I don't think even dead and in a bunch of resin that I would ever wear that as a ring, it makes me nervous just thinking about it! But it's a pretty awesome idea and would look so cool with different kind of bugs too! Awesomesauce! Smiley

can you post up instructions or where you found instructions for resin work?

Thanks guys!
Yea I was totally creeped out the whole time. It was ridiculous.
My boyfriend cant even look at the ring with out getting the chills. lol

As for instructions I just mixed my resin, poured it into a mold, placed the spider in and positioned it the way I wanted with tweezers, used a blow dryer to get the air bubbles out, waited a few days for the resin to completely dry, then painted the back with a gloss paint, and then attached the ring. it was pretty simple.

The most precious thing one can make is a friend.

I am absolutely terrified of spiders, but I think this ring is amazing! I'm not sure I would have the guts to pick it up (even dead) and put it in resin (even with tweezers) ... and I would never be able to muster the courage to wear it!
