How to Embed Flowers in Resin

Encasing items in resin is a way to preserve and showcase them in the
form of a nickknack or paperweight. The process of embedding flowers
into resin is a creative activity that you can teach older children.
Younger children would not be able to do much more than placing the
flowers and choosing the molds, but it could be fun for them as well.
You can create beautiful molds of flowers embedded into resin at
home.Difficulty:ModerateInstructions Things You'll

Flowers are one of life’s greatest pleasures. Unfortunately,
their lives are fleeting after they are cut. Through drying, it is
possible to hold on to cut flowers for years. Dried flowers are quite
long lasting, but like their fresh counterparts, they, too, are
vulnerable to the passage of time. Their colors fade, and their leaves
and petals crumble. By spraying, dipping or embedding dried flowers in
resin, however, it is possible to protect and preserve them even
longer, and to create new, enchanting objects, such as
jewelry.Difficulty:Moderately EasyInstructions Things You'll

Liquid resin is a modeling tool widely available from craft and hobby
stores. It comes in a pair of bottles that, when mixed together, form
a viscous liquid. This liquid is then poured into a mold and proceeds
to harden within minutes or hours. It may be molded into a variety of
objects, from homemade model car parts to cast figurines, and it may
be colored to suit. A creative use of resin is to preserve real
flowers in an acrylic resin ornament.Difficulty:Moderately

Flowers commemorate all sorts of special occasions. From high school
proms to graduations and weddings, you usually remember the blooms.
But flowers fade after just a few days. You can dry them, but dried
flowers are fragile and require careful handling. If you want a floral
keepsake that you can display without worry, try casting your flowers
in resin. Resin protects delicate fresh or dried flowers, and
preserves their colors and shapes.Difficulty:ModerateInstructions

If you have dried flowers of sentimental value, you can preserve them
permanently with polyester resin. Resin is a liquid plastic that
solidifies when mixed with a hardening chemical. You can use it to
create a large variety of items with your dried flowers, from
paperweights to jewelry. Pay close attention to the details while you
are creating a resin piece to avoid accidents and get the best
results. The process is straightforward and becomes more comfortable
with practice.Difficulty:Moderately EasyInstructions Things You'll

Resin is used for jewelry, paperweights and other craft projects that
require a clear polyester casement for findings like sea shells and
crystals. The casting plastic resin mixes with a hardener and becomes
a solid mass. You can embed your favorite shell or photograph into the
resin while it is still in liquid form. As the resin hardens, the
object becomes permanently sealed inside. Before you embed anything
into the resin, make certain of the object's lack of monetary or
personal value.Difficulty:Moderately EasyInstructions Things You'll

Reusing resin-backed tile is a tricky feat for any homeowner. The
first obstacle---removing the tile without breaking it---is an
accomplishment in itself. Once the tiles are removed you will need to
remove the adhesive from the back of the tiles. Tiles installed with
mortar can typically be cleaned by grinding away the mortar with a
cement grinder. Tiles that were installed with resin require a
different approach.Difficulty:ModerateInstructions Things You'll

The clever folks at Caucho are quick to point out that Quercus is
3x-5x faster than straight mod_php (without APC). But digging deeper
in the documentation, you'll see that the PHP-to-bytecode compilation
is only available in Resin Pro ($699).

What I'd like to
know is, how fast (i.e. how slow) is Resin Open Source for executing
PHP code?

Yes I know I could just test it, it depends on
the application, it depends on the environment, blah blah blah. But I
just need a single anecdotal data-point from anyone who's done it
before, whether it's statistically significant or not... doesn't
