Since we were talking about working with resin at our last meeting, here
are some links for a series of videos on working with resin.
I wish I could find out where he buys his rings. I've had this plan in mind for years for doing collage pieces in silver rings with resin, but other than forming the rings individually I can't execute my idea. His rings are exactly what I've been looking for, for years. I've searched high and low on the internet, in catalogs (like rio grande) and the closest I've come to finding something like that was actually in a craft store. Unfortunately, it was all decorative and ornate, and I'm looking for plain, basic and simple. I imagine his ring blanks have to be purchased in bulk because he sells the finished pieces for $16, and their just silver plated (which is fine by me). So, if anyone has any idea where they might be able to attain a similar ring blank, please leave a comment. Thanks.
Oh, and while we're speaking of working with resin, my friend Rosa made this cool youtube video where she shows how she makes some of her artwork.
