Exploring resin and how to use common household items.
There are many types of resin on the market, please read your resins specific instructions before use. These hints may help you explore resin. Resin can always be layered just repeat steps.
1. Gather your supplies. You will need…
a. Resin, mixing cups, often available at the grocery store or small medicine cups available at the pharmacy. Make sure the cups don’t have wax in them which could interfere with the resin.
b. Something to stir the resin with, toothpicks, or even plastic forks, knifes or spoons.
c. Mod Podge® (available at craft stores) or white glue (like Elmers ®) if working with photos or paper, you must cover the front and back of the paper and the edges with two coats of Mod Podge® or glue and let it dry completely before pouring your resin. You can also put a little Mod Podge® in the base of the piece you are working on to hold your paper or photo before adding the resin..
d. Watch or clock to check the time.
e. A box to work on, please see photo to see how I cut a slit in the box so the ring can rest flat while you pour the resin. Wax paper or a garbage bag also makes a great work surface.
f. A cup or bowl (that you will use only for crafts to cover your work to keep dust free.)
g. Paper towels for clean up.
h. Duct tape
2. Carefully measure equal parts of the resin into 2 cups, if the resin bottle feels cool you may want to warm it slightly under running water, I find I have my best results when the resin has been warmed prior to use. (Be sure to wipe the bottle dry before opening the resin as to avoid water getting in the resin.)
3. Stir the two into one after they are carefully measured, for 60 seconds.
4. Then transfer the resin to a clean cup and stir an additional minute.
5. I let the resin set a minute it will begin releasing some of the bubbles at this point.
6. Now you can pour your resin into your jewelry piece. I find that a plastic spoon works well for this as it is easy to spoon the resin into your piece. I use a box as a work space and I use them over and over as it protects your work surface. For safety do not work near and open flame and work where there is plenty of ventilation.
7. For open back pieces, wrap the back with duct tape making sure it is securely attached to avoid a leak. For my BOX RINGS I wrap them tightly with duct tape to keep the piece clean from the resin. If you use the tape, do not remove it until the resin is dry.
8. Cover the piece with a plastic cup or small box to keep dust or insects from settling in the piece as it dries.
9. Most resins dry to touch in about 8 hours yet it usually takes a few days for the pieces to cure, read your directions on your bottle for your specific resin. If you have taped your piece, remove and enjoy your new piece.
