The jar collection is growing

The gelatin has worked out quite well. Not sure of how long lasting it is but I suppose we'll see. As long as it lasts the next 8 weeks, everything will be fine. Some pictures from making the 'Holiday' jar

I like putting things in jars

So I've been putting objects in jars and setting them in resin as a way of preserving the object and the memory or story that it represents. Resin smells. Its a smell that lingers for days, makes you a bit dizzy and gives you a headache. I'm not a big fan of it so my next experiment is going to be with gelatin - its cheaper and you can eat it. I'm working on prints, books and drawings to go along with my jars.....I've still got more jars to do though....a lot more.
