This is my very first project making jewelry from resin. It'd be awesome if you could share some tips & tricks to improve my projects :)
I've been having an eye on some resin jewelry for a while. Recently, I have changed my job and now I'm having privileges to arrange my own working time. So here I am, doing what I've been dreaming if...making resin jewelry.
This project started about 3 weeks ago. My dad, was my tutor. He gave me a basic explanation on making molds to sanding. The next day, I was in a chemical shop, buying everything I would need to start my very first resin jewelry project!
It is very very exciting! I almost couldn't sleep at night couldn't wait till the morning came.
The first jewelry that I chose to be on my first experiment is a bangle. I have made my own bangle from a clay.
I didn't need to oven the clay. I just waited until it gets harder (took me 4 days).
As soon as my clay bangle is ready, I prepared the silicone, mix it with the catalyst and pour it on my clay model.
But you know what, I think I put too less catalyst, it's been 2 weeks now since I made this mold, and it didn't entirely dry yet!!!
But don't worry, I have made some more, and you will see that I finally made it to the resin bangle that is wearable on the next project.
STAY TUNED :)
PS: Oh, if you have some tips to help me improve, you're welcomed :)
