So as you can see I've set everything out on a paper towel. On top of an old cookie sheet. It just makes clean-up easier. One thing to know about resin if you've never worked with it: if you don't clean it up before it hardens, it's there for good.
Today I'll be filling in some pendants, a bracelet and some bottle caps. I used regular floral cardstock for the inside spaces of the bracelet and pendants. I just traced the outline, cut it to fit and glued each piece in place.
I snagged some robot stickers this weekend and will be making these into magnets. I used my 1" circle punch on some old scrap cardstock and slapped a robot sticker to it. I then glued that to the inside of the cap. I also waited 24 hours for the glue to dry before I added the glitter inside the rim.
Since I didn't have a large amount of stuff to finish, I made a small batch of resin with my little plastic measuring cup. It was perfect. I try to arrange things close together that way I'm not dripping resin all over the place.
Very slowly I added a little bit of resin at a time. Remember, you can always add more. Trying to remove it is a pain in the ass and can get quite messy. When everything was filled with the resin, I moved the cookie sheet to the laundry room (since it's out of the way) and will let the resin sit overnight to cure. Tomorrow: adding the magnets!
