I've been playing with resin a lot lately, and with mixing in other things. I found that if you mix acrylic glow in the dark paint into it, it'll glow and the paint won't wear off. Cheesy And that makes me happy!
So I made glow in the dark earrings and a ring. Cheesy




Things just sort of went from there...






The sprinkles heart is actually a pin now, and being worn by one of my friends.

Then I wanted to try some wire work.



Originally, it was going to be a necklace pendant, but I wasn't entirely happy with the outcome (the beads were taken from a few wine markers that weren't being used ^.^) so I put it onto a keychain.



Then tonight, while I should've been sleeping, earrings happened. I just can't take a break from crafting!




The beads were made from polymer clay. They were strung onto 20g wire, then the end of the wire was wrapped into a spiral and the feathers were glued into it. I'm still just "eh" on them, but that's what crafting is all about, right? Cheesy

Thanks for letting me share!

I do love those sprinkles ones. I just want to touch them. Although I also like your polymer clay beads too.

Your resin stuff is so gorgeous! I cannot get anything to come out that nice. The last day I used resin was the day I got it in my hair. Love the glitter and the paint mixing is genius!

Thanks everyone!

I do love those sprinkles ones. I just want to touch them. Although I also like your polymer clay beads too.

Thank you! I tried a new technique last night to try and make the polymer clay look like turquoise. It was messy, and I still need some practice to get it just right, but it'll definitely be something I try again.

I really liked all these. They looked like a lot of fun to make!

It really was a blast! I have way too much fun with it, especially the earrings. My ears are 00g, so I need special retainers to wear them. Sad

Your resin stuff is so gorgeous! I cannot get anything to come out that nice. The last day I used resin was the day I got it in my hair. Love the glitter and the paint mixing is genius!

Thank you! It took some practice, and I'm still experimenting with ratios (if you use too much paint, it won't set right), but I think it's all going in the right direction. You should give it a try again!

Oooh Ooh I love your rings!  Me want!

Haha thanks! My husband HATES the rings! He says it's like I'm wearing a Chiclet (sp? That square gum.) on my finger lol.

You may be so-so on those feather earrings, but I think they are to die for.  The resins are terrific too!
