Failed Specimens

Like all forms of arts and crafts, it takes time and lots of trial and error to get something right. And the path to perfection is a long and difficult one. It's no different with me and my pendants.

This is just one part of my failed specimens. Up until now, I still get a few spoiled ones every time I pour that cup of resin. So far I only had one batch that did not spill, seep into the paper, or riddled with bubbles.

The rectangle pendants are new, this is my first experiment. I have no idea what happened to it! Suffice to say, these are going to the dumpster. Such a pity, I liked the snow rabbit too. :(

This one I accidentally broke through the sealant while I was trying to remove a bubble. So the resin seeped into the paper. :(

It's such a waste, as these could not be sold or even given away. As someone who take pride in her work, I will never let someone have something that is flawed! So all these are going into the dumpster, or maybe I should just keep them for myself as a reminder, not to repeat these mistakes again.
