Resin craft

first try..
bits and pieces

lots of ink...

blue and purple ink

with cut paper shapes

Me and Ashley have been experimenting with resin craft, which is really fun... you make it up as a liquid and can put pretty much anything in it to make little knickknacks like paperweights, keyrings, christmas  decs etc etc. The results can be a bit hit and miss.. the first one I made, I took out of the mould too early and hence it was a bit of a blob. The trial and error is part of its charm though, I think... Putting blobs of ink and swirling it a little seems to be one of the most successful creations. It sort of moves around by itself as the resin sets so its hard to tell exactly what it'll end up like.
