Nice bright colours on these ones, they must look great even from a distance.

The resin wasn't to hard to use, the instructions were pretty clear. However, it is a lot of tedious work only because you have to make sure the resin is at a nice temperature beforehand to prevent any cloudiness in clear resin. Also, for the first 2 hours you have to check to see if there is any bubbles, and you can take a straw or lighter to get rid of them. Lastly, it it a good idea to have something to cover the pieces with the resin to prevent any lint or dirt from falling in while it cures for 24 hours. It is a lot of trial and error at first, but than it is well worth it! If you want to do earrings, I would suggest only doing a few pairs for the first time. I say this because  I decided to do 50 pairs for my first time and lost about 10 due to lint and bubbles. I hope this helps! And I hope to see any amazing projects you make with the resin! And if your more than a visual person like me, there are plenty of tutorials on YouTube that can help Smiley
