The Sims Bee Keyring

Here's something that I started creating in the second half of last year, either August or September, that I finally finished!

It's a little Sims bee keyring based on an icon that was created for when the Sims team at EA adopted a bee on behalf of the community.

I like bees and am obsessed with The Sims so it only seemed fitting that I make this for my keys.

It measures 3.4cm tall and 2.9cm across.
It's painted with Citadell paints and is sealed with UV resin which I am still new to using. I thought it would add more protection than just regular varnish.

(I'm personally referring to this as my "bee-ring".)

Oh this is sweet and as always, you`re so good at making things symmetrical and precise. I always wanted to make something with a plumbob but i just cant sculpt something with sharp edges like this. Did you fill this with clear resin? It looks so shiny

edit: Wait, i should read! It IS uv resin. Which one are you using at the moment? I ordered a bit of Just Resin uv resin in hopes it would yellow less than the one i had

The resin I've used on this is just what was left from the first one I ever bought. It says "Junesix" on the label with lots of flowers and pink writing. I wasn't really worried about yellowing given the colours on this.

I haven't completely filled the cavity with resin. Just a nice thick layer.

Oh yea the yellowing probably really is just an issue if you want to do something thats crystal clear. Looks really good tho, way smoother than varnish!

It really helped cover up the bumpy surface of the black painted area.
