Resin is in essence the life force of a tree. Other wise known as the sap. There are many kinds of resin used in the craft. One is Dragon's Blood. This name can bring to mind quite a few pictures. I know, my mom asked me "what is Dragon's Blood?", "is it the blood of a dragon or what?". So I had to explain to her that it is the resin of a tree.

More than once I have had someone ask me about Dragon's Blood. So I decited to make a page on different kinds of resin. I just hope this helps people out.
