What the heck are they for??? magnets? pendants? I like your choice of colors, and the sparkles. What does the glaze help with? They are already shiny. Resin usually will seal itself, so I can't imagine it is for that.

These will be pendants. I glaze my pieces since most of the molds I have don't come out shiny. And it also helps hide watermarks and imperfections caused by the molds

Have you tried using a cooking spray (like PAM) on the moulds? Even the silicone ones come out good this way. And also tapping them while still curing, or using a vibrator (NO...not that kind!!!  Grin) on the counter top can release the air bubbles. The back massager ones. Hair dryers work good, too. That blisters the bubbles to the top, which is esentually the backside of the pieces. Great job! I am liking these!

one more question: you placed eye pins in. At what point in the curing process where you able to handle the resin without getting fingerprints on it but still stick an eye pin in?

i use 2 part epoxy resin, mostly enviortex lite

for the eye pins, i do that after the pieces have cured. i use a dremil and drill a pilot hole, the using pliers i set the eye pins. i use resin or e6000 to secure the pins in the piece. does that make sense?

Yes that makes perfect sense. Thanks! I've been trying to find a way to do this, i found one tutorial that gives some instructions on how to get them in during the curing process but I feel that getting a drill may be the best route.
