Sticky resin :(

My first set of resin pendants came out of the molds with relative ease. (The resin was very firm and easily poped out of the molds)... My second set, not so simple. I tried to pop these pendants out of the molds (after the same amount of time to cure as I let the others sit for) and they were still sticky :( (Firm but tacky to the touch.) Collin was able to (with effort) pop a few of them out and they are noticibly less firm then the first set I made. I will let the rest of them cure for another 12 hours or so.

But I am HOOKEd on this, so I HAD to find something else to use as a new mold. You'll laugh at what I found to use: plastic lids, packaging from sequins, plastic packaging from a bike tool, the plastic packaging for AA batteries, the plastic casing that a piece from my computer came in. Ingenious or what? Once the resin sets these pieces should come out clean, so I won't be wrecking anything! (Maybe I should just look into investing in the mold release so I can use firmer molds, like ice cube trays, without so much effort required to pop the resin out once it's set.)
PS... I also found out to get a pearlescence resin all I need to do is add eye shadow... and Lord knows I have more then enough eye shadow to last me a few lifetimes. LOL

I would venture to say that resin is one of those famously tempermental mediums. If the weather was more humid than normal, whatever you put into the resin was different. Pretty much any slight change would make a difference in the way that it sets up.
I'm looking forward to seeing what you've cooked up.

Hi, I do believe your site may be having web browser compatibility issues.
When I look at your site in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in IE,
it has some overlapping issues. I simply wanted to provide
you with a quick heads up! Aside from that, fantastic website!
