Resin necklaces

Found a cheap ice cube tray at The Warehouse for $2, and got creating!

I used Super Sap CCR Entropy Resin from the Fibreglass Shop.

I didn’t bother to use a wax release and just got straight to it ; ) I filled each cavity about 5mm thick with resin and let sit for an hour. Then I placed each piece onto the resin trying not to trap any bubbles. I let that cure over night.

  The following day I topped up each cavity with another 5mm of resin and let cure. 

With a twist of the tray each piece came out easily. I drilled a wee hole in the top of each piece and set them up ready for attaching the loop. I used a drop or two of resin to ‘glue’ the metal loop to each piece. 

I think they came up really nice and will definitely be making more
