I just jumped into the world of resin, too.  Your pieces turned out MUCH nicer than mine did (maybe I'll be brave and post those later).  I think the pot of gold is my favorite too.

If candy molds don't work, how about ice cube trays? I was just in Dollar Tree this morning and they have really cute heart shaped ice cube trays for Valentine Day...

I really really like the ones with the sprinkles and the purple bat!  These came out a lot nicer than my first try at resin.  I've used candy molds before, I just made sure I sprayed them first twice with mold release.

They look beautiful!  I am impressed that it is your first attempt.  Thanks for the tips and links.  I actually bought resin earlier today at Michael's (I have never tried it before) and was thinking about using candy molds, I appreciate the heads up!

wow these are so cool!  I love the pot of gold and the rose ones best, I guess I like the thin rectangle shape best for some reason!  Great job!

Thank you for all the kind comments guys  Grin

If candy molds don't work, how about ice cube trays? I was just in Dollar Tree this morning and they have really cute heart shaped ice cube trays for Valentine Day...

I've seen people use ice cube trays, I'm not sure I'd go for the hard plastic due to the depth but I got some of the silicone ones at ikea I am going to try  Cheesy

these are so great!  my resin pieces always turn out so bubbly but yours look so clear.  for a first try those are super rad, i love the foil confetti!

Mine did have a lot of tiny bubbles at the surface when I first poured the resin (ok, squirted, I used a squeeze-fine-tip type bottle) but I took a straw and blew on them a lot before I covered them and put them aside.

I just jumped into the world of resin, too.  Your pieces turned out MUCH nicer than mine did (maybe I'll be brave and post those later).  I think the pot of gold is my favorite too.

Let me know when you post yours I would love to see!

I like the star ones best too - just to be awkward  Grin

You have got to be hooked now you've made so many gorgeous shiny things  Cheesy
