Resin Paper


I get so excited about resin. While I was pouring the little house charms, the resin was getting hot and very thick, but I had too much left to just throw away and waste. I quickly severed some pages from a dictionary, slapped some packing tape on the back and scraped out what was left of the resin and frosted the dictionary paper. it cured nice and thick and will look great as panels in bracelets. This would be great for so many things!
BIG RESIN TIP FROM STEPHANIE LEE---STIR TWICE AS LONG AS THE PACKAGE DIRECTIONS SUGGEST.
I did this for the last pour and the resin was PERFECT! It set up much more quickly. I stirred the Envirotex that I get at Michael's for 4 minutes!
Ta-da!
