It's hard when layering the large pieces - there was a lot of patience, and using of toothpicks and tweezers to sift and move the bubbles out, but there was still the odd one.  Making sure to do it on a warm day helps too - I am doing some resin work today, and the house temp is only 14C, and I am having a lot of trouble with microbubbles that just won't go away!

These are adorable! I gotta bust out my resin again soon! Smiley

One of the best things I found for air bubbles is to gently wave a flame above the resin, it brings the bubbles to the top and they pop. Though if you're using paper in the resin that gets iffy! I use a barbecue lighter so my fingers don't get too close.

That is what I do sometimes, but it depends on the project.  Cold weather will still make it iffy - you get the tiniest little microbubbles that will not rise.  Often I use reclaimed plastic packaging for my molds so the heat can melt the molds, and since it is primarily the CO2 that pops the bubbles, using a toothpick to guide the large ones up, or a gentle swirl to bring the bubbles to the surface, and gently breathing over the surface will do as well.  I try to do a lot of my resin work when it is warmer, like 18C or higher, but I was anxious to work on something this weekend, so I went with it.

you are too clever..

I don't work with resin (I did my MSc and PhD on this kind of materials and that is probably enough years of my life devoted to it) but it strikes me that the translucency would work if you used this idea, made a larger, thinner item, that would work as both a silhouette and as a picture, and then hang it in a window as a suncatcher. During the day you would see the silhouette but at night, when it is dark out, or against curtains, the picture would appear.

You know, I have been playing with that idea in my head for the last year or so... it just hasn't made it's way onto an actual work surface yet.  I was thinking of something like a center piece in resin to an art panel, or canvas cutaway - either with a thin layered piece of resin like this, or even resin paper.  I did do some resin paper experimentation lately, but made a critical error and it did not work out how I wanted.

On the other hand, did some other experimentation and was quite happy how it turned out!
