Doming Resin Pendant Trays ?

Anyone using Colores Doming Resin (or another resin) in pendant trays? I have 100 trays from China Findings. They are too deep for the drops, so I need to make Colores work. I am getting bubbles deep (touching the image) that are too deep for me to get. They dont seem to be working themselves up to the top.

Also, the resin seems to be yellowing or something. Its so thick that next to the same image on a bottlecap, the pendant looks quite dull.

I really dont want to switch resin right now (cash you know). Anyone have a good technique that works for them? Thanks for your thoughts. Sally

Ive been meaning to do the same but after hearing people having issues with bubbles and such lately Ive been chickening out…plus the only time I get to do it is in the nitetime when everyone is asleep otherwise Id have kids running back and forth and wanting to dig in and touch everything. Ive been debating on sending my supplies to someone to do for me.

If they are really deep i would do it in two layers instead of all at once. HTH

Thanks for the video link. I had seen that before but forgot about it. My pendant trays seem like they are 3 times that deep. Im not impressed with the amount of resin it takes to fill them.

I will try working in two layers. Has anyone done that before? I switched to mod podge for sealing my image, and I think the air bubbles that Im getting are sitting in the brush strokes from the mod podge. Its been quite a bummer to not get a perfect image, especially b/c I thought these were going to be such good sellers for me.

maybe a spray sealer would work better?

Ill try that, too. I used to seal with Kryon triple thick glaze, but the images on my caps kept popping up on the edges, so I moved to mod podge. I havent tried the Krylon with the pendant trays. I dont want to get a bunch of overspray on the tray though, right? Or maybe if I spray the whole thing it will not show. I guess Im just going to have to play with it…the problem is that the resin isnt cheap, and I have to use the whole batch or dump it. I dont want to waste all my supplies.

If anyone else out there uses Colores w/mod podge sealer, are you getting bubbles caught in your brush strokes?

Re: Doming Resin in Pendant Trays ?

they sell a mod podge spray sealer. i got a bottle at walmart. Hubby picked it up in the spray paint department.

Have you tried the Krylon spray sealer?__________________
