Good info! I have only used the polyester and I have had to work outside on my table or right by my kitchen window. I hope I don't grow gills from this stuff!  Tongue
Hehehe!  Tongue
I doubt you'll grow gills if you are using it outside!

Keep up the good work Smiley

 Thanks so much to you guys...When I do some opaque pieces I will post them.

I love those blueparkart and RoxNGemz.

I have a question though. When you are embedding heavier objects like the buttons and such, do you have to pour a clear layer, then let it set before adding the objects or can you just do it in one go? Will the objects sink and then not be properly covered by the resin?

I have a resin set sitting in my cupboard waiting for me to use it, but I'm a little nervous!


I have decided that the hokey pokey is what it's all about.

Hey! I havent been on here in awhile, YES you do need to pour a clear layer because the heavy object will sink down in the resin and part will stick out.
