I'll try that!

I did great - thanks!  I was happy to have sold about $280 worth of stuff with 50% of that going to Pug Savers Pug Rescue.

I cut image to fit and then glue on.  Top with Diamond Glaze.  But to be honest, I am not loving Diamond Glaze.  I don't think it is that durable.  I am going to try pour-on resin next time.
