I saw that tute and bookmarked it as something to try.  Yours came out awesome.  Is that silver glitter?  I have tried them yet because I have a whole convertible set of needles so ideally I would like to make some that are larger or smaller than the ones I already have.  How hard was it?

ya know it wasnt too hard, however with the glitter, it made my resin waay too gloopy cause I think my glitter isnt fine enough so it took FOREVER to get it into the straws lol

They look good, I like the silver glitter.

What method did you use for the tips, mold or sanding?  I want to try these but I haven't worked with resin before and I don't want to buy the stuff now.  I have it saved as a project for later though.
