Nice work. And has anyone ever told you that you look like Alice from "The L Word"? God I love that show. Anyway, keep up the good work.

Wow, truly impressive looking! Have you only gone with beads and such, or have you tried paper or fabric, and if so, how did those turn out?

I have done a few different things inside. Circuit board parts (probably my favorites), beads, keys, silk flowers, computer wires, nuts and screws (hardware), staples and tacks, nails and I even did some baseball cards. They all turned out great. The hardest ones were the baseball cards. They tend to "float" more than the rest and the edges start to saturate, but for the most part, they turned out pretty good. If you check my other posts, you can find the "computer parts coasters". Thanks for looking.

thanks foldingj!

I've got all of the stuff for this and a whole Saturday off...I feel some coasters comin' on!

wish me luck!

No problem. Make sure you post your creations so I can see how they turned out. If you need some forms, let me know. I have a few extra.

how thick are these?  did you pour them all at once, or in layers?  I just got some of this to coat some tile coasters I made, but I am intrigued by the idea of setting items inside the resin.....

These particular ones are about 1/2 inch thick. I poured them all at once. I have done others in the past with items inside that floated. With those, I had to pour a second coat on top after the first dried in order to have a smooth top. As a result, those ended up thicker, but still only about 3/4 inch thick.
15  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Han Solo Carbonite USB Flash Drive on: July 14, 2008 07:54:08 PM
I know it has been a while since I posted anything, and yes, I have been really busy. But this latest creation is just too cool not to mention. I have made my very own Han Solo in carbonite USB flash drive. I made a mold of a carbonite figure with some molding latex (i can't remember where I got it, but it is food grade, chocolate bar carbonite Han Solo anyone?)  Anyway, I made my mold, opened up a usb flash drive and inserted it into the mold. I acquired a melting pot recently and have been dying to try some utee casting. So I melted up some clear utee and a little darker utee for color (can't remember if it was hematite or something else). I melted and blended the mix, poured in the liquid and voila, instant Star Wars geekery. I tested the drive to make sure it works and it works great. And for an added bonus, the read/write light actually shines through the material. You can't see through it, but the light can shine out. Odd but a very cool unexpected bonus. I am such a geek and I am ok with that. Fire up the backpack jets, I'm outta here.

I could see doing this as an anti curtain too. Make some sort of window hanging. 

Hmmmm. That curtain idea sounds very cool. Make sure you post some pics of it if you decide to do it. I would love to see it.

Great job, it reminds me of my recon from the Challenge 23.  Don't you just love reconning items with some great imagination. Anyway, here is my link to my old post and again, great job on yours.

Hot? Not much heat. Just a little from the chemical reaction between the resin and the hardner. The paper idea may work, depending on the paper. I did some with playing cards but they didn't turn out too good. Looked like wet paper. But others I did with printed copies of baseball cards, and they turned out fine.

foldingj - hey, did you ever get any inhabitants in your house? 

Unfortunately NO. During a storm, the house was blown over and seemed to explode on impact. I haven't made another one as of yet, but I haven't rid myself of the materials yet either. I'm sure I can come up with some other crafty ideas for those parts (for I have many). Thanks again to all for looking. J

This is uber cool. I hit the "rocks" button because......well.....it does. Great job. You can make a spread for my bed any time. Keep up the good work.
