I’m a new resiner and will be selling a few items at my local market. I see that allot of people have discovered the ocean and geode technique. If I am going to be selling items like this should I be worried about any copywrite infringements? I just dont want to be 5 years down the line with my creations in local shops and run into these sort of problems.

First, let me say I’m not an attorney, but here’s how I approach a situation like this.
This is *your* artistic vision. We are all inspired by many things, including seeing someone else’s work. As long as you are not selling it as ‘lookalike work of artist XYZ’, then you should be safe. Where I think you can run into problems is if you exactly recreate something another artist has trademarked or copyrighted, like a logo.
Does that help?
