I used a paint palette mold, easily found in craft stores, or my online store (shameless plug)! www.karasick.com/resin
I'm adding a pic to the site, I made smaller ones, too, that I might make into earrings.  That is from the smaller version of the paint palette.
Thanks,
Jen

Wow those are some of the most beautiful resin pendants I've seen on the boards. I love how everything looks suspended wrapped in a lovely bubble. At first I thought they were glass.

I bought some resin, but haven't had the time to play with it yet.

Amazing!

What did you do to get the "soap bubbles" in the 2nd and 3rd pictures?  I really enjoy that effect.

Hi,
thanks for the question.  I just used those iridescent type fake pearls, the ones that come in bags from a craft store.  Know what I'm talking about?

i have been playing a bit with resin and am blown away by yours!  How did you get yours so bubble free?  I am really struggling with itty bitty bubbles all through mine, making it somewhat blurry.

I do know what you're talking about.  I can see it now that you tell me what they are, but before I was really stumped.  Again, great job!

The first time I tried it I used a dremel with a small drill bit.  Do you have a dremel?  If not, do you have a drill that you can use with a tiny drill bit?  If you are going to use the drill, just get it to start slowly and drill very slowly until you get it to poke through.  I will add the picture tutorial to my site with the other tutorial (www.karasick.com/resin) within a couple of days.
Let me know if you understand.

what kind of resin are you using?  I found with envirotex I had a lot of trouble, with casting craft, it worked out better.  Also, breathing on it after you pour it, helps.  You can also use a heat gun, but that's kind of overkill.
Also, make sure you're thoroughly stirring it while mixing.
Let me know your progress!

Hi,
I have been doing experimenting with the drill bits and I'm going to post some more info on my site.  If you are looking to get a dremel for this purpose, I would hold off.  I am having a rough time with it and have to do a little more work on it before I'd totally recommend using a dremel or drill. 
Are you making resin pendants?  Let me know what you're working on and I can help you find a solution Smiley

I too have been playing with resin.

thanks!

Whoa!  Those are awesome!  From paint palettes you say?  I had wanted to try out my aluminum paint palette for that very purpose...but I wasn't sure if it'd work.  Did you use a release?  And was your palette plastic?  Like, the hard white plastic most paint palettes are?  How shallow/deep were the palette dishes?  And which resin did you use?  I'm hanging on to a Castin' Craft Clear Polyester Casting Resin (and from the label it says "Ideal for larger casts") and I'm a little daunted on how to use it with icecube trays/sorbet trays/paint palettes.  Most on the measurement in mixing, really.  I've got a paint palette that's 6mm deep and 3.5cm x 2.5cm is the size of each rectangle, an icecube tray that's 3.5 cm deep and is a 4.4 x 6 cm, a plastic sorbet tray (with stars, hearts, spades, clubs, diamonds and moons) that's roughly 2cm deep though the size of each shape sort of varies, and last, another icecube tray that's the same depth as the sorbet tray and is 3.5 x 3.5cm.  The aluminum one is a dome shaped one and is rather shallow...probably slightly deeper than 6mm, but not much after that.  I don't know where to start with any of it =__="  Kudos btw, they're so pretty!
