I have been shopping on Etsy, and I LOVE it! There are so many talented women with great stuff!

I recently purchased an awesome resin necklace! I just got it in the mail today and I love it even more than I had hoped! It says "Nerdy" and it has real nerds inside, and glitter! How fun is that?! This is the shop http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5264823

Anyways, there are SO many awesome resin creations out there, and I was thinking of working with some. My husband said he knows how to handle it, the precautions, etc, but I am trying to figure out molds. I have no idea where to look for something I can use as a mold for them. I know there are lots of candle and soap molds, but I think lots of them are plastic, and I don't know if that will work.

Anyone who has any clue about this I'd appreciate any hints. I'm sure I'll figure it out, but I thought I'd throw it out there and see if ya'll could help!

I don't know it looks really neat though I love some of those little kawaii cupcake and the unicorn so cute. Is is like shrink plastic? because I want to get some of that . You can print off images right from your computer on to it and then bake it in the oven.

I'm pretty sure it was made with shrink plastic I want to get it for my DD.

That is really cool!

I want to buy more resin from these talented ladies, but I can only afford so much, and I think it would be fun to be able to design some myself too! I think it would make a great gift to do personalized ones with someone's name!!

Great link, thank you!!!!

I went to Micheals today, and they have resin molds!!!!! Exactly what I want, and they are only like $4. I'll be going back for them very soon

I'll be sure to share what I end up doing with them, but that project won't get started until I finish Tiffy's Halloween costume, and the latch hook pillow I'm making for my dad and stepmom, so it may be awhile! *LOL*
