RESIN!

I'm new to resin, so if the topic is old or played I apologize ahead of time.

Holy crap, its so fun and easy.  What does everyone else think about resin?  Tips, tricks, problems? Hates, loves?

Its like christmas morning every time my pendants are ready to pop outta the molds. Lol...

Your pendants are beautiful and I love resin related crafts. So far I haven't been able to get my hands on it.

Thanks for that link, lots of good information!

And haven't been able to find it, or just haven't gotten around to getting it?  I got mine at Michaels, and used a 50% off coupon.  Such a good deal!

Cheap silicone molds work great. Target always seems to have some cute ones in their $1 stuff. Ive gotten a ton from there, lightning bolts, dollar signs, pixel hearts, pickles, beer bottles, hotdogs, jsut to name the ones Ive gotten recently.

I have to return one of the two spiderweb molds i bought because it has holes in it. normally for a $1 i would just throw it out, but i'm kinda peeved at target so yea.

i did notice some stuff in the $1 section varies from target to target. I don't know if that helps. I have seen some of the molds i bought in target for $1 being sold on ebay for $5! but if you look at the tag that is still on the mold it reads $1.  If I find more i will try and pick up extras, and if anyone would like one it will only be $1 plus shipping. i'm not trying to make money just help out some fellow crafters!

Kizzie, I would gladly pay for one.  Gonna go to a different target later and see what they have.

Also, 99 cent only stores have a bunch in their kitchen section, ducks, fish, butterflies, mustaches.  And pumpkin/skulls in halloween section. 

I have no idea if people are really just using these for ice, but I love that they are so IN right now. haha.

Thats weird, my last message wasnt there.  o_O thats okay....

I went back to the SAME target, and they magically had two of the spider trays.  I bought them both.  Thanks for the heads up!

I worked for an art house where we made prototypes and custome parts and figures. If your mold does get holes or has them to begin with, just wrap the bottom and sides with duct tape, being careful not to distort the shape. On the other hand, you could distort the shape on purpose also, for other effects.

thank you for the tip! i will keep that in mind for future mold issues. these holes will effect the outcome of the piece sadly.

Your pendants all look great! They look so smooth, and pretty.  I haven't tried resin yet. I'm into so many other crafts, that I'm afraid to add another. Hubby might move me out to the barn (-;  But someday I will give it a try.
