This was my first time doing anything like this. I didnt make to many because I didnt know what I was doing.
Im pretty happy with the way they came out. But now I know what to do better next time.
I guess I forgot to menton the fact that necklaces. This is just a picture of them before the rings and necklace part were added.
The last one I some how messed up on the varnish and now it looks wrinkly. But I guess you get the point.



I use to be with it. Then they changed what it was. Now what im with isnt it and whats it scares me.

LOVE your ideas!  I'm having a hard time finding a decent mold.  What did you use?  I've tried using ice cube trays, but my casting look like, well, ice.  Sad

I also tried the small artist's pallets, but they're too "domed"....

The candy molds I've seen at Michaels and Jo Anne's have had a really dumb smiley face in them.

I love playing with resin.  It's magic stuff, huh?

Those look fantastic.  I like the oregano - I thought of casting tea-leaves last night, so it can't be that strange.  And peppercorns might just look neat!

Anyhow.  I've been asking this of every other resin crafter on earth.  1.)  How did you polish them so nicely?  and 2.)  What kind of 'varnish' did you use to finish?

I like the domed style of paint pallettes, so that's what I use.  *grin*

If you wanted to go pricey, saffron threads would be too cool.

I have yet to try this but a lady who works with resin for living swears by rubbing it with brasso for the best polish. I don' even know if you can get brasso in America or even outside the uk.

A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart and sings it back to you when you forget the words.

I have me a wishlist thingy...see here

I've got Brasso in my cupboard now (southeast USA). Bought it a while ago, but I've been using it for years.
