Playing with Epoxy Resin and Blog Candy



I've been having lots of fun trying out a new technique using 2 part epoxy resin and some vintage jewelry pieces. This stuff is so cool. It stays crystal clear no matter how deep it is. Its called Water clear. But warning... do follow ALL directions if you decide to try it out. Its very toxic and can cause serious health problems. I've tried lots of others and haven't had the same results as this.
Don't you think its time for a Giveaway?
I'll be putting together some jewelry pieces to go on my Etsy site but will also be giving away some of these as blog candy. I hope to have my giveaway posted on Thursday so come back and sign up and see what I'm offering.

I'm assuming these pieces are for Etsy? They're so lovely, Lynn! Lovers of the vintage should go nuts for these.

Lynn -

These are just gorgeous! They really came out lovely. I have been dying to try Resins (the two part kind, not UTEE), but have been worried about trying it. I have developed a real sensitivity to smells and if strong, I start coughing. How strong is the odor when using this?
I think you have done an outstanding job with these, they are just so clear, like glass!

These are just amazing Lynn! I have never had much success with resin - always seems clouding with tiny bubbles - but I am going to give this a try. Thank you for the info
