This question comes from Joyce:
When and how do you join two resin pieces together to make 1 piece? I would like to insert a mortal piece I have made with a loop.

You will want to make sure your two parts come together snugly. Sand as necessary to make that happen. You can then use some mixed resin as a glue to keep the two parts together.
I like to use a five minute epoxy for this purpose.

How would you join two flat backed resin pieces to make a 3d piece?

Same way as I talk about above. Use some mixed resin to glue the two pieces together.

Hi, I would like to make a piece using multiple pieces, but I am concerned the joining will be seen, can you see it when you join the pieces if you use sand and additional resin?

Hi there, I’m making a resin chess set & have come to the bit attatching the pieces together. Can you please tell me the best way to do it. I see you need to sand them to make snug fit but now do I glue them or resin them & what sand paper grade is best or which glue is best.

To glue them together, E6000 is what I like to use. You can find it in our store here: https://shop.resinobsession.com/products/e-6000-epoxy-jewelry-adhesive
As for how to sand the resin, this article explains more: https://www.resinobsession.com/resin-frequently-asked-questions/how-to-sand-resin-smooth/

if I use the same type of resin used to make the two pieces to join them, will it be a strong bond or will it come apart easily?

It should be a strong bond.
