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
