UV Resin - Strawberry Keychain

This post may be the reason I switch to using UV resin full time.

There is nothing more satisfying 
than finishing a project in an hour.

Ordinarily with resin, my projects take two to three days to complete with resin cure times.  Even longer if I have several layers.

For my strawberry, I used UV resin, which cures in minutes under a UV lamp.
The resin I used is this one linked here.
I purchased this Japanese strawberry mold project when I was in Hawaii at a Ben Franklin store.  I wrote about this in 2016 in a blog post linked here.
I have not found these "My Craft Series" resin project kits anywhere else.

Everything you need, along with english translations of the step by step are in the bag.

You just need to find UV resin.  I added some links to Amazon in case you have never seen UV resin.

The mold will work with other resins, so if you have regular two-part epoxy resin, you could still recreate the project.

Do you see the words "True Love" in the kit?  That is a peice of printed transparency ready to cut and embed in the resin.
Adding pigments to the resin is fast and easy and they have these cute packets to work with.
This butterfly mold (also in the kit) is so sweet!
Even the tiny glitter is provided.
My sample turned out just as great as the picture!
I also think it is wonderful to have all the components to complete the keychain in the kit.
Total time needed to complete the project (with breaks) was about an hour!
