While working with resin is fun, it can be a bit inconvenient waiting on your projects to cure. Did you know you can use styrofoam boards and wax paper to make your own resin jewelry making craft surfaces?
I like to save flat styrofoam (actually hoard them like a squirrel and her nuts) and use it as a portable tray. You can generally find these in your large purchases that need a lot of packing. Hint: Medical offices that get refrigerated pharmaceutical products get a lot of these styrofoam pieces.
Tear a piece of wax paper to cover the styrofoam. Trim with scissors if necessary.
Use toothpicks to secure the wax paper to the styrofoam.
You now have a portable tray for your projects! (and pretty cheap too — if you mess it up, just throw it away and grab another)
I will pour my resin in molds, etc. on the tray, then once it is mostly cured, move it to a shelf to finish curing.
What do you do in your resin craft area?
