I am making some bangles with sprinkles. The sprinkles keep sinking to the bottom of the bangle. I watched your button bangle tutorial and considered casting the resin in layers, but it causes lines where each new layer of sprinkles goes. I have been jam packing the sprinkles into the mold, but love the idea of making a bracelet with fewer and seeing them suspended – having the bracelet less dense. Any ideas?
Thanks! I originally attempted to pour before it cured, but found it went from liquid to solid behind my back. I checked it every 15 minutes and missed my window. Is there any gauge on how to get the best gooey consistency with your jewlery resin?
Hmm. There’s no easy answer here. In general, once it starts to gel, you should check it every five minutes or so to see if it’s at the gooey stage you want. I would expect that to occur sometime within the first 90 minutes after it gels.
