Resin Day

Hey everyone. I wasn't feeling very well today so instead of making some clay pieces I'm going to share my resin pieces that I've made. I'm new to resin so they aren't that great but I'm working on it. So here you go.

This is the first piece I made. I made several mistakes with this one. I didn't measure the  resin properly so it very flimsy. I also didn't use mold release so I had a heck of a time trying to get this out of the mold. The painting is also not that great. So this one is definitely a fail.

Next I made these bottle cap charms. These were easy. I used the same resin mix as the lollipop but these are better since the are so small. I put some glitter in each of the caps and used some sticker flakes that I have several of. The bottle caps I used have holes in the top and I didn't notice that until the resin was in and I couldn't figure out why there was resin all over the place. Once I found the holes, I put some hot glue over them and put some more resin in them.
I got some silicone heart molds that I kinda went crazy with and made a few pieces using them. This was the first one. It's got some gold glitter in it and then I put a Thomas O'Malley sticker on top. The O'Malley's head kinda flopped up so it's bumpy there. I'll have to figure out how to dome and fix that.
I love this one! This is Roquefort. He has some red and gray glitter behind him. He doesn't stick up and he's completely imbedded in the resin. Success!
I have some Halloween stickers that allow you to put together a witch so I thought I'd make her and put her in a resin piece. She flopped up like O'Malley and her eye sticker isn't down all the way. I'm going to have to dome this one too. Thee is some blue and red glitter behind her so it looks purple.
Lastly, I made this lighthouse. My mom loves lighthouse so I made this for her. It's much better than the lollipop. It's solid, I used mold release, and instead of painting I put some blue and silver glitter in the resin. This is my favorite after Roquefort.
I hope you all liked taking a look at m resin collection. I'm going to make some more soon but I'm almost out of resin so I'll have to get some more. Tomorrow will be Scrapbook Day again so I'll be continuing my concert series. TTFN Ta ta for now.


  1. These are so cute! I bought resin to try to experiment with, but have yet to try it. You are much braver than me, I was going to keep it simple and try to make the bottle cap magnets. Practice makes perfect!

  2. These are so cute! I haven't tried working with resin before. I tried clay but haven't found the time yet to really focus on it. Plus, I need to buy an over toaster that's exclusively for clay use first.

    I'd like to try working with resin one day. :)
