what did you use as a form for the fruit?
Are you having to polish them after they are done?

I keep meaning to try out this project.  Yours turned out so cute!

With the tear drop where did you find the mold?
Also where do you find really good pictures ?

You can get resin molds at alpineimport.com.
Pictures?  You can use just about anything...stickers, stuff from the internet, magazines, etc. Just cover it with glue, so it won't ruin the image if it's paper.  Smiley

First of all, I would like to say that I really like your work and it's inspired me to play around a lot with resin. I've been using a product called Famowood Glaze Coat which is an epoxy product used for coating wood products-- it works great, and I never have to buff it, the fronts come out clear all the time and I barely ever have bubbles.
Anyway, my problem has been with drilling holes and connecting the beads. The first one I made was with the plastic palatte (like your circle faces bracelet). I drilled it like for jump rings, but I drilled four holes per bead and strung it together with elastic thread. The thread ended up breaking through the bead, which totally blew. Then I tried to make beads with the ice cube trays and drill behind the picture, and ended up drilling into my thumb. Do you have any recommendations or tricks for drilling? Do the jump rings break through the edges? It's just so frustrating! Anyway, thanks for posting your stuff. If you have images that show the beads from the side, and show your drilling, I'd like to see them...

Those are all incredibly amazing! I especially love the M&M bracelet. I've always wanted to try resin, and this post is very inspiring Smiley

Those are awesome!!!

Are those pictures of M&Ms or real ones?  How did you suspend them in the resin like that?

And what did you use for molds?
