Tiny Measuring Spoon for working with small amounts of breastmilk powder, cremation ashes, umbilical cord or ground placenta, and resin sparkle mixes. Measure ashes and other powders directly into your resin, onto your mould or use a small pestle and mortar first to grind ashes a little finer, before spooning into your designs. You can read our blogs and tutorials on cremation ashes here:
Rememeber: every person’s breastmilk and every person or pet’s ashes will come a different colour or texture. The tiny measuring spoon is also ideal for working with ground umbilical cord and placenta powder; read our blog here for advice working with those. Please read our full Terms and Conditions and FAQ page before ordering.
Using A Tiny Measuring Spoon
Use caution and proper personal protective equipment such as masks and protective eye goggles when working with preserved breastmilk, ashes, resin sparkle mixes, cord or placenta. Use as many spoonsful as desired to achieve the look you want for your piece. For a medium size charm bead a single spoonful of ashes and one to two spoonsful of resin sparkle mix is perfect.
Sterilise the spoon in between different clients’ elements (milk powder, ashes etc) by wiping with an antibacterial wipe. Nikki and the Tree of Opals team use biodegradable plant fibre wipes then pop the spoon under the UV lamp to dry. This video shows one of the spoons being used
If working with UV resin we recommend you work in layers to achieve beautiful depths of colour.
