  • Hello everyone

    Hi crafty people, I m so glad I ve found this forum, I was a bit stuck to be honest but now I believe I will get some useful info thanks to u all and your experience.
    I ve recently discovered the beautyful world of casting resin and I m trying to make little pendants and so on with it but there are a few things I don t understand about the resin. I ve used very smelly resin so far but I think I will get rid of it because of its fume, I really can t use it anymore in my small flat or I ll end up by having a cancer soon I suppose. I ve then ordered some easycast epoxy which is supposed to be low odour, I haven t received it yet but some of u in this forum might know how it works.
    If I don t use any pigment, how transparent is the final result? I m planning to embed small objects to make pendants and I wonder how clear this resin is and if it s true it s low odour and can be used indoor.
    Any suggestion and tip would be deeply appreciated
    Thanks in advance

                          Welcome

                          I use resin sometimes but not for jewelry I have a fume mask and stand in my kitchen with my backdoor fully open. If it was summer I would do my casting in the garden, before christmas I had to stand in the kitchen with the door open and my coat on as it was so cold

                          I haven't heard of the low odour resin but would be keen to know how you get on with it.

                          I love the finished effect of resin but wish it wasn't so bad for your health
