Fun with Resin

I've been playing around with resin in premade bezel cup pendants for a while now. After finding some neat stickers and buttons at Michaels, I thought it would be fun to play around with embedding items in resin. My first batch didn't turn out that great as I was going too fast and overfilled the molds but this batch came out much better! I made the top duckie pendant for Jeff's cousin. She is pregnant with her first child - a boy due in October. I couldn't pass up the ice cream cone buttons when I saw them - perfect for summer! The butterfly is for a friend of mine that has a strong belief in rebirth and all that the butterfly represents and the flag was fun for July 4th. I'm getting addicted to these - I'm on the hunt for more cute things to embed! I found some cute Japanese charms that I can't wait to play with! What new projects/mediums are you working with?

Cheers,

These are fantastic!!! Is the resin hard to work with?? Love how you thoughtfully made them for others... with their tastes in mind. Will you sell them evetually??
**I have not seen any Egyptian papers in scrapbooking but maybe you can find an old/new book, maps, or even travel phamplets and use them??
Can't wait to see what you create!!
