  1. Thank you for these great ideas. I was wondering if you could include silk flowers in a resin pendant. Do I have to seal the silk flower first? Thanks again.

    1. What about pictures in resin? I’m a beginner using resin. Also, do you need a curing lamp when using all resin?

  2. I am wanting to put ashes into one half of a locket but need some help please. I’ve never used resin before

  3. My question is where can I buy resin forms? I’ve been looking like crazy to find a small box but it needs to be the one that has the second smaller box or bowl to put down inside to create the box:bowl. I saw someone on tv showing how to make trinket bowls for rings or small jewelry.

    Also after you have dried your flowers should they be sealed as well and what do you use to seal objects?
    Thank you for the tips

  4. Hi
    I’m new to using resiñ. I want to make a bangle and place fabric inside, do need to seal the fabric? If so how is it done.

    Many thanks

  5. I’m new to resin. I’ve done a mosaic on a sheet of glass using mosaic tiles, seed glass beads, small laser cut wooden forms, crushed glass shards and small plastic jewelry beads. I have glued each piece down with E6000 glue. I want to cover the pane of glass with resin as an additional sealant, and to take the place of traditional grout. Before I actually do this, I would like to have a professional warn me if I’m likely to have any unanticipated disasters. I’m particularly concerned about the plastic beads as I believe resin may not adhere to them. Could you please let me know if you think I’ll have any issues and give me your best advice on how best to proceed? Thanks!

    1. Hi Susan, based upon what you’ve shared here, I don’t see any potential problems. To be sure though, you could create a small test mosaic piece to try first with resin.

  6. Hi, I was wondering if it is possible to pour resin into steel or bronze dies, usually used for pressing or hammering metal into? I have some great dies and would like to use resin in them, but wasn’t sure if it would work. I’m assuming I would need some kind of release agent…like used for silicon molds? Please let me know if you’ve tried anything like this or if you have link to a discussion about this. Thank you so much! Love what you do!

    1. Hi Linda, I’m afraid even with mold release, metal dies aren’t flexible enough to release cured resin.

  7. I want to use clear natural quartz points or clusters in the epoxy square molds . How do I insert and not sink but suspend in the middle.
