* more resin

Posted on April 11th, 2008 by maitreya. Filed under Fun with Lab Supplies, Jewelry, Resin.

I’m moving to Seattle in a month, so one of the many things on the todo list is to use up all my unshippable resin. What a good idea for a craft night. :) Besides these ones, we also embedded buttons and coins, and I played around with layering colors with only slightly better results than last time. I’m mainly having trouble getting a flat first layer. Anyway, these are my favorites from the night:

My friend Matt embedded some bits from a circuit board. I like the LEDs best.


Another great model railroad figure one made by my friend Dannie. I love the composition.


Creepy little Mizna Wada girls from some stationery.


I really like these, colored with pastels and molded with a 96-well plate (finally found one flexible enough!) I have plans for necklaces and rings with these, if I can ever find any ring blanks I like.


These are some silver findings from a bead store. They have little holes on each side, which are too small for the resin to leak from; I didn’t think to put a headpin through the hole until I’d already poured in the resin. :P

    You did some nice new stuff!
    I wanted to let you know that apparently you can use a hot-tool for woodburning to drill the resin. I will put other interesting videos about resin in my blog.
    Go and see the video I added in my blog so far here:
