I have to tell you, I have been anxiously awaiting the chance to play with my new tool.... IceResin®. After seeing the demo at CHA, and after following the objectsandelements blog for so long, I felt like it was time to step up and use the real thing. This product is pretty amazing. It is a jewelers grade resin and has a crystal clear clarity when hardened. (Except, if you overwork the product, which I found at the end of one of my pours. One piece has some cloudy specs, and I think they are the striations that occur when the product is open to the air too long, and/or overstirred.)
I was a little timid with my first run, so I didn't push it too far on the doming- but I feel confident that the product does it beautifully. (Especially after seeing all of the beautiful work on http://objectsandelements.typepad.com). I'm excited and I'm going keep exploring with it. Above is a sneak peek at the pieces I am posting at twig2neststudio.etsy.com. How blessed we are to be able to create! Loving it!!!
