Little Resin Treasures

Experimenting with silicone molds, jewelry findings, polymer clay, and resin.

Clockwise from left:
• “The Studio”…also known as the dining room table.
• Cloth-lined pendant with button, needle and thread, all sealed in resin. I’m disappointed at the streaking in the fabric from the E6000 glue. I think I should have sealed the fabric with Mod Podge.
• Cloth-lined pendant sealed in resin. This fabric darkened a little under the clear resin, but the gold print and domed effect of the resin help brighten it.
• Silicone mold made from a rock, filled with clear resin and a small bit of moss embedded into it. I’m hoping this rock thing is really original…in a good way!
• Silicone mold made from an almond. Half filled with teal resin, then a tiny metal key added and filled the rest of the way with clear resin.
• Another rock mold, this one stuffed full of leaves, moss, petals, and sticks, then filled with clear resin. In theory the back and sides will be a rough, clear texture from the stone while the front is crystal clear…a window into a tiny world.

Fingers crossed! I hope these all turn out like I envision. Either way, lots of things learned this go around. Mostly that it’s easier than you think to make the stuff, harder than you think to make it good.
