I just love everything, but especially the clear bangles with the injected (?) / bleeding (?) color.  It looks very cool.

That cracks me up, it sounds so different than it looks!!!!!
 Thanks everyone!

The blue one in my avatar is my favorite too, One the darker side it looks like polished marble, and I just stare at it and wish I could recreate it deliberately. Kinda drives me nuts, actually.

I really like them all but where'd you find a mold for rings? I love rings and would like to make rings using resin. Please tell if you can, thanks!

I have a collection of cheap plastic rings to make molds from, I've never seen them for sale, someone correct me if I'm wrong? I know Cindy/Resin Obsession was telling me last year she was working on something for her shop, I think a 2 part mold, but I have no idea what happened with it.

McJulie-O, thank you! some of them are a lot of work, that makes it all worth it!  Grin

how do you go about sanding and polishing these? because i have tried sanding pieces and it just scratches them up. do you use a wet dry sandpaper?

Even tho it wouldn't be as pretty as the ring you were making I guess you could do the dome part then glue it to a ring base. Yours is prettier tho and reminds me of some that were popular back in... the 60s.

An assortment of sandpaper, up to 1200 grit, then buffing the crap out of it. I think sherri haab sells polishing compounds, but you can get pretty much the same stuff at a hardware store, with supplies for drills, etc. NOT the plastic polish Dremel makes, it turns clear plastic orange!

And polishing wheels like these  http://www.caswellplating.com/buffs/

and plenty o'time. It's great for quality pieces for galleries and shops, or gifts, but almost silly on Etsy, because people just assume everything is spray finished, and most sellers won't show the back of a piece, or the "bad" side of a bangle. And customers grow to expect it all to be the same.

Simple buffing with the compound and a fingernail buffer will remove a lot of imperfections left by molds, or scratches on the surface from scratched molds, and shine the face up without nail polish or spray that will just scratch off.
