Leftover Resin Ideas

 I have a little repair project on my table this week.  
I keep a number of molds on my desk so that if I ever have leftover resin from a project I just pour it into a mold.  In this case, I used two different pours to create the silver bird and the green background.
The colours I made by adding acrylic paint to my mixed resin.  One day I added the silver paint plus resin to the mold to form the bird.  A few weeks later I had some leftover resin which I added green acrylic paint to...that created the background.  I do see that the lower right side is lighter than the rest of the background.  No doubt I did not mix my paint enough.  No matter, I know I can still make something with this and I didn't waste any resin!

I like the variation in the green, we do it all the time with paper, don't we?

Great Idea, Carmi! I always seem to have leftover resin - especailly when I'm just trying to mix enough for a touch-up or a dome! I'll start doing this over the weekend and will even more "toys" to work with next week! Thanks, as always! Pat
