Jewelry Resin For Repair Work - Another Great Tip!

 This piece is truly a resin repair project.  
Two days ago I thought I had a craftastrophy on my hands.  My piece cured on an incline and one side was about 3ml thicker than the other.  It looked odd. My table is not level and I have been meaning to sort out that issue for a few weeks.
 So, knowing that I would need to spend a lot of time fiddling with this piece I did think about just throwing it out.  Instead, I took it to my table top sander in the garage and just sanded the whole sample until it was even.  Pretty scratched up right?
Magically, one glaze application of Jewelry Resin to the surface and you can't see a single sanding line!  I just applied the resin like I would normally would with a paint brush.

Great fix! As for the levelling, I use a piece of glass that I level with coins before pouring. I've also seen people level each piece in a dish of rice.

My boyfriend suggested an open container in a tub of water would be level too. Or a Styrofoam plank floating in water. Not a bath tub mind you, A storage tub.

That has been my biggest problem in a house that's almost 100 years old...there is no level surface anywhere in this house.
