I have been watching tutorials for resin and gathering the tools and supplies for a little while now. In the was week I have finally made a couple batches of mostly little gem shapes. It has been interesting. I am probably a bit more precautions that most would think is necessary. Can you say respirator?
At first I was relatively happy with the results of both batches. The first had a couple issues that I tried to adjust for. The second batch seemed nearly perfect. Until I took them to the farmers' market to show my friend who works there. They were bendy!!!! They are not supposed to be bendy.
I have already determined three possible reasons for these results. So I will be trying to eliminate them one at a time to see what the problem was. There is also the fact that the heat index was over a hundred. Welcome to south Texas. Bring a fan and a lot of water.
But I still have some fantastic pictures of my gem creations and another batch curing as I type. Here is the shot I shared on Instagram. Good news is they seem far less bendy now that they are back in the AC.
Well I am off now. I want to get some studying in.
