    Ive tried a couple of resins.2 part is good but only when its equal 2 parts.One was a certain amount of 1 resin then a couple of drops of summit else which just didnt work.Much easier when its equal parts.

    Anyhoo, Ive tried some resin bits but they never turn out well.Im sure its me, not the product.
    Plus Id like to make pendants and there are no moulds with a hole to thread a bail through, so Ive tried drilling holes but they all go skewiff.

    Good luck, let me know if you have any success.

      I've not yet played with resin but am hoping to soon. There's some good videos on Youtube with very detailed step by steps.

      From what I have so far gathered it is very very important to get the measurements right and also to keep a close eye on the resin after you've poured it to check for bubbles and bits sticking to the surface.

      Good luck and let us know how you get on. And any tips would be much appreciated!

        This bring back memory's, my brother had a hobby set for Christmas 34 years ago and what he made then was brilliant, once he had irradicated the odd air bubble. So there is a way to do it but that was with a basic gift set. I havn't seen one in the shops but did think it would be a good kit to start off with.

          I've just come back from a course at West Dean College on resin jewellery. I had a great time but found the resin to be really smelly and very labour intensive as you have to work hard to file everything down and polish it. Having said that I made a gorgous ring which has been much admired. Unfortunately, although I've got all the stuff I need, I haven't had time to make anything since I got home.

            Hi Glitterbug
            Was it very dear to get everything you need to get started at home?

              Cost me about £50'ish I think. That was for the sillicon rubber to make molds and for the resin and catalyst. It also included a vapour/dust mask.

                  I've got the answer, BUT? :-)

                  Hi Suz, I find an article that gives the answer to your question, but I think this people are updating their website at the moment so don't know when will be published again.

                  This is the website: gemsandprettythings.com

                  You can keep checking it, perhaps it will be online soon....


                  Sorry, I thought I can help.

                      Hi,
                      sorry to raise an old topic, but I'm wondering if you could help.
                      I was at the markets in Manchester, and my girlfriend was really admiring some resin jewelery (small pendants with tiny flowers in them) and I thought a resin jewelery kit would be a lovely present for Christmas for her.
                      Do you know what I would need to get as I can't seem to find an 'all in one' kit?
                      Many thanks for your help!
                      Tom

                            Hi, I bought the book, a mould from penny-dog - looks perfect! Bought a multi-shaped mould from Ebay US. Now, all I need is the resin itself I presume.
                            I found a 'resin kit' on amazon uk by Fred Aldous which is near me in Manchester, would that be suitable? (i can't post the link).
                            Thanks
