So what?

This is my blog where I showcase my handmade resin jewelry pieces and offer information and tips on great ways to work with resin. Please feel free to email me if you have questions!

Why Resin Chica? My absolute favorite material to work with is Resin because it is beautifully transparent, gets fussy when not taken good care of, particular, can be molded and changed to adapt, and will stubbornly stay put until it gets it's way. Only certain people can work well with Resin. I am Resin Chica. (Yes I am also Free2bMommy) Resin Chica is my Sasha Fierce!

whats your poison??!!

My resin of choice is the easiest one to use and I lub it! I use the Easy Cast Clear Casting Epoxy. I personally do not even think that it has a bad smell and It is super easy to work with. I strongly suggest you buy a small 8oz and see how you work with it first. My first bottle was a total waste! I used waaay to much and ended up throwing away mixed resin that I was not prepared to cast with! Bummer! It's okay and it takes practice. So you must be prepared to try a couple of batches for experimentation purpose and if they end up coming out good, then great! You can find the epoxy at your local crafy store.

Please make sure to read the directions, and you really want to follow the timing suggested as well. This substance is great to work with, but you need to follow the instructions to get it right. Check it out!
