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!

What the heck is Mod Podge?




I was asking this exact same thing when I first started embedding objects, particularly paper, inside of resin. I would see sooooo many tutorials that instructed me to use Mod Podge to seal the artwork from having the resin sink into the item and create an undesirable transparent affect among other messy outcomes...

So I was thinking...at the time...what the heck is the big deal about this stuff? When I first started with resin I went to the Texas Art Supply store to pick up some Easy Cast and saw the very retro labeled stuff on the shelf. I figured since I was planning to working on embedding some pictures of my kiddos in some cool charms, I should get some to seal the prints. I had noooo idea there were sooo many different kinds!! There is Mod Podge Classic, Hardcoat, Fabric, Outdoor, Satin, and Sparkle!

I found this site that helps outline what the difference and thought it might be helpful for you!
