11  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Re: The random RESIN question thread! on: April 19, 2010 08:43:47 AM
Lookin to get a little help, tried searching this topic but was very overwhelmed trying to find an answer Smiley

Basically what I"m trying to do is put an image or sicker at the forefront of the mold, then glitter or candy behind it.  Candy background I really dont have an issue.  I do have an issue with glitter.  I have tried layering but the issue I have is the glitter rolls around and then i basically have glitter spots throughout the back of the piece making it look untidy and unprofessional.  

How do you guys do it? Do you mix glitter with the resin in a cup instead of putting the glitter directly into the mold?  Layering simply just isnt working with the glitter directly in the molds.

Also, does anyone have any good places to buy blanks for necklaces and rings? seems like they're pretty expensive, all the sites i've found sell for 1-2 dollars each Sad

I mix it in 2 layers. 1st the layer with the sticker then the layer with the glitter. I mix the glitter with the resin and catalyst in a cup then pour it into the mold.

I also have purchased many supplies via etsy. I just do a search under supplies and compare.

Someone asked about bubbles.... After the resin is poured I blow on the resin through a straw as the resin cures. Essentially I'm blowing out the bubbles as they appear.  That gets rid of my bubbles.

ammasmama - your hearts look just like red glittery roses I made! Fabulous!  Grin

I just started my last one. I will send next week for sure; hopefully Monday.  I had a random unexplained seizure last Halloween so I'm not allowed to drive for 6 months; it's the  law.  Roll Eyes  So I'm sending the envelopes with my husband. They will be done and packed up ready to go by tomorrow evening.  Cheesy

Back to knotting.......   Wink

I have crafter's cramp!!! My fingers just don't want to work, every bracelet since the 4th just keeps getting wider and wider for on reason at all. I only have 2 more to make and they are taking forever!

I hear ya!  I can only work on them in small doses because of my @!#&^%^%# arthritis.  Angry

One of mine is 8 colors and 16 strands! It is taking me forever but it is SO freakin gorgeous.... I just hope my partner things so.  Undecided

In other friendship bracelet related news.... I was watching VH1's Celebrity Fit Club the other day (I am the queen of bad TV) and one of the participants, Jay McCarroll (the winner of the 1st Project Runway) was wearing a fairly wide friendship bracelet in a simple chevron pattern. You know that THAT means.... friendship bracelets are "in" with fashionistas!  Grin Or Jay has a crafty friend...   Wink

I think you should glitter random "hairs" for highlights!

I know you're an expert in aquatic knots.

I was on both the sailing team and synchronized swimming team in college so I can tie ropes and myself into many complicated knots.

I'm not sure this comment is appropriate for a Kid-Friendly website like this one...
