    1. I used to make puzzle clocks. I would find a jig saw puzzle I liked, put it together and epoxy over it. Before epoxy, put the clock hands and numbers etc on them of course. You can get clock kits at most craft stores such as Hobby Lobby

  1. Do you have any info on how to make something inexpensive for elementary school art class? I would be paying out of pocket. We have aprox 311 students.

    1. Hi Diane, I’m afraid resin isn’t suitable for elementary school students. Instead, a product like Judikins Diamond glaze will get you similar results. You can use it to fill bezel pendants instead of resin. You won’t get the same domed finish (it’s flatter), but it’s safer for young children who don’t have the presence of mind to exercise safety with resin.
