I've started working with resin recently. It's a bit tricky (resin stays sticky for much longer than varnish, which opens the door to all kinds of trouble), but I think I'm liking it. One thing I can do with resin that I couldn't with varnish is make durable magnets much more easily-- the resin makes a clear dome over the dyed paper. I'll be offering my first few sets at the Bloomington farmer's market Fair of the Arts on the 12th, and may add them to the online shop if they're well-received. Here are my first 5 sets:

Some blues and purples...

This next set is my favorite so far. A) they're asymmetrical, and b) they just look cool no matter how you arrange them together.
