I did my first Resin pour about a month ago and I was amazed how easy it was. I chose to start with a nail polish design.
I got all set up and sat down to what I thought was going to be something hard to do. To my amazement it was super easy to do each set. I mixed my resin in a small batch. poured it into the molds so the molds were just shy of half full. Then came the fun part. I put drops of nail polish in and then poured resin over the top. super easy however… not so good since the combination of the 2 caused a few air bubbles in some pieces. So I did a few more batches and moved on to making my own mold.
wheeeee so fun!! I can mold just about anything. yippy. While it was in the mold I made a nice bottle cap piece. I have started to really work with different inclusions. The drift wood was on but it kept needing to be pushed down. The shell was easy and stayed where I placed it.
About a week ago I started to really branch out. I got some mog podge, stickers, and nail art to include in my pieces. The nail art was nice but it spread out as the resin cured and with that I learned to wait until it is really tacky before adding them if I am trying to make a pattern with them.
I have now found my newest passion. Now finding the time when I can do this is hard… Keep watching I will post more updates with new pieces as my skill increases. 🙂
