I've got a screw loose!!! - fun resin cabochon cufflinks

I was looking in the toolbox - saw some of the tiny screws and decided to see what they would look like in resin
I put a drop of resin in each of the small square shape molds and let it cure until it was almost solid.  I put the screws into the molds and then covered them with more clear resin.  Once the resin had completely cured I mixed some more resin but this time added a little bit of metallic brown pigment to give this lovely chocolate brown colour and then filled the molds to the top and left to cure under the lights.  I was really pleased with the result and thought they'd make a fun pair of cufflinks!

I've listed for sale in my MISI store
