just out of curiousity, is it okay to get the resin on your fingers while working, or should you put on a pair of latex gloves or something?

it won't kill you or anything, god knows i get it all over myself, but it IS toxic, so gloves would be a good idea. i've heard that you shouldn't try to use anything to get it off except soap and water (which doesn't really work) because the combination of the resin and your cleaning solution is really really bad for your skin.  it just makes your hand sticky for a while. i usually try to touch a fluffy towel a lot, so that the fuzz will stick to my hand and make it less sticky until it dries and wears off.

How come it seems hard, but tacky/sticky when it's out of the mold? Should I leave it alone to harden more?

yes, that has happened to me...it means it hasn't totally dried yet.  You should leave it in longer, and make sure it's in a warm place.  The warmer it is, the faster it dries.  Best of luck...

Okay I'm ready to try this out! Smiley  These are just too cool.  

One question:  Has anyone tried to use organic stuff inside these?  Like dried flowers or bugs?  I'm just curious if they get preserved in the resin or fall apart.  I've seen them in something like this (see below) ... not sure if they were treated first or if the material used for these were something other than resin.  Just wondering ... ??

exposure to air and moistue is what causes decay. since the resin seals out air and moisture, it preserves what you put in it.
i knew a girl in college who had made a keychain out of a resin dipped bagel. the bagel didn't go bad, and the resin made it hard enough to be pretty effective self-defense  Grin
