Today, we’ve published several new tips & techniques to answer some of the most frequent questions we get about resin.

Technique 1: How to seal materials for use in resin

Before using porous materials like paper or photos, you need to seal them with a crafting glue to prevent the resin from seeping in. This technique will tell you everything you need to know. See it now.

Technique 2: Preventing bubbles in your resin

This is the #1 question we get about resin. Bubbles are annoying, but easy to prevent. See how.

Technique 3: Fixing a surface mistake

Lima Studios Crystal Clear Resin is self-healing. If you make a mistake, you can always sand the surface and paint a new layer of resin over it. No one will ever know! See the technique.

    Thank you, guys! Ever since Easter I’ve been covetting your resin supplies… maybe I can scoop them up now! And I really appreciate the detailed instructions. They aren’t as easy to find online as one would think. :)

    Have a Happy Fourth!

    I am having a lot of fun using the resin with my wirework, stamping and scrapbooking papers! I have made a few pendants and they are really cute!
