Water Gel

I was on vacation and couldn't find a store that sold resin, so I tried Water Gel instead.
I set the bottle of gel in a pot of boiling water. Turned the stove off and in about 10 minutes the gel was fully melted.

The gel stays liquid for a while (about 20 minutes for me), but as soon as it touches a cool surface it solidifies slightly, so be aware of that.

This was nice to play around with, but resin is the best option for a project like this because it's permanent. Whereas this gel will never completely solidify (because it's gel..lol).

Also, this gel is really intended for faux floral arrangements. It simulates the water in a vase and it reusable :)

The gel is great, but resin is better because it dries much harder than the water gel.

Enjoy!
