Resin Jewelry

I went to a Resin Jewelry class a few weeks ago and we had fun pouring our own molds.

We used bottle tops to set clear resin in to make fridge magnets and also mixed powdered paint in to make resin shapes of our choice. Pink of course for me. I thought the colour was a little pale so when I got home I distressed the rose with some acrylic paint and then coated in nail varnish to give a nice sheen.

I also had time to make a fossil charm which I gave the same treatment to.
I am entering this into the following

You might be just the person to help actually...I've been playing with resin on the weekend and I can't get a piece without air bubbles in it...If I tap the mould nothing happens except nasty spillage! Any tips oh Glamourous One?! I've been using Crysal Resin.

a lovely pendant, it's so pretty :)

re your sequin post... have you tried putting a piece of cotton over the top and then gently heating through with an iron, it might melt the glue enough to pull them off the fabric.
