Yet Another Happy Resin Mistake/Accident!

 This ring should be called the accidental rock stack!
 In several of my blog posts I have shown this tray of stone which I use when I pour resin into something that does not have a flat bottom.  Some people work in a bowl of rice or sand.  No matter what you use it sure does come in handy to have a bowl like this in your studio.
Occasionally, even when I work carefully, I do have a resin over pour.  I am pretty sure when I worked in these shells a while back that some of the resin oozed out of my top shell's holes.
 Yesterday I ran my fingers through the bowl looking for an item that fell and low and behold I pulled out this perfect stack of stone!
 The stones are permanently piled up!
What a great accident!  I don't think I could have stacked them any better.

It looks great, Carmi! Funny how things like this happen by accident, but they're usually impossible to recreate intentionally.

My favorite quote of all time is..... "A mistake is only an embellishment opportunity." Don't know who said it but I live by this for all the art I do.
