I think my mold has an imperfection, I’m getting a little ‘divot’ in the top edge of my bracelets. How can I repair these? Can I apply a bit of resin just to fill the divot? What’s the best way to do this?

Yes, dotting in a bit of resin and smoothing it out as necessary will correct the divot.

So, i tried filling in – the divots were at the edge of the bracelet, and even though I let the resin thicken somewhat, it dripped down the sides of the bracelet. Can I just sand off the drips and polish? Will I be able to keep the bracelet glossy? (These are my very first resin projects, btw!) aside from the divots, they looked great, but now they’re all covered with drips!

I had to sand a bracelet after repairing a ‘divot’ – the resin propped over the bracelet so I had to sand it away. I used papers from 400 to 1500’and then the novus Polish, but it’s still not as shiny as it was originally. I rubbed olive oil onto the surface – that improved it some – but I can’t seem to get back to that wonderful,high shine! Also, is it me, or is the sanding a long process? I seemed to be at it for hours! Is it possible I didn’t buff enough with the Novus, or didn’t use enough? The finishing seems like a long, painstaking process. Am I doing something wrong, or does is it generally so labor-intensive? Also, somebody recommended diamond glaze. Will this help to restore the shine? Thanks!

Hi Tereze, I see you have this going on another thread as well. I think there are some good answers over there.
