How to Make Fabulously Flexible Resin Sheetscomments (5) August 21st, 2008
Looking for new tricks to try with resin? Been there! This is a technique I found by accident. One day I had mixed a batch of resin and accidentally spilled it on my waxed paper-lined drying board. The next morning I was delighted to discover that the cured mixture had dried to a thin, flexible sheet that could be cut with scissors, punched with decorative tools, stamped with ink, colored with permanent markers, and so on. It's kind of like a marriage between Shrinky Dinks and clear vinyl.
You can also use a chopstick to add small drops to make your own clear "bubbles" that can later be glued over images to give them a magnified look. Again, with the chopstick, try drawing swirls or squiggles. Keep in mind the liquid will spread a bit. Sprinkle opalescent white glitter while it is still wet to make it shimmer after it dries.
If you pour the resin thin enough, you can even sew through it! There are a gazillion ideas to spin off of this, and I'm ready to dive back in! If you try this idea, share what you came up with!
