I wish I knew how to knit!  Your owl hat is to-die-for super awesome (I love owls!), and the blue one just plain kicks ass. Grin  I don't wear kitty ears or dye my hair pink (absolutely NO offense intended to the 2 cuties that do!!  I think that rocks too, it's just not me...Wink ), and I still think they both rule.  Wear them with mad pride!!

Can I ask how you did the first (heart shaped) ones?  They look thin, and I'm amazed at how perfectly clear they are (i.e. there are zero bubbles!).  Very nice job!!

Wow, those are GORGEOUS!!  How big are they?  I totally agree that they look like faceted gems- that's what I thought they were and actually why I clicked on this thread.   So much cooler that they're marbles tho!  Very nice!!

Wow, and I thought our local place was expensive!!  Heehee!  Grin

1. the resin turned yellow-ish. I'm thinking this is due to some kind of contamination from the measuring cup (a pyrex that i used previously for film developing years ago, but has been washed). I also made way too much for my first trial, because I had to use the smallest unit on the cup 1/8th hahaha.

Apparently, if you make a piece that is too thick all at once (as opposed to pouring it in multiple layers) it can turn yellow.  I don't remember what is considered too thick, but I'm thinking it's over 1/4".  Might be 1/2" tho.  And since you said you made way too much (I do that all the time too- I'm always afraid I won't have enough!), I'm guessing that may have been your issue?

I'm sorry if I over-reacted, and I definitely don't think you're being rude.  I guess maybe I'm just used to some of the pretentious "my way is the right way" people I go to school with and read too much into her reply.  Cheesy  I definitely agree that it could be more discouraging to get cruddy results (I was just trying to keep it simpler...).  At any rate, I appreciate your feedback.   Wink

There's another in-between option too.  My boyfriend has a really nice Canon that's almost like a mini SLR (his is the Canon Powershot S2 1S which they don't make anymore because it's a few years old, but they still have similar, newer versions).  You can swap out lenses, but they don't make as many as the EOS line.  But you probably wouldn't NEED any more lenses- I have a Canon 20D with an upgraded lens (it has a slightly wider range than what they normally come with), and he can zoom WAY farther than I can (just using the optical, not the digital, zoom), and it has really nice macro capabilities too.  I think he paid around $400 for it.  I see that the newer ones also have RAW capturing abilities too, which is impressive.

If you do decide to go with a DSLR though, I would really highly recommend that you get a set of magnifying filters for your lens instead of getting a macro lens.  I've had a set of Hoya filters (I think they're called "close-up" filters) for almost 10 years, and I paid $11 for them and they work SUPER well for macro photos.  It's basically a set of magnifying glasses that you screw onto your lens.  Smiley

Could you post the photo to give us a better idea of what you're up against/working with?
