My son has a boss lady. She's into resin art. My son encouraged me to do some with her. He really wants his mother to have a social life. Anyway, his boss lady is awesome. A ton of fun! She's the type of person who could make shoveling out barns a good time. Anyway, I'm into resin now. Wondering if anyone else out there is too?

"Resin" is a name for a thousand chemicals.
What are you using and what are you making?

I can't decipher much of what Andy Stewart is singing about, but it sounds like fun:   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ypqjHHvox2s

I'm the current caretaker of my dad's fiddle.   I did some minor repairs on it, but it's very unlikely that it will get played in the foreseeable future.  I'm so "frugal"  I'm reluctant to buy some resin that will sit unused.  Anyhow, that's my resin story, and I'm stickin' to it..... for now.

Mander, do you really need a resin to have a good time?

She likes to make coasters out of resin. She's a fun person. Like I said, she could make shoveling out a barn fun. I just order some stuff to make geode/agate coasters. It isn't my first choice of arts and crafts, but it makes her happy.

For many of us. The first time knew of or heard of resin, was to make clackers. Legal nunchucks, except on school grounds, or my house when dad was around. Brad

Be careful with that stuff Mander my wife and granddaughter are into the resin art and every time they start I start sneezing and coughing. Apparently My body doesn't like it and a few days latter the wife will have a skin rash. "You've been playing with resin again haven't you?" It's not the resin, is always her response. "OK if you think it's not the resin."

Thank you for your concern. Sorry to disappoint your wife and granddaughter, but i agree with you. I can't stand the fumes, they make me ill. The house reeks for days after and I feel noshes. Honestly, it is fun, but not so fun I would continue to do it if it gave me a rash.

It isn't the only hobby in the world. I'm hoping this is a phase and I can talk my friend into something else. I really like push puppets. I'm thinking maybe if I make one for her, she'll get interested and switch hobbies!

Go get some Bob Ross videos and take up painting. That guy could paint a masterpiece in under 30 minutes with no mistakes, only happy accidents.

Had to look up "Push Puppets" on Y'allTube

 

 

Now, if you give this guy a TALL hat and a CURLY mustache,  I will have become a Graven Image, and Moses will be quite irate!
