I’ve been slowing down a little, needing some more inspiration on the one hand, and also being too damn tired on the other, but I did get some things done and started a new batch heading in the “cute” direction. I also <i>almost</i> managed to get your stuff shipped. Then the automatic post station refused to accept one of the parcels and I noticed at literally the last second that I had mixed up the labels on two other envelopes… Next try on Tuesday…
I got some new pigments and used them to stencil flowers on a black blank. I like it very much and attached an elastic.
Part of a straw flower set on brass bezels.
This one’s rather large and set into wire. it glitters nicely in the sunlight with its back being crinkled tinfoil.
Same technique as above, with crinkled tinfoil, but it looked a bit boring, so I put a lot of plastic “gems” on top to refracture light.
Some stuff I’d ordered finally arrived. 2021, when the most exciting thing is watching a parcel with llama moulds travel all the way from China.
I need to finish the matching necklace, though.
And last but not least, my upcoming project:
You gotta resin them all… Whoever owns the rights to Pokémon seems a lot more relaxed about trademarks than Disney, because you can get a lot of Pokémon themed craft supplies. There’s this guy in Thailand who makes excellent Pokémon themed moulds, so when I saw the heads and tails Eeevie moulds I had to get them. Shipping from Thailand was extremely fast, btw.
This is what they look like, ready to be painted, only that painting is a pain (ting) in the ass, because it’s so tiny and I’m no good with a brush. the Eevies got too dark, so I had to recast them.

The llamas are llovely. Also, the straw flower is beautiful.
These are beautiful.
Have you looked into FIMO? I think it would combine with resin nicely and it would expand your possibilities.
I did a hell lot of FIMO as a kid. I occasionally use it to make positives for silicone moulds. For the rest of you, FIMO is polymere clay
