Top Tip…Setting hair in resin

We get asked all the time about what can be set in resin (hair, ashes, body parts, etc)…

So this morning we got busy with the scissors, chopped Kate’s hair off and set it in this silver plated pendant mount (after having made a backing of white pearl resin).

Key point – once set in resin hair will look visibly darker (as it does when you get out of the shower)

Top Tip…Use a square-ended mixing stick

Here’s another in our selection of top tips. This one is great for making sure that your resin is mixed really well:

Resin8-Square-Ended-Stick
