Playing with Resin

 I have been having great fun playing with Resin, it’s a messy craft and not an economical craft.

The resin is mixed in two parts and has to be left for a few days to cure.

There are hundreds of molds out there.

This layered pyramid lamp has been my biggest piece to date, it took over a week to make as you have to wait for each layer to cure 

before you can Work on the next one. 

It has been fun, and the demolding at the end is exciting as it’s the first time you see your pieces.

I love setting the dandelion clocks in the spheres , 

Theses came about through my grandson wanting one as gear knob in his van. 

The little snails I adore, some of the shells have individual dandelion wishes set deep inside them 

The reindeer jewellery tidy I love too.

I have made so many little bits and pieces, some will go as gifts.

It has been great playing around with a new craft.

Just a selection of some of the resin things I have done .

Is there a new craft you have tried during this strange year, I would love to know.

If you have a craft blog please let me know in comments I would love some new ones to add to my side bar. 

Finally a couple of you have asked about my online shop it’s here, please pop along have a look, let me know what you think.

  1. What a fantastic selection Dawn. As always the commensurate craft professional. I've missed you!

    1. Thank you, I have been around but it’s been a year of troubles and not just the Covid kind,

  2. I'm having fun with glass fusion, I have a microwave kiln, so limited to making smaller items, like resin, until the end you can never be sure of your work.

    1. Oh I will have to have a look at that, sounds interesting.

  3. What a lovely selection. I have only dabbled with resin but it was great fun. Pongs though.
