This is truly a magical thing! I already have quite a few ideas what I can make with it, although I'm going to save this for a while since it's quite expensive (again, had to order this from eBay since it seems I can't get anything in my country!)
And these are the moulds I made. Both are stoppers for the potion bottles I made a few weeks ago.
And of course I couldn't wait to pour the resin in the moulds! Here you can see the polymer clay original and the resin ones.
The only thing I can't figure out is why the resin didn't cure clear like it did in the jars.
The skull is supposed to be as clear as the resin inside the Devil's Snare potion. Has anyone had any experience with epoxy resin and does anyone have any ideas why it cured cloudy instead of clear? I would very much appreciate any advice!
It was very difficult to photograph but still I love how this turned out! Of course this is only a temporary mould, a kind of trial and error thing. I will try to make a more decent skull once I perfect the whole procedure.
There was some leftover resin already mixed so I decided to try mixing in mica powders. It worked great! You can see the difference between the mica powder and food colouring in the right bottle.
And here is the lantern I wrote about in my last post. I bought this for 10€, which is a great deal. I've been looking for something like this for some time now. I want to do a mini scene inside although I'm not sure yet what exactly. I was thinking of putting in some floors/rug, curtain,...
I want to make this for my mum's birthday, which is in one month so I won't be able to be extremely picky now that I don't have the whole day to mess with minis. I was thinking of putting in the table I made last week and maybe some wrapped gifts on the table.... I would love to make some shabby chic style things but my mum doesn't like that style, so they will have to be either natural wood or painted dark like the table.
If anyone has any ideas please save me :)
Well, this is all for today. Hopefully I will be able to resolve the resin problems soon.
Until next time!
