These are the charms I made for the steampunk charm swap. All of my partners have received so I thought I'd post them over here. These are one of my first attempts at polymer clay and my very first at resin.







I also made this resin thingy, just messing around.



Thanks for looking!

Cool! 

Did you also try putting the resin into a raw polymer clay cell at any point to be able to use it as a temporary mold?  If so, which type of resin did you use, which brand of clay, and did you encounter any problems or different characterstics?  I think it should work, especially with the epoxies, but haven't seen anyone try it yet to my knowledge.  Lots of possibilities there though.

Wow, no I didn't try that but it seems like a great idea! Maybe I'll experiment a little next time.

These are really great! I really like the way you've used the chain in them, much more interesting than if they just had an eyelet, which was then attached to a chain. (and i adore the tiny key)
I'm also curious about what kind of resin you used, as i'm looking into trying a different kind of it soon myself.

Those charms are really cool! They'd make sweet keychains.  Grin
