Casting Bacon in Resin

Well, I've successfully casted some bacon in resin. The reaction between the resin and catalyst that hardens the resin creates heat and cooks the bacon a bit, which was an unanticipated effect. I'm hoping that anerobic decay will take place now that the bacon is trapped in an airless environment, causing this to be an ever-evolving work of art. However, after a week - looks the same. I also have a larger full-strip of bacon that I've cast in resin, but it didn't turn out as well and needs to be polished up before it looks good enough to post a pic. I'm considering turning the full strip into a lamp. Coming soon.
