  • Making resin beads?

    Has anyone on here done it? I have seen a few really lovely pendants lately on etsy and the like, how is it done, where do I get the stuff, is it easy? how safe and durable is it etc etc etc.

    I am always frustrated by the lack of new plastic/acrylic beads so if I could make something myself that would be amazing!

    I spoke to someone who had done it recently and she told me that although the resin stuff you need to do it is quite cheap to buy you need a proper workspace to do it in with expensive ventilation equipment or something. She said she had had to stop until she could afford workspace. I've never tried myself though so I may be wrong.
    I would quite like to have a go myself - good luck and let me know how it goes if you try it!
