Clear nail polish doesn't work very well. It can't put in the oven (hazard :P ) and if you wait like a month, it makes your sculptures sticky. (Learned that the hard way)

The nice thing is you bake the fishes first so when you put the nail polish on the salt, you won't have to bake again =]. I do recommend resin instead though =].

Hmmm.....Salt......

Yup! Some of the most ordinary things turn out to be quite useful =]

I'm sure you're overbrudened with questions, and if you are it's alright but can you explain the use of resin to me? Or maybe a link to somewhere that already has it explained? I don't even know how or where to start looking...

Thank you very much ♥

If you don't mind, I'd like to answer your question in my end of the month FAQ, which I will post in my miniature group :iconlittle-dreamers:. This question has been asked a few times now and I'd like to make a post on it =]. I will link you to the post when it's done :D.

What kind of resin do you use? :)
SmallCreationsByMel's avatar
I bought it in Hong Kong and there weren't labels on it. It might be epoxy resin, but I'm not positive =\. I sell it though. It comes in two small bottles, a part A and a part B (1:3 ratio). Even though the bottles are small, the resin lasts a longgggg time. I've used mine for many pieces and still have half the bottle left. I'm going to sell it for $29. Let me know if you're interested XD ($2 shipping within the US).
