WOYWW: Short, Sweet & Silent!

Howdy friends! It is Wednesday (OK Tuesday night in the USA!) and time for What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday! It is also the first day of school so I will have hours of uninterrupted creative time in my studio! woohoo! Of course I shouldn’t say that out loud or I might jinx myself hahaha! So yesterday I glued bails on some of the sea glass embedded pendents that I made. I rolled up some old book pages in some too, it is fun to see what words are prominent in the pendants, the pages came from old Edger Allen Poe books! I did some wire wrapping on some when I thought a regular bail was too boring.

Yep, a big mess! I hope to get more resin poured today, I wanted to try embedding fibers, buttons, glitter and letter beads in some pendants. I hope it turns out to be a sunny, dry day so I can cure some resin outside. I found that putting it in bright hot sun with a clear Rubbermaid tote over it for a dome works really well. I think it traps the heat and helps it cure. Plus I can keep most of the stink outside! That’s it for me today, thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!

  2. Beautiful jewellery and so many pieces to show. Love the colours as well, green seems to be a common theme this week as my desk is covered with it.

    1. If it is warm enough and dry enough in my studio I could do it there but it is too stinky to cure in the living areas of my house. I live in Maine and it is warm enough to cure resin outside in the summer/early fall and that is it, it is too cold in my studio the rest of the year. I have to wait if the weather is not right so I work in big batches when the weather is good, gotta make resin when the sun shines!

  6. What an creative desk! I have wire and stuff but haven’t played much. And I have a resin kit that has not yet been opened. Bad me! Enjoy your free time! Happy WOYWW!

  7. DO NOT talk to me about stink πŸ™‚ They are mucking the fields all around us and the smell is not to be believed. Looking forward to seeing your pieces. Funny, it seems such a short time ago you said you were “scared” of resin, and look how you have embraced it. Well done πŸ™‚

    Happy WOYWW!

    1. i am using Crafting Cast polyester Resin. I used a 50% off coupon on a quart at ACmoore so it is a good value. I think the epoxy resin is a little more user friendly but it was sold out when I went last week so I bought another big jug of polyester. I like it and it seems to be cheaper than the other stuff. The only downside for small castings it takes forever to fully cure and not be tacky, it need external heat to cure (a warm room, hot sunny day etc.) if it is small because it does not make as much reaction and heat as a larger casting. Fun to experiment tho!

  8. School started here today too, only I work at it so no free time for crafting. Amazingly there is free time to blog hop though. Totally weird. I love all your pendants and goodies out to play.
