More UV Resin craft kits

 As promised, here are more examples of UV resin projects made with the kits available at Ben Franklin Crafts.  These three kits (there are others available) are similar to other resin-like crafts done with Crystal Lacquer or other slow drying liquid mediums except that with the UV light to harden the resin, results are achievable in about 10 minutes and several layers of images can be added as desired.
I didn't follow exactly the suggested layout of the images and 3-D objects and sort of mixed/matched the acetate pieces to create a piece that was more to my artistic taste, truly making each piece a one-of-a-kind.
Here are the UV light and UV resin solution.  Both are available at Ben Franklin Crafts and necessary to make these kits which do not include the resin.  Some of the kits do have the resin included.  I was very satisfied with the results from these kits and even though the instructions are in Japanese, you should have no problem completing them.  Tips: 1)Small scissors will be needed to cut out images. 2) A bamboo skewer is useful for positioning images. 3) Clorox antiseptic wipes are great for clean up. and 4) Jewelry pliers are needed to open the jump rings to assemble the pieces.  I hope this post has encouraged you to try making some pretty resin crafts for yourself or a friend.  Happy Crafting!

Very pretty. Love the addition of the trinkets. Glad to know that the UV light is available at the store. Maybe something I will try in the near future because the end result is really nice!

Lovely. I so wanna try this out. I don't have a Ben Franklin though...and it is really pricey to get a resin kit where I live.

These pendants are beautiful! I think these would also be perfect to use as enbellies for a special scrapbook page or a card!
