When I saw resin jewelry with dried flowers I fell in love. For about a year I was preparing myself because i was kinda afraid of the resin (fear of ruining everything). And now I've dealt with my fear ( It was so silly of me) And here are my first pendants. In clear one I'll drill a hole and hang it on a chain.



And I have a question if  someone came across this problem. When I want to put a second layer o а the resin it kinda pulls away and whatever I do it doesn't want to stay on some spots. Is it a good idea to use may be some alcohol before applying resin? I don't know how resin reacts on alcohol.

Very pretty. Afraid I can't help with the resin problem.  Maybe if you made a couple of test pieces to try the alcohol idea.

Ahhh - I have that one in my to try pile.  I am trying to think it I have had that problem with regular Envirotex, or Casting Craft, but can't remember.  I know I have not had that problem with ICE resin, or Magic Glos.  For the second pour, are you filling to dome, or just filling to cover?  Is it warm when you make your pieces too - cold temps can affect the curing and qualities of the resin.

I'm filling to cover. And temperature was like that said in instructions. I think that could be because of mold I'm using.
