It seems like lately I've been prefacing every post with how busy I am, I feel bad about it! But sometimes life has a way of sneaking up on you and piling everything on at once; the last few weeks have been no exception.
I did manage to get lots of my new absolute favorite items poured, my resin torso pendants! I think these are the most unique things I've seen in a long time, hence the reason why I was so excited to get the mold and get started! I was a tad hesitant at first because as resin jewelry makers know, different molds can affect the curing process of the resin. For example, the mold I use for these torso charms is silicone (rather than the non-stick plastic of the Castin Craft/ETI molds) and will sometimes give the resin an opaque appearance. I fixed this by using a layer of Diamond Glaze over the piece which works out really well, as it brings out the sparkle and color more!
Here's a group picture of all of the pendants I've completed so far:
And my first one I'm trying out on Etsy, hopefully people like these as much as I do! I have many more ideas for colors and things to embed in this particular mold, I might just have to buy more molds to try all the ideas I have in my head; I can't wait a whole day for them to cure before wanting to try something else haha.
