I've done plenty of circular resin-pour pieces before. This one is a little different though. A friend asked me to make this with colours she chose, which is not that unusual, except she plans to turn this into a lazy-susan! I'm looking forward to being invited over...
Fairy lights aren’t just for Christmas displays.
Carefully placing fairy lights into the pyramid resin mould can produce amazing results. As each coloured layer of resin goes in, I lay the lights around so they will be visible from each side of the finished pyramid.
The problem with putting lights in my resin pyramid, is where should the batteries go? From the bottom of the pyramid is a wire connecting to a battery box with two AA batteries.
Once the pyramid is set, we use it to get the size for the wooden base. The base lifts the pyramid up enough for the battery box to be hidden underneath.
As much as I love this creation, I had to say goodbye to it this week when its new owner took it home. Don’t worry though, there will be more. Simon is a bit angry with me for not taking more photos as this was being made, because they would have looked great as part of this blog post, so I will just have to make more pyramids with lights so we can show you the creation process.
Watch this space…we’ll post a link to a future blog post here to show how these pyramids are made.
