This was my first try doing the scrabble tile pendants, and I think they turned out really well! This was also my first time ever using resin, so I was a little nervous, but it worked fine. I really love these, and I'm making a new batch this weekend.












(I forgot to get an artsy picture of this one... o.O)




DON'T LOOK PAST THIS POINT IF YOU ARE MY SWAP PARTNER!!!!!!!!!!!






Over all I really like these. I'm going to start using photos I've taken for the pictures and sell them on my etsy I think. They were really easy and fun to make.

Let me know what you think!

I really like the pineapple one. My mom always tells me that pineapples are a symbol of hospitality, so I guess wearing one would indicate you're a welcoming person? (Just some food for thought) Smiley

Lol. I really like how the pineapple one turned out too. Its for my partner for a Psych (Tv show) swap. There's a pineapple hidden somewhere in every episode, and the main character loves them. He gives them as gifts in the show. Thanks!

did you use the pour on type of resin? i have a box at home that i picked up for a similar project but i'm terrified to try it. i keep picturing it pouring over the edges, or drying weird or something, and the cure time is fairly substantial so i don't want to do it wrong...
yours turned out really pretty and professional looking!

Yeah, its basic casting resin i got at the craft store I thought the same thing, that it would run everywhere, but its actually really gel-like. I mixed it in a little cup and used a Popsicle stick to spread it around. On my first one I put too much on, and it did run over the sides, but it wasn't bad. I made sure to work on a scrap piece of wood as not to ruin anything. Mine were mostly dry by the next morning, but still soft enough to leave a nick when I pressed my nail into it by accident. I'm leaving them face up for the next few days just to make sure. I think it was because it was snowing when I did the pour in my garage, so there was a lot of moisture in the air.
