I've been trying to figure out how to make these for a long long time.  After many failed attempts, i think I finally got it.  Here are my 4 I made last week. 3 of them didn't turn out but I think they still look neat, so I'll share my pictures.  (They are really hard to photograph since they just get a real bad glare from the flash...so sorry for the bad pictures).

Here's the one that actually turned out right Smiley 




This one I just threw in...it didn't stay together obviously but I think it still looks neat


I put grass in the bottom of this one...just for fun Smiley


For this one, I ran out of dandelion puffs...I picked them all from my yard..haha...so I just put all the leftover seed in the resin.


Here's all 4 together:

I like this so much more than scary bugs encased in resin!  How do you do it so that the dandelion puff doesn't get smashed?

This is amazing.  I'm with the others.  How did you get a whole dandelion in the resin without it getting smushed or crumbling?  Great job.

You did well on all of them. I like the rest would like to know how you kept the 'poof'. If that was on my desk, I would just stare at it all day. Smiley

That is beautiful. 

I am impressed at how well you captured the essence of a dandelion.
