Flickr Fridays

 

flickr friday

We’ve heard more than a few times that people are afraid to try ICE Resin because it looks “complicated” of having to measure and mix to equal parts together. Honest-to-goodness ICE Resin is very, very easy to use. Today’s Flickr Friday is proof. Take a look at this amazing found object bezel that cheekymagpie1 put on our Flickr photostream. She says very clearly in the photo description of “Transparent Wings” that this is her first try using ICE Resin. It’s gorgeous, don’t you agree?

Remember, if you make some cool creations using ICE Resin, be sure to upload them to our Flickr group and we’ll pick some of our favorites every Friday to showcase on the ICE Queen Zine. Be sure to allow us to download the images so we can feature them, but if you want to have a link to your website or blog be sure to put the URL in the description of the photo so we can not only respect your copyright, but also send people to check out more of your work. Thanks!

Ask the ICE Queen Tuesday

Hi there,
I have made a lovely little sculpture I cast in Ice Resin, and was wondering if it would be safe to put in a fish tank? It doesn’t float, which is a good start :-) Thanks!

Thanks for writing!

Wow, what a cool idea! Sure, you can use it in your fish tank as long as you’ve waited the 3 full days to cure. ICE Resin is non toxic when cured so it won’t hurt the fishies at all. It’s also waterproof, so it won’t fall apart in the water. Great question. I’d love to see a pic of your sculpture in your fish tank so we can use it on the website or in the ICE Queen Zine. Would you be willing to upload it to our ICE Resin Flickr site so we can use if for a Flickr Friday feature?
The ICE Queen

Flickr Friday

flickr friday

Red and black is always such a stunning color combination. Take a look at today’s Flickr Friday ICE Resin-filled bezel from Maro Morales. This piece, called “Nature Strikes Back” is comprised of Abrus Precatorius, an extremely toxic seed if ingested. What is so striking about this piece is the grid structure the artist arranged the beans before adding a layer of ICE Resin. This technique can be difficult to achieve sometimes because objects, when embedded, can move around when the resin is added. Trick: A drop of strong glue, such as Crafter’s Pick The Ultimate, on the bottom of the seeds and then set into place into a grid pattern will help the objects stay in place as the resin is dripped into the bezel. Unfortunately, Moro has not contributed other work to the ICE Resin Flickr site, but you can see the photostream here.

Be sure to become a member of our ICE Resin Flickr Group. If you want us to publish your work, be sure to make it so we can download the image. We understand how important your designs are to you and will always credit you on the blog. If you provide a link to your website or blog, we’ll be sure to add that to the posts too.
