I made these for the easy peasy Halloween swap.

this one is a necklace, I found the hornet dead, I didnt kill him!



and this one is is a pin

also this one isn't jewelry but I made it to use for a jewelry catch all. The resin was a beast with this one!

LOVE the hornet!

Is that hard to do?  I've thought about it with beetles, but am worried about the bug floating up and sitting on top of the resin.  Any tips?

Ohh I have tons of hornets I collected in my parents basement (they got in somehow and all died  Undecided). I've been planning on putting them in resin but wasn't sure how they'd look and haven't gotten around to it. I love it!! Great job!

basically what I did with the hornet, (and a few other bugs, I should post them here as well just so you can see them) is pour a thin layer of clear resin, waited about 1/2 hour so it was semi thick, put in the bug then covered the majority of the bug with clear, then let that cure for a couple hours then poured the colored back, if I had a side shot of it its clear for the top part then colored for the rest.

My son collected lots of buggies and is making necklaces for his class for halloween! But the resin stays tacky on the back? Do you use hardener or cover the back with something?

when I don't get the mix just right it causes the back to stay tacky. When that happens I just inmold them, turn them upside down and spray them with a sealer, this stuff to be exact: http://www.skylighter.com/images/newsletter/122/treating-screen-frames.jpg
