  1. Hello can you tell me the brand of enamelling crayons you use as well as the soft (liquid) enamels? You don’t mention product by name in your videos thank you


  2. Someone mentioned using real enamel (not resin) crayons in the comments. Can you fire real enamels (glass) with ice resin? Do you need a mold to do that, and if so, do you sell them?

  3. Good Morning, I have been purchasing Ice Resin for several years. Now I am finding that most of my jewelry samples which have been kept clean and dry since initial creation have been yellowing. In addition items sold previously in pristine condition and totally clear and crisp are also apparently yellowing. Everyone is told to remove the jewelry prior to bathing or applying lotions and such. It became such a problem that I am going to switch to glass inserts for a few months. My friends and more importantly the jewelry artists purchasing my digital collage sheets for use in their creations have asked me which product to recommend. I have of course recommended “ice resin” They also are either having to replace their sold pieces or in some cases Feedback was already left for them several months earlier and they just send out a free gift etc with an apology. We thought non yellowing meant “non yellowing” as long as the piece was cared for properly. The bottles arriving many times are dark yellow to begin with and cannot be used. This is not a case of artisans not creating the proper mixture equivalents prior to pour. They have been doing this for yrs. One of my good friends is creating and fulfilling jewelry for two large magazines. She is in danger of losing those accounts if the product cannot sustain it’s clarity. HELP! Any advice or adjustment to the product to correct the yellowing (weeks to months) after the jewelry pieces have been sold would be very beneficial. Since I recommended this product to my graphic customers I felt responsible to write. Plus they have tied me to a chair and are feeding me Twinkies until you send help. Just kidding.
    Have a wonderful day
