Gilders Paste on Resin and Wood

I wonder if you can tell which of these beads are inexpensive resin and which are wood?

I have really enjoyed working my way through this assorted bag of resin beads.  I keep finding little gems to alter.

I applied several different Gilders Paste colours to these beads; Patina, Pinotage, African Gold and Violet.

I covered the beads with several layers of Inca Gold.  I really liked them but felt I needed  few more to create an interesting necklace.

I used the same colour palette on these wood beads.  They turned out just as well as the resin beads did!

My work bench looked great.

This means that whether I choose to work with inexpensive wood or resin beads I can still create a whole new set!
