I am trying to learn the benefits of resin beads over plastic beads, what are the characteristics of resin beads?- Wendy
Plastic comes in a variety of types and weights. Some plastic is harder and more durable than others. Resin and synthetic resin (a variety of plastic) beads are generally more dense and durable. The process of resin over plastic beads is usually done when you are trying to seal in a decal, picture etc. over the bead.
