This question comes through email by Kelly:
I had a look in your FAQ section and could not find an answer.
I am starting at trying to make some dried flower resin jewellery.
I have no experience with this what so over and was hoping you could help me out.
I wish to make globe style jewellery and was wondering which is the best type of resin/method to do this and are all types of resins safe for jewellery (for example should a wear a mask while mixing and is it safe to wear on skin) Thank you

Here is a link to several posts on our blog that I did at the beginning of the year about using dried flowers in resin: https://www.resinobsession.com/tag/drying-flowers
To make a globe, I would recommend one of our sphere molds. You can find them here: http://shop.resinobsession.com/search?type=product&q=sphere You can see how to use the mold in this video on our you tube channel: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XNSvffZ-il4
As for the resin choice, I would recommend the Resin Obsession super clear resin. http://shop.resinobsession.com/collections/resin/products/resin-obsession-super-clear-resin-6-oz-kit-jewelry-quality-resin It is a jewelry quality, clear resin that mixes in a thin viscosity. This thinness makes it ideal for molds as it makes bubbles much less likely. As for the safety, at a minimum, I recommend gloves and sufficient ventilation. Here are some other blog posts that talk about safety as well: https://www.resinobsession.com/tag/safety Once you have decided on a resin, read the SDS information for that product. There will be specific recommendations for safety, such as whether or not you need to use a respirator. Once the resin is properly cured, it is safe to come in contact with skin.
