1300 posts!

This is my 1300th blog post. How crazy is that!?  It's amazing I have had 1300 posts of something to say! That's good news. The bad news is, the resin never hardened up and I am 100% sure it's because I listened to my husband who told me a 4:1 ration would be to fill the cup up to 1/8 Dram with hardener and then pour in the Resin to 2 Drams. I don't think that was right.  I'll try to do it again, but probably not this week.




So instead I took out my beads. I am doing a barter with D'Arsie and made this lovely for her with some coffee beans and cup from Joan Miller Porcelain. I almost don't want to give it up! It's so stinkin' cute!! Perfect for any coffee lover, such as myself. I am thinking I may need to replicate it again. Maybe one for myself.

  3. Sorry for my "geekyness" but your husband math was definitely wrong. If I understand correct instead of 4:1 ratio it resulted in 16:1 ratio. Well!
    The coffee beans are wonderful. I once made some with polymer clay but to put it together with the cup in the bracelet was genius. Congrats on the 1300 post!

  5. If you poured 1/8 dram of hardner, then you would need to add resin to the 5/8 mark. You did a 15:1 ratio. I've found that the best way to get bubbles out is to use a direct flame from a lighter. Let the flame touch the bubble until it disappears. I have never heard of ecopoxy...I will have to research it to see what the difference is from ICE resin. Good luck, if you try again!

I'm sorry to have to turn on the word verification here, but I got fed up with spammers comments!
