    Beginner Crafter Enters the Pod

    Hi everyone! Mermaid Mizu here, Iím still pretty new to the community but wanted to showcase some seashell accessories that Iíve been working on.



    This is really the foundation for a bunch of small projects that Iím trying to make and sell. Hopefully itíll be enough to save up for some fins, just to get good practice in.



    Very proud of this larger piece and most of the barrettes will be done in the morning

    After doing some snooping around on the forums, E6000 glue may not be the best (health wise) to use on these projects but itís one of the toughest. So weíll see how it all works out in the end!

    Iíll be sure to update soon

    E6000 isn't a bad glue if you're keeping your hands gloved and working in a well ventilated area. If you wanna be extra careful, you could also wear a dusk mask.

    Once it dries it's not harmful in the slightest and doesn't leak toxins into the water which is why it's so awesome for accessories.

    Then thatís good. I try to be cautious about using certain things in water. I donít have gloves but Iím certainly not breathing in the fumes

    A dust mask isn't going to help since those are for particulate matter such as sanding. What is needed is a respirator rated to handle vapor (P95). The hardware store here has the 3M brand ones with replaceable filter cartridges for about $25.

    You only get one set of lungs, so you can't be too careful.

    So it took a bit of work but Iíve made quite a few hair clips and pretty proud of them. What do you all think?
