Michelle Jordan

 I feel so lost... I am going to miss you so very dearly. Thank you for all the encouraging words and for believing in me and my passion for polymer clay and resin pendants & jewelry. I love you my dear friend. Rest.In.Peace.

This was one of your favorite pieces I created with polymer clay, wire, and pearl ex. You never did email your address so that I could have sent it to you. See you over the rainbow one day my friend. I love you Shellebelle. <3<3<3

Resin Snowflakes

I really love the way these turned out. I found that Facebook offers a store front. I'm hoping to get one created this weekend. I've already gotten a couple requests for these snowflakes.

***I made more of these snowflakes but with Amazing Clear Cast resin which I happen to like much better than Easy Cast or Envirotex Lite epoxy resins.  This snowflake I created using Amazing Clear Cast. I know one cannot tell the difference in the photographs between the three products, but if you were to compare the three up close you would be able to tell that Easy Cast and Envirotex Lite has a little bit of a yellow tint to the resin.

UPDATE (Thursday, June 7, 2012): I've been learning a lot about resins. I have recently learned that when buying resins that one should always check that the hardener hasn't turned yellowish. If the hardener is yellow, that means that it has been sitting on the store shelf for some time. I haven't had any issues with curing the older resins, but if you want your pieces to look perfectly clear then don't buy what's left on the shelf if there's any hint of yellow. Since learning this I have again purchased Envirotex Lite that was not yellowish. Although, I really do like the clarity of Amazing Clear Cast, I cannot use the resin any longer. I had a severe allergic reaction to it.
