It seems nobody did resin reaper before, probably.

So I tried one. Buuuutttt!! No skills, Tooooooooo many bubbles.

I suggest people both interested in SuperHOT peppers and resin DIY could try this. Alot of FUN!

there is a kind of popular DIY stuff called 'secret wood' which is made by resin and woods.

normally, people put bugs or dry flowers in the resin. So I tried reaper.

 

If with better skills, there shall be no bubble in it. that will be more goodlooking.

It looks cool with a gnarly pod like a reaper. Try something pretty like a chocolate Scotch Bonnet or a pumpkin Habanero. Maybe sell them.

You need a vacuum chamber to get rid of the bubbles, even a hand pump in a sealed container will do to pull out the air. Nice !

Would make a great gift for the chili head. Once you get the process nailed down you should really consider selling them.

would the fruit still rot inside? cuz that would be a bummer.

bugs and dried flowers are one thing, but a fruit full of moisture, oil, and mold/bacteria would maybe still break down?

 

a really cool idea if they are preserved that way though

I did a google search on it and looks like people do it with all kinds of food items and it apparently preserves it too. I saw one of a slice of pizza lol

Really like this! If you weren't in China I would say I could send you some more pods to practice on.

 

The vacuum pump sounds like it will solve your bubble problems. 

Maybe an ammo crate or something with the pump sealed into it? I'm sure there are diy vacuum chambers on the net.

My food saver has a hose attachment. That could probably be rigged up somehow to work

Even a sturdy box inside of a foodsaver bag might work. I didn't really think about the vac sealer

A good vacuum chamber isn't all that expensive. My 1 gallon cost around $65 delivered and it will hold a full vac for days.
