Well as most of you know, i do many crafts. And i decided after seeing all the cool things that can be made, to start on resin craft. Seems quite easy. Little did i know that when you remove your item from a silicon mould, that anything that has touched the mould is matte, not shiny.
Does this make me silly? Well at least i know now
I have an excuse, im experimenting lol.
I found tiny little chocolate moulds from a thrift store yesterday, and am absolutely chuffed. I read somewhere that vaseline can be used to line non silicon moulds, or a release spray. Do these affect the surface at all or the way the resin sets?
If anyone's wondering, i bought a two parter called Craft Smart Liquid Gloss (epoxy resin). I swear i went into two of my favourite shops, both times picking up the bottles and saying, nah, i dont really want to spend $25 today, then they sold out days later lol. I ended up going back into 3 stores before having to call up and put some aside!
I don't know of anywhere else that sells this resin that isn't online.
Now i know to put in images on the top facing up, and not on the bottom facing down so i can still have that nice glassy effect and not have the throw the darn thing away.
I'm pretty sure there was a question in there somewhere
(photos coming one day lol)
