Silicone Resin Ring Molds are here! Want to be one of the first to have one?

Finally! The first of the bubble ring molds are here! Would you like to be one of the first to have one? You can find a couple on Etsy and a couple on eBay under the ResinObsession name.

They may be a little tricky to begin with but I think they will be well worth the effort. You will want to warm the molds slightly, a heat gun, microwave or toaster oven will do. Squeeze the molds when filling to give you a little wider opening. Once filled about half way, roll the resin around to avoid trapping any air bubbles. You can use craft stick or a pair of tweezers that opens when pinched to make the opening wider when filling with resin. Once filled to the top lay a piece of glass over the top, this way when the resin has cured you can just snap off the flashing. Or if you prefer once the casting has cured and there is an indentation from the shrinkage add a little bit of resin to fill in so you don't have to do any sanding.

The red and pink rings in the photos are samples.

I hope you have fun with the molds. There are more to come!

    I am absolutely inspired by this. I just ran across it as I was googling resin tutorials and the like. I've not even dipped my toe into the resin world, and after seeing your blog, I'm ready to cannon ball in! My dream is to support myself through art, and jewelry making is one of my passions. I'm only 22 and I'm a little skepitcal about turning this into a full time job. (Let me tell you, I'm up to HERE with retail/the corporate world!) ...I think I just need a little boost from someone who really does live off their art. I mean, is this really probable? Should I look into starting small, like Etsy or a website? Sometimes I get discouraged when I find very similar items that I've mad or ideas I've had on Etsy. These are just some of the things I've been questioning and wondering about. I'd love to hear from you, and learn about how you got started and where it has taken you thus far. It's so exciting to know that fellow artists who are on the same path have succeeded! Hopefully you can find a moment to drop me a line. If not, I'll continue to follow your blog. From one artsy fartsy to another! :)
