2  Re: Resin Beginner in Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions by tinkxoxo on: April 04, 2010 11:41:24 AM
so just an update on where I'm at Ive taken the time i have free for the Easter break and decided to finally use the resin Ive bought

and added it to some rubber ice cube trays - i made sure followed the directions 100ml of resin and 35 drops of hardener and added lots of random things to the moulds as it was my first time i just wanted to see the effect - i mainly realised most things (beads etc) sank which for some reason i wasn't expecting.

i waited 24hrs although the instructions said it would harden within 3hrs and when i took the casts out although i didn't have much trouble removing them i now have a very tarnished front  Angry and i suppose i could describe the whole 'cube' as very sticky and still smelling very toxic Huh

i just thought id give you all an update on how i was progressing seems as you've all be so helpful and i hope to get used to this resin thing soon and I'm planning on buying a one of the more popular brands when i get the hang of it.

3  My first ever tote bag =D in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by tinkxoxo on: February 21, 2010 01:43:15 AM
So this is the first thing I have ever made without giving up half way through! and Im quite proud of how it turned out  Grin Im planning on making 13 of these bags as a part of a surprise so 1 down 12 to go!

This is the outside of the bag Ive chosen these colours because there going to be used in autumn so I thought it would go well with the season.

We are off to Disneyland Paris hence the Mickey logo - I just printed a picture from the web and made a stencil out of card then cut the felt that way.

This is the inside of the bag I know its a little untidy around the edges but i hope to get better as i go.

The only issues I really had whilst making this was the top of the bag I didnt want to sew it as you would see the stitching so I used a thing called wonder web its used for hemming trousers etc, it worked really well.

So thats my first bag =D I just wanted to take the time to show you what my dad and I (yes he helped and I think he enjoyed it more than me!) spent my Saturday night doing! and to thank you all for the inspiration to get started!
