Resin Obsession Bright Green!

This is my favorite green.  
Creating an emerald color with resin has not been easy.  
Till now.

I am starting to post the results of the experiments I have been conducting with Resin Obsession's new color pigments.  Each project has me jumping for joy!
I am also using their Super Clear Resin for these projects.
I am sad it has taken me this long to try it.  The resin is spectacular.  I have had zero mixing issues and my cures are solid with not a bit of tackiness.

On my first day with the new pigments I made a small batch of several colors following the instructions provided.  I have noticed several interesting things.
Resin Obsession resin has WAY FEWER BUBBLES!!!  It mixes and de-bubbles almost on its own.
The color pigments stay mixed.  I assumed the color might clump, 
but it does not, it mixes beautifully.

The green I wanted to test in this mold I made of a jewel.  
I poured the extra resin into a round cabochon mold.

Here they are right out of the mold.  
As always, I did a little sanding to clean up some of the edges.

You can see how easy it will be to create unique and one of a kind components.
When resin is this good, it really does not need any additional embellishment.

By the way, I made the mold of the jewel in 25 minutes.
Read more about that here.
