Differences in Resins

The other day I finally had a good result with resin and my VU light.  I liked it so much that I had to try it again.

Here is my little mouse with Magic Glos Resin.
Still waiting for spring....

Then I tried a different resin I got at the Bead Festival last year - Gel du Soleil.  It is also a one part UV resin, and gave a good finish but is not as thick as Magic Glos.  It ran over the edge and has several indented areas, which are hard to see on the picture. I think it will be good to use when as a filling resin where there is an edge to stop it from running, like some bracelet blanks or bezels.
