        I'd love to try resin; let me know how you get on. Also, are there any/many fumes?

          Sorry I haven't been on for a while, I have been using the Crystal Resin and there really isn't any fumes, now weather its hard to use or not is a different question, it took me while to figure out how to stop getting all the bubbles under the picture, but maybe I was just being a bit thick lol.
          Now I have figured out though I am having lots of fun with and plan to start using just that

            I love using resin, have been using it on and off for a while now. Although the brand I use doesn't 'smell' particularly toxic, I have to warn you that it does still give off fumes, so always ventilate the area as best you can, and try not to remain in the room once you are done casting. I don't use a mask at the moment, as they are quite expensive, but if you are going to be doing a lot of casting with resin, it could be worth investing.

            I am a part time resin crafter, as our house is pretty cold in winter, it makes the resin mixing and setting process harder and invariably more difficult to get good results, so right now I am trying to make as much as I can.

            I have just bought some pour on resin too, for non casting items, hoping to make some cute shallow picture pendants soon!

            Did you know you can also mix acrylic paint with resin to colour it solidly? Just a few drops is more than enough, or a little less if you want it to have a transparent look.

            Good luck and have fun with it, there are endless things you can put into resin, although pictures need to be sealed first, just use normal PVA glue for this.
