- that if I do get the art metal clay to work, it'll be REALLY expensive to do per clip. Roughly, I think I'll need 20g of silver metal clay per clip, which is $60 + shipping on top of a $44 clip. So that's already clearing $100 in materials, to say nothing of time, consumables and whatever else that'll entail. And that's assuming it works at all

So while I was working on a bunch of custom orders on Saturday I mixed up some Ice Resin and loaded it into the mold. Because it takes so flipping long to set I had to keep tilting the mold back and forth to distrbute the resin as it set up. Thankfully the longer this went on the thicker it got, and the less I had to tip.
But here we were:
It was very thin and I took it out carefully, mostly worried I'd ruined the mold that had taken so long to make.
