Out of curiosity, how nervous were you the first time you poured resin over clay figurines? I want to try this but I don't think I'd be able to risk messing up the figures I made :'D
Did you test the resin beforehand to test the clarity?

Bon-AppetEats Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2014  Professional Artisan Crafter
I've destroyed a few pieces before so I was a little nervous the first time.

Nope, I just poured it on and let it do its thing. I'm lucky that it worked so well.

What kind/brand of resin do you use? It's amazingly clear!

Thank you! I haven't yet. I'd like to try some in the future, along with narwhals (because they're adorable). Once I have time I plan on practicing other animals. :)

This is a very creative way to make use of an empty Altoids container.  It's like looking down into a small aquarium.
