Keeping it Real: Project Disaster!

16 Jul

Have you ever had a project that just didn’t go right no matter what you tried? This is my life this week. I was so excited to make resin pendants. “How hard could it be?” I thought. Well, it turns out, considerably harder than I imagined. I really wanted to do this for my Creative Friday post this week. About a month ago I bought some two part expoxy for another project. Then bloggy friend of mine had a birthday coming up and I thought it would be cute to take a scrabble tile and encase it in epoxy and make it into a pendant. So Monday I made the epoxy and was so excited. Well, it turns out that the epoxy turned yellow and there were tons of bubbles. Second attempt on Tuesday, I bought resin this time and used molds instead of vitamin containers. The resin was so easy to use. There were less bubbles. Everything seemed to be going great. Well, I used Pam cooking spray to save money instead of using mold release stuff, now I cannot get the resin out of the molds. Aaaagh! I am going to get this right if it kills me! I will let you know how it goes!
Today is the third attempt. Hopefully I will get it figured out in time for tomorrow’s Creative Friday! {Any advice would be greatly appreciated!}
