More Resin Experiments!

After my first resin experiments I visited Tiranti's Sculpture Supplies on Warren Street (London). Here I picked up some silicone to make moulds with, and some more clear resin. I had found that the cheaper craft resin I was using initially goes cloudy when set in a silicone mould, weird. This new resin does not do this, however I am still not getting a totally smooth effect on the outside of the wee gems. Also I think i have had problems due to adding too much catalyst to the resin, which is making strange patterns on the surface. I am next going to try some polypropylene moulds which i found online, these promise to have good results, we shall see!!
