The point of playing with resin jewelry was to make these presents for my friend (only about a month late)... I forgot to take the photos, so they are courtesy of her. (thanks!) This was the second attempt. The first I tried to do in two batches of resin, and added the gears at the wrong juncture, so they settled out not where I placed them. I smartened up the second time around, and it took several batches. Although I still failed with the bubbles forming when I added the images/clippings. Oddly, the thinnner, postage stamps I used turned out great. I read somewhere that they require modge-podging so the colours won't run (which makes sense with ink-jet printed images), but stamps al fresco were brilliant. The glossy, thicker paper I used for the Tesla portraits wasn't as pliable, which I think was the cause of the bubbles when it tried to shift/pop out of the resin mold. Well, enough excuses. This, I think is just not one of my talents.
