    I appologise, I had always thought of it all as resin myself, however, I'm awaree they tend to be marketed as cold enamels (I don't see it's anywhere near the same thing) so wanted to use the 'correct term', that backfired.
    Is there any actual difference between what is known as cold enamel and normal casting resin?
    Thanks

    They tend to be marketed as cold enamels as it links it with a more expensive time consuming process....
    I believe casting resin has a different chemical make up which gives it slightly different properties. I currently use colores resin (which has very vibrant colours) but the resins Cooksons sell look really good too. If they ever want anyone to do an independant review I'd gladly volunteer

    The Thoth pendant is done using the colores transparent range but I add in Pearl Ex pigments as it gives the resin a more enamel like look.

    Oh My
    Barbara - breathe OK, Ok I'll tell you about coloured concrete
    Here's a link to Lulubug jewellery on Etsy she's taken the use of coloured concrete to an absolute artform!
    Most of the designs could also use polymer clay though, so for folks who have a ready supply of Fimo,Sculpey etc her shop will also serve as a fabulous source of inspiration...
    I bought one of Lulubugs pendants and it's a really unusual texture

    If you want to get some then WholeLottaWhimsey in the USA sell it HERE
