hi guys.

im so new to this.

ive read so many blog posts, forum posts, watched so many youtube videos and have seen various techniques of making pieces.

im very nervous about my first one.

i just made a paper weight and mixed some glitter in it in a small cast just to see the processbefore i put anything else in. i would hate to put my crystals in and then mess it all up.

the paperweight came out kind of cute. im not sure if i can upload pictures on there but here's a link to it.

today i tried again with the same mold but i didn't use glitter, i put in some copper i used from a scrubbie, a piece of clear quarts and some moss agate and calcite i used to help my garden out as a test. when it's done i want to just test it out in one of my potted plants and see what it does. it's still curing.

i used some epoxy resin i got from michael's.

i do have some pyramid molds because that's my ultimate goal. im a bit nervous about that though.

can you guys give me some pointers on getting it right so it doesn't crack?

whats the secret to layering?

ive seen some pretty amazing looking pyramids.

is there a best practice technique when layering with crystals? how do you get them to suspend in the layers and not fall to the bottom?

how do you color the layers? is there a special pigment?

there's two pyramids i want to make for a couple friends who could use the energy.

i joined this forum because the posts from here come up in a lot of my searches and you all seem pretty knowledgeable.

thanks for having me.

Welcome to Warrior Matrix Smile

There are lots of techniques to make the pieces the way you envision them. Most colors can be used as long as they are not water based. Some glitters are metallic whereas others are painted plastic. The Pearl-Ex colors make wonderful pieces - you can even use eye shadow that you crush up when in a pinch. You can sometimes find some resin colorings at Michael's and you only need a few drops.

Layering pieces takes time and effort, you basically want to pour one layer at a time, then wait until it has started to gel/cure so you can put in another layer, some of the pieces you see can take a day or two before they are ready.

Cracking can be avoided with very careful counting of catalyst drops - it depends much on the ambient temperature you are pouring in. Depending on the kind of resin used... we use about ten drops per ounce if it's about 70 degrees that day. When hotter you may use less, when colder you may need more - rest assured that it will cure eventually even if you used a lesser amount or if it takes longer than you expected. You can help speed up a cure with a space heater Smile or cool it down with a fan wicking the heat off...

Please post if you have any more specific questions and I will do what I can to assist.

Happy pouring!

Lena

also, i love moldavite. i was wondering if this is a good stone to add to a piece since it has such strong energy.
