Little Windows Resin Projects

I have been preparing my bezels over the past couple of days getting ready to pour the Little Windows Resin. I have these sweet rings that have a round bezel on top. At first I had a hard time figuring out how to hold the rings still and flat for an even pour. Also, it had to sit like that for about 8 hours. I don't know how anyone else does it, but this is what I came up with. I cut a half inch strip out of a paper plate, flipped it upside down and taped it to another paper plate. This allows the bezel to lie flat on the paper plate while the shank hangs below. Try it, it works and it costs next to nothing.
The other bezels have a ring that makes them sit at an angle. To fix this situation I place each bezel onto a wooden skewer to hold it up so it's flat. I forgot to snap a picture of this sorry. I will get some pictures of the finished product.

I cure my resin rings in a dish or tray of uncooked rice. Holds things upright and is disposable where the resin spills over on occasion. Nice job on your resin pieces!
