I have a question have you tried real candy or anything like it?

_I am assuming the m&m's bracelet is from real m&m's?

I love your bracelets & I agree with Natural Starlet that my next paycheck will be used to buy resin.

Any tips for the m&m's one, my niece would love something with m&m's.

No, the m&m bracelet isn't from real m&m's. I tried twice using real m&m's - once I had frozen the m&m's before using - but the resin heats up a lot as it cures, part of the chemical reaction or something. So the real m&m's cracked, squished and distorted too much in the resin.   Undecided

The m&m bracelet I made is created from stickers - 99 cents for a sheet at Michael's or Wal-Mart. There are two of each color m&m on the sheet so I stick the same colors together, that way both sides of the bracelet have the m&m picture.

Hard candy might work ok in the resin, just not so much with the chocolate.

_I would have never guessed that. Why don't we have a Michael's here!

 I got tiny jello jigglers molds to put my items in, I hope that those will work. 




Where did you get the jiggler molds?

you can go onto the jello website and contact them to see if they are still around. Go to garage sales you  might find a few there but you all know garage sales are hidden gold mines.

Wow--so cool!  Yet another thing to add to my ever-growing list of crafts I want to try.  Is it hard to do?  Wait... I'll go find that other resin thread you mentioned.   Wink

Thanks! Yes, there's probably lots of info in that other thread about working with resin. It's not difficult to work with - just lots of steps in the process. I typed out some directions for a friend, if you're interested - just let me know.

 I found small bean shaped molds at the JELLO website. I found some small ice cube trays that might work too. it's too bad that garage sales are hit or miss. Thanks for the suggestions though.
