Hi, I have a few shrinky dinks that I would like to coat in resin, I was wondering what type of resin would work best and what technique for applying the resin should I use? I have a shrinky dink in the shape of a cow so it’s not a standard circle or square. It will be a charm, and it has a jump ring, so potentially I can dunk it in the resin and hang it from the jump ring to dry but I didnt know if it would create drips that way, or if placing on a flat surface after dipping would be better. Thank you in advance.

You will want to drip a doming resin onto the surface of your charm. The Resin Obsession crystal doming resin will work great: https://shop.resinobsession.com/collections/resin/resin-obsession-crystal-doming-resin
Because it’s thick, you can use the same technique to apply it to the surface like the domino in this tutorial: https://www.resinobsession.com/resin-tutorials/domino-resin-pendant-tutorial/
