Ornaments with art resin

Another experiment with art resin, this time done on basswood and butternut wood ornaments.
It would be easy to do this project with a scroll saw to help to cut out the pattern but I used just my regular carving tools, I might buy a small scroll saw if I carry on with these experiments.

The butternut discs are chip carved around the edges on both sides, the center is carved out and the art resin was poured in multiple coats:

The same done with basswood discs except here I completely carved out the center and inserted small stars in the middle. The one on the left is mahogany wood and the second one is sequoia:
