Q&A with LynzCraftz

sewmom asked:
Amazing!! So you made some faux malachite, then placed your purchased glass stone over? Do you think the same effect could be obtained with resin?
LynzCraftz answered:
Absolutely! Not sure about wrapping the leaves around it after the resin cures, only because I've never tried. My only question would be wheather or not the clay would adhere to the resin after the resin is cured, like the resin adheres to the clay. It's sure worth a small test I'd think. But the faux malacite with resin over would be lovely, I love the way the resin magnifies what underneath it. It really shows off the detail. I haven't done any resin lately because I don't have a UV light & we've had a bit of cloudy weather lately, but I have a tutorial in mind that will include some resin...if I can get it done! lol
