I tried a few times, and made a big mess out of it :) These frogs were actually made using polymer clay and resin. I'm sure you'll find a talented glass artist that makes jelly fish!

very cute! Do you make them from clay?
Reply
:iconcaterpillararts:

Yup, I hand sculpt the frogs out of polymer clay and then paint them with acrylics. The top of the leaf/frog is coated with a thin layer of resin. :)

ah i was going to say the glossy look gives it a great feel since those frogs are in such a moist environment and always look a little glossy anyway. Plus it makes your medium look different since it's not just a flat matte texture. Definitely a good move with the resin :)

I can't wait until I run out of my current stock of resin; I'd like to try a jewelry grade one so that I don't have to recoat pieces with UV resistant gloss after it cures. I had been toying with the idea of scrapping the resin layer altogether because of how much time it adds, but the extra depth/shine it gives the pendants looks so much better in person than thick layers of Varathane.

I would keep the resin idea for sure, the gloss (and i'm sure it makes it stronger as well) gives it way more depth and makes it look more like jewelry. I have some i have yet to play with and really need to try it soon. I have an insane idea that i'm still figuring out and sculpting that will involve the resin I got but it'll be a fairly large piece and i've never used clear resin before! I should try making a few little pendant type things first probably before i just jump into my big cast lol

I have quite a few resin project ideas jotted down, but I'm still learning the differences between resins/epoxys and when to use each type of resin. What I wish I would have known when I did the first few pendants is that you can contain the resin with clear packing tape :) Good luck on the big project!

really?? That must just be for small projects though? Supposedly too much resin at once makes it super heat and will melt things like plastic and can even shatter glass sometimes. I need to make a rectangular mini aquarium with it so i've been trying to figure out if i should just use a thick glass and fill it with the resin like water or if i should make a wood box and pour it in so it's the whole thing("walls" and all).
