Upon delivery of our drinks to the table, our oldest who is 6 noticed a stragler on the tray. A coffee bean! He instantly called it "Ben Bean" and became quit attached to it!
He wanted to keep it forever, didnt want it to go mouldy or rot over time, then I remembered Resin! Such a great way to experiment.
This is the resin kit I bought which is easy to use and has very clear instructions.
The mould I used are Silicone chocolate moulds I found in Poundland
This is what I made with the left over resin, thin embellishments ready to be used as they are, or painted with Glass paints, or stuck on top of other items/papers
And here is Ben Bean! Ben Bean is in the Heart Shaped Resin, on the left.
(We had to go and buy a pack of beans so our other 2 sons didnt feel left out)
