A place for me to ramble about my art and crafting exploits.

Bonus Halloween Resin

Cast your mind way back to October of 2019.  To my 13 Days of Halloween blog series.  To this blog specifically, where I made these semi-awesome resin pieces.

During the session/s that I made these pieces, I also made some other Halloween things which I just didn’t get a chance to blog about.  So here’s a bonus blog!

In the resin kit I bought myself last year there were a bunch of these Halloween themed bezels.  I filled them with UV resin, and shiny shiny glittery pieces (which I’m not very good at photographing).

I also filled a couple of teeny tiny potion bottles with layers of resin and glitter – and I managed to get most of it actually in the bottle too.

This photo is evidence that I missed when I first started.  It is also very typical of the type of mess I make whenever I work with resin.  Or do any crafting really.

I cured all the pieces with a lamp for a while, then placed them on the windowsill under a translucent tupperware box.  They fully cure that way – even if it does take a lot longer.  The tupperware is mostly for protecting the pieces from dust and cat hair.

I flipped the pendants and gave them an hour or two in the sun for the other side to fully cure.  The witch hat also had a little dip for some reason, that I topped up with resin and re-cured.  They all came out pretty well 🙂
