I am redoing a couple of the hearts (stupid %@#$ sticking in @#$#% molds) after I get some supplies, and need some varnish from DH for some of my hearts.  Hoping to send early next week, but that depends on how work goes too.

Do you have a local sewing machine maintenance and supply store?  When I inherited my sewing machine, it did not have the manual and I was able to order a copy of my machine manual.  Maybe they can direct or help you out.

Here is the Kingtex contact information, maybe they can advise you:

5244  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Re: Aleene's paper glaze on: October 24, 2011 10:33:03 PM
I was intimidated by resin too and was using Diamond Glaze for items.  It did the trick, but really was not waterproof, and from what I saw from others, if you're wearing on a humid day, or if you are sweaty, or caught in a rainstorm, it will bleed through and affect the pendent eventually.

Another thing you can try may be the clear embossing powders and lightly melt them over the project with a heat gun.  Do a few layers and you could have a nice effect. 

So I started using the UV set resins like Lisa Pavelka's Magic Glos, which are no mix, and easy to use, setting under a UV light, or bright sunlight in as little as 5 minutes, and domes nicely.  Worked beautifully, and gave a nice domed, had, glossy, smooth, waterproof finish.

My first time using 2 part resin sucked, probably due to a number of factors, but it was a mess to say the least.  Anyways, I gave it a try again a couple of weeks ago, using Casting Craft, or Easy Cast, or whatever it is called in that blue box at most craft/art supply stores.  It is a 1:1 mix of the resin and hardener, and I followed the instructions to a T, doing the double mix, and timing it exactly.  That time, and every time since then it worked like a charm.  I used a lit match to wick away the bubbles, and just left well enough alone afterwards to set.  I have some ICE resin too for more clear jewelry projects in the future, but what I am saying is don't be intimidated by the resin - you may be happier with the end result and how much more durable it is.

It is a nice bracelet in general.  What about making a bead rope lariat and making the ends into sprays of 5 petal flowers so it looks like lilacs?

I was wondering about making some of my hearts into pendents or bookmarks, or magnets - I am going to leave them purely the hearts, but they do look like they should BE something, kwim?

I just PMd you.  I did send yesterday morning, thanks to DH who dropped me off at the PO before I headed downtown (did NOT want to miss my beading workshop and I was running late).

I have NO clue who I am sending too, but I hope she enjoys it, and I was late because at the last minute I decided to make a small extra and had to find a box.

5250  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: knitting stitch counters and markers (Pic chubby) on: October 21, 2011 03:11:01 AM
They are lovely.  I love the counters and think they are a great idea.  I love the style and concept of the markers, but I have to admit that I personally prefer smoother markers myself, with no points/sharp edges so as not to catch on fibres.  That's just my personal preference though.
