Resin Update!

Can you believe I am almost out of my first can of resin??? I did a few pieces recently. I have made a few mistakes and I am going to share them with you.

1. Medical Bracelet

This bangle is super cute! And I absolutely love what I did but today I realized something. The pills are too thick so they chip off when I throw my arm around.

Solution: Thicker Mold

2. Bone En-capturing

I will master this skill I promise your butt that! A few things went wrong the the following photos of my creations.

a. moss is not dried and is dyed?

My moss affected a few of my pieces. A few of them did not cure well or as swiftly as it usually does. Also, the moss is dyed? So my pieces had a hue of light green. I should have known

Solution: Dried Moss? or stick to dried plants.

b. moss was overflowing

The moss was overflowing the back

Solution: trim?

I used these Items to attach the Bamboo fencing.

Hammer,

24 guage galvanized wire,

1″ nails

Pliers with a wire cutter

The fencing is pretty weak, and our winds are VERY strong. So I devised a great way to keep the fence upright. I take two nails, nail them about a inch to half-inch away from each other. I take the wire about 5 inches of it, and i do a twisty 8 around both of the nails. and then I individually wrap them around their own nail to keep them more sturdy.

I found this awesome piece of burlap and I thought it would be awesome to paint it and put it up in my patio.

I put the burlap on a nice area with two poster boards underneath. The paint goes directly to the paper underneath.

And here is the finished piece! I am not done with the whole patio, but I covered up the ugly part and the fence 🙂 more to come. stay updated!
