I've been admiring some resin pieces via pinterest, and couldn't wait to try it. I used 2 part mix, and had a little trouble. First, I didn't realize there was such a thing as "mold release", and I used the wrong molds. So I broke a couple of my pieces in attempts to get them free! But, you learn from your mistakes! Here are my pieces that made it out alive!

I like.  My daughter would totally steal that Hello Kitty piece from you; you got just the right color pink glitter. Smiley  I just recently found this blog: http://resincrafts.blogspot.com and it is making me want to get my resin molds out to play with!

Love the JAck Skellington one.  I don't use mold release a lot of the time.  I do save things like the plastic covers from packaging and use them as molds so if they don't release well, I can just tear them off too.  There's a huge resin thread in the discussion thread too.  I love it, it is so addictive!

If anyone is swapping with me & happens to see any of the Pickup Trucks Forever stamps on their mail - please pop them in the package for me - my hubby would love them!  Huge pre-emptive thanks
