More Resin Experiments

I’ve wanted to make some kind of talisman type pendant as love that ancient rustic look but the problem is, my creativity seems to have some kind of blockage as I can never achieve the look. I’ve learned to go with the flow and not fight it. I’m still going to make something that looks like a contemporary talisman pendant – if there is a thing like that. So, I started with these three pieces. I don’t know if I’m going to use them all in one pendant as I plan to add other components.

I got a reflection when I took the picture on the pink piece so that thing on the right is just light bouncing off it. It’s really smooth and clear. I used Adirondack Inks. The colors are nothing like the way the colors turn out on other things, like fabric. On the left, the jello orange color is Cranberry, the middle one is Wild Plum, and the right one I used Stream. I wanted a purple one but the Eggplant color turned out an awful bluish gray. It wasn’t pretty. What I like about the Adirondack Inks is the transparency. I still want to try oil paints and chalk pastels in resin. If the chalk pastels work, I’ll be able to get a lot of different colors. Yeah!!
