So, since I’ve been trying to do more resin stuff, I may have been shopping for supplies. Here’s the haul post I promised you.
I got a big kit from Amazon that came with a LOT of stuff, and I bought loads of bits from AliExpress too – that site is dangerous.
I got the most important supply when working with resin. Resin. There’s a bunch of UV resin here, and some 2 part epoxy resin too.
The second most important supply is glitter. Obviously. This set came in the kit from Amazon. I wouldn’t buy more glitter (honest), because I have a ton already. That always stops me buying stuff. Honest.
The kit also came with a colourant set, and these cute little dried flowers.
I got a bunch of tools to make things easier.
And I expanded my collection of molds and bezels.
When I was laying things out to take pictures for the haul, I couldn’t resist having a little play.
I made this little pendant – trying out the colourants and some glitter. I like how it looks, especially when held up to the light. The gel nail polish I coated on top to try and combat the sticky resin isn’t exactly smooth though.
I also tried the little flowers. I did a clear layer, with a white layer on top. I obviously didn’t cure the clear layer enough, or didn’t spread it far enough in the mold, because there’s a little bit of leakage. I did another clear layer on top of that, but it should have been thicker. There’s a big dip. I might have a go at filing the edges down. But it’s pretty good for a first attempt.
There is another resin post coming soon. I did a lot more experiments – and I even took notes!
