In first grade we made an art project. I'm hoping someone can help me find out the name of the craft. Answered

We took a penny and embedded it in a clear liquid. It was a paper weight. No idea what the clear material was.. When it was dried it was hard as a rock. Anyone know what this craft is called? Thanks:)


Ninzerbean got it right. For something really clear, you probably want to look for "acrylic resin" (put that into Google).

Resin, easy to obtain at a marine store or home depot type store. Comes in two parts, one is a powder, you mix according to instructions etc. You will need a mold to pour it into and that part I don't remember how it was then released. Try googling "resin for embedding objects" or maybe polymer resin or epoxy resin.
