New moulds and techniques

This week I have tried something new with resin, a cube mould with slow cure resin. My patience was tested waiting for 3 days for it to cure!

My idea was to encase my daughters spare collectible toys into a little decoration. I knew what I wanted it to look like in my head but made a few mistakes. Mistake number 1 was I waited too long for the last layer and it has left a line. Mistake number 2 was adding glitter too soon and it sank to the bottom of the layer making the line much more prominent. Other than that I was pretty happy with it and my daughter loves it so overall lots of learning and a happy daughter!

I have also been experimenting with alcohol ink, making this pendant with blue and pearl alcohol ink.

I also made a few more heart pendants,not sure why they have all been hearts but it seems to have been the theme of my makes recently!

I have also tried a few more earrings this week and am happy as to how they have turned out.

I’m going to try again with the cube mould and see if I can do it a bit better next time and I think I will also do some more experimenting with alcohol ink. Until next time, bye for now.
