I’ve been having fun playing with resin again lately. These are all made from molds and 2-part epoxy resin which takes about 24 hours to fully cure and harden. I use various things like metallic glitters, mica powders, and alcohol inks to color and “paint” the designs. Most of these are done backwards, meaning I don’t see the finished front until it’s cured and I unmold it. So there’s always a little bit of experiment and surprise.
So…yeah that’s just some of it. It’s been a little bit of a kick for me the last couple weeks.
Wow! Gorgeous sparkle and colors.
Ooooh they’re so fun, I love them all!! That bee one is especially gorgeous
These are all soooo cooool!
Someday I’ll play with resin, this makes me want someday to be sooner. How pretty.
Do you paint your molds before pouring the resin?
Yeah if I’m using mica powder, I use a small brush and paint the inside of the mold before pouring the resin. Same with glitter, I fill in the design areas with the color. Alcohol inks get added straight to the resin and mixed.
The yellow moon Ouija board thingy (technical term) is my favorite. The colors are stunning. The moon almost seems to glow.
They are all every cool.
Yours are super pretty! I love the bee mirror one. I keep looking at that mold set but haven’t bought it for myself yet.
That is so cool! What a nifty process, and then a fun surprise! Lovely work.
These are so fun and colorful. Love the sparkle!!
They’re all gorgeous. I really love the planchettes. Are you creating any Ouji/spirit boards to go with them?
Not seeing how your project looks until you take it out of the mold sounds so nerve wracking!
Not at the moment. But I might at some point. I actually just kinda like the planchettes on their own as decoration but if I find a suitable mold, I might make some boards. It would be a pretty big pour though!
That glitter is soooo cool with your pieces! I love these.
They are all amazing, the light colored cat on is my favorite. You did a really amazing job.
